  • I had that feeling when I returned to work after #1. By #2, I was guilt-free. Not sure I can help you, since clearly you have ALOT more patience than me to be able to spend 6 years at home with them (Kudos to you by the way). I think it does better. Children grow up and they have their own friends/life. You won't feel as lost when you realize they don't need you. Just enjoy the job and the money.

  • It was so hard when I first started back to work. It's been almost 4 years now and I still have days where I miss my girls, but it's tolerable now.

  • it will change, believe me. i love my kids when they were smaller but i couldn't wait to be with adults and be out in the working world earning my paycheck.
