How do you leave them??

I'm already going crazy thinking about taking my son to daycare. He is almost 4 weeks now, I get 8 weeks off since I had a C-sec. I can't imagine leaving him!! I know the daycare knows how to care for children, but I don't want him to think I just abandoned him! I never pictured myself as a SAHM, and I'm not sure if I could handle the lack of activity and adult interaction (besides, it's not really financially possible for us). I'm going to cut down my work hours to 4 days a week, but I still feel bad about having to leave him...

"but that when they're under 3 (before preschool) it's ideal for them to be home with mom."


I do disagree with you here.

Jumping in for a sec :)



~I have gotten a ton of crap from SAHMs in RL about starting a career with young children.~


Can I just say that I hate it when people do that??!!!

I never had a daycare situation that I was unhappy about because by the time I committed to our caregiver, I'd done a lot of research and had chosen the best out of several good options. Going to school was a whole 'nother story. The first time I left my kid with a "relative stranger" was in first grade.
