I've been home with dd, 19 mo, since she was born. She's always had a lot of difficulty separating from me. She would get HYSTERICAL even going to grandma, but is a bit better now. We go to classes, we joined a moms group. But the classes are often huge, and its difficult to form relationships when a class is just 8 weeks and people come from all over. The kids in the moms group are always just a little too much older or younger. Its also not a very active group. Her grandparents are here, but no aunts or cousins nearby.
So I recently accepted a part time job. DD will go to daycare two mornings per week. She'll make some friends, get better separating from me. I can't help feeling so guilty, since I know this is going to be VERY hard for her. I worked so hard to be able to stay home, and I feel like I failed her, not being able to make friends for her. But I did the best I could!
Just looking for reassurance!
