Making nearly 2 grand a week. Which would be GREAT for us. But they want me to start THURSDAY. I am so nervous because I have a 7 week old and now I have to find a daycare / babysitter on such short notice. Plus Im worried about leaving her. Any words of encouragement would help please.

Good luck mama! Do you have an relatives or close friends you can ask to watch baby until you find a good sitter/daycare? It will be worth it in the long run! :)

My mom is watching her thursday but she runs a clothing store. So she is only off one day a week. Other than that. No. Im just so worried because my baby is 7 weeks old. I cant imagine leaving her. I may sound like a baby and im thankful I got the job. But its going to be hard.

Oh yes! I know what you mean! None of my kids have EVER been in daycare, partly because I am nervous about them being in the hands of someone I don't know. Yes, I am a helicopter mom, I just want my kids to be safe and protected!! Hover hover hover. My mom and my husband tell me I hover too much. :/ But, there are many many many kids out there in daycare who turn out just fine. I would recommend trying to find someone who runs a home daycare, make sure they are licensed, and do some research on the internet about some questions you could ask the daycare mom to make you feel more at ease! :)
