I've been a single stay at home mom for a year thanks to my mom, and the financial support i get from the state. Well in a few weeks i'm going to be working nights from 5pm-2am, and am very excited to be going to work, but i feel bad for leaving my son home with my mom. He's going to be in bed by the time i get home. I just feel like i'm going to miss out on so much. I need to work because we need the money. I feel like i'm going to be a bad mom for not being there for him when he needs me. Is it normal to feel like this.

Now is the time to take advantage of the situation and get a head of the game. You have your mom whom you trust to take care of your son. Do what you have to do in gaining financial independence. Work for your son's future and well being next few years.
He'll be just fine. ...pads on the back...

Seperation anxiety is normal.
I gotto hand it to you, I couldn't dealw ith it. I feel God has chosen my job to be mother first.
Thats why its so important for families to have mom and dads.
But not everything plans out perfect for everyone.
Congrats on our job, hang in there. You have the opportunity now to make more choices about family time(such as looking for a career you can do from home). But you'll need to support and family until then.
