I read through alot of the posts where women state stuff like not being comfortable with leaving their babies with "strangers" and honestly, I never felt that way. Sure there have been times I felt sad to leave my kids, sure there are days that I wished I could have stayed home (more for me because the hustle bustle of work/drop off/pick up/lunches/getting up early/cookign dinner late, etc).

I'm a SAHM but I've left my kids with all kinds of "strangers"- at the gym nursery, at family resorts and on cruises, with sitters we've hired on vacation.

I cried the first day of pre school, the first day of Kindergarten, and I will probably cry when they graduate HS, college, and when they get married. It is a mile stone thing. It is not a sad cry. It is a happy cry. I enjoy watching them grow and meet milestones in their lives.

No. I missd him, sure, but I knew he was being well cared for.

Where I sometimes wonder if I'm just weird is that it never even crossed my mind to feel jealous when he bonded with his caregivers. Nor did I have a moment's worry that he might love the DCP more than me. I felt completely secure in my position in his life.

Our own cl had a bad experience with daycare and is still a working mom that found a way to do it without using daycare and yet doesn't have negative things to say about working moms who choose daycare.
