My almost 3 year old daughter started preschool a few weeks ago. During these weeks, I have felt major separation anxiety. I am a stay at home mom and have been since day one. My daughter is my life, my everything. She is very advanced for her age so my husband thought that it would be very beneficial for her to be in school, not stay home with me. I know that no school is perfect and that no one will take as good care of her as I do, but I feel as if children grow up so fast. I want this time with her. My husband thinks that I am being selfish by thinking this way. That I need to let go and let her be with friends and keep busy and do projects. It kills me to see her off to school everyday. I feel like I am missing out on valuable time with her. Just the idea of pulling my daughter out of school gets my husband very upset. I just think that he doesn't really know the separation that I am going through. Ever since my daughter has started school, my life completely changed. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
