Transition from SAHM to WORKING MOM

Time to get back to work but how to deal with the guilt? I can't help but feel terrible for the kids being at daycare all day. I know daycare is fine and they will be fine but how do I deal with the guilt? Do any of you working moms deal with this?

  • I did for years (my son is 18 now). I had to work, no choice. I think (and have been told he said) he learned a good work ethic from me. I still wish I could have stayed home though.

  • I think most of us have guilt over our children spending so much time in daycare. We don't have a choice; we do what we have to do to support our families. It will get a little better soon.

  • The guilt never goes away. Just have a lot of family time on the weekends. It will get better when you see how much fun your kids are having. Good luck!!!
