Daycare :-(

Posted by tigerlady , 14 April 2010 · 644 views

Who would have thought this would be so hard. I feel broken. I feel empty. I miss her so much. I really hope it gets easier faster. Its only day 2. I try so hard to hold back the tears as I drop her off, as soon as I get to the car and i just flooded with tears. Yesterday I was at the dentist and they asked where my baby was....well I just broke down balling. :-( I miss her so much. Its only 3 days a week but it feels like eternity. I can't focus on work, I am just sitting here counting down the time to pick her up. I don't want to work anymore :-(

:-( :-( :-( :-( :-(

Oh I sooooo know how you feel! It's OK momma, it will get better :)
oh no...I will be going through that starting in July...I'm so not looking forward too it. Sounds like its not going to be easy :)
I am so sorry you are feeling bad. I remember the first day I dropped my sons at Playschool, I cried like a baby and now I am like "WOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! See you this afternoon!" But that's maybe because they are 2 weeks from 4 years old and I need the break now.I am sure she enjoys her time there and loves on you even more when you are together.You are still a GREAT Mom!!! XOXOX

My heart goes out to you!!!!!!!!!

Just the thought of my twins heading in that direction makes me sooo sad (and it's 7months away)! Sniff sniff.

Big hugs!! :)
((Hugs)) I totally know what you're going through.

I went through the same thing about three months ago. Dropping DD off at her day home was one of the hardest things I ever had to do. Before I actually started back to work I think I cried for 2 hours straight one night and then I cried driving to work for the first week.

I know it doesn't seem like it now, but it will get easier. Everybody kept telling me that and I didn't believe it until I actually had to experience it. DD enjoys going to daycare now (from what I can see.) That makes it easier for me to drop her off everyday.
It does get easier, I promise. My DD started daycare a couple of months ago and I would walk to the office in tears after I dropped her off.

She now knows her caregivers and will walk over to them and ask to be picked up. It's been quite the change. I surprisingly feel less guilty about it now!

The best part of my day is when I go pick her up though. She sees me at the door and runs over to me with her arms outstretched. Cutest. Thing. Ever.

What perfect time for you to blog about this.
Just today I put Maxwell on the wait list to start in February when he is 18 months.
I know this daycare as my older child went there but yet I still felt like a giant pile of dog poop.
I am in possibly a slightly different position as Maxwell would be going only for socialization and not because I am working (right now his separation anxiety is in full swing!)
Who knows when the time comes I may change my mind, although I am hoping that by then I will be expecting again and may enjoy some rest time lol
Thanks ladies!! It feels like it will never get easier :-( But so many of us Moms go back to work so it must get easier in time. I just feel soo sad and guilty. She really likes her caregiver and seems to be adjusting fine, its just me :-(
