Please don't take this the wrong way working moms!! But does anyone agree with me?!?!
She's said several times, she is going back to work the second they release her. She can't wait to have the baby, but then as soon as she gets a night away she will be so glad. She doesn't ever want to be home with the baby is what it seems. She's a working mom, and doesn't get home until 5/6. This tiny newborn will be in a daycare center.
What's the point, what is the point in having a baby if your not going to be with it, you miss everything. Your basically with your baby 4 hours a night and on weekends. Unless you work on the weekend or go out and party (like most parents do because they obviously can't stand being around there kids) you miss first words, first steps, everything! What is the point? Seriously
What really irritates me, is no, daycares are not safe, even the best of the best have had several reports of rape, abuse, neglect. I don't get how any loving mother can have a baby then drop him or her off with strangers all day like nothing.
I've been a SAHM for 5 years, I tried working for a month, my kids went to a sitter, whose home i inspected, who I ran background checks on, had followed by a p.i. For 2 weeks, had every single record pulled I could, and even called 10 references. And still felt guilty for leaving my 2 and 3 year old there. So I quit and stayed home, the job wasn't necessary to pay bills or anything, we just thought I'd use my degree. I never left my newborns, I have never been away from our youngest who is 10 months, only have I ever been away from my older two maybe 5 times.
Am I judgmental?! Yes, yes I am. Because these years are precious and I think if you don't spend every minute wi your kids that you can, you suck. If you HAVE to work, that is one thing, then don't have any baby's. if you HAVE TO WORK AND CANNOT AFFORD TO STAY HOME, then you should not have anymore kids untill you can afford to stay home until they are in school.
Please, like this post if you agree with me, I'm curious inpf I'm the only one! And reply too! I cannot be the only person on cm who feels this way!
