Yes. I feel guilty that I have to work a lot and spend time away from ds. Yesterday I had to work late and he was asleep when I got home. :( I try to make our time together special.

But he goes to a great daycare with loving teachers. He learns a lot there too. But some days, yes, I feel guilty for working. That's my confession today.

Yes. I know I have to work to provide for him. But sometimes I still feel bad.

Aww! That sucks! Maybe on a day off you guys can take a special day together, just the two of you? I know I'd have loved it if my mom had done that. She worked a lot, too. I wonder if she felt guilty about it.

you shouldnt feel bad for providing for your child.  if you only worked part time and was on some sort of assistance youll get hell for that.  lose lose situation

hugs momma. i am a sahm but will never bash a working mom. i will never understand why ppl do. you need to do what you need to do. give him a big hug and know you are providing for him.
