To sum it up, I am a working mom with a part time job and I go to school 2 days out of the week. My daughter is with her grandparents quite a lot, which I see is getting her way attached to the point where I can't even pick her up because she throws a fit (screaming, crying) when I'm with her alone she comes to me gives me kisses (when I ask her) but it's as if no matter what, no matter if I am mommy, she will choose her grandparents over me. It hurts because I feel like a failure of a mom. In my mind I'm thinking that I'm doing something good by getting my career started and earning $$. Her dad does work and make most of the money, but we are so young and my paycheck does help. I just don't know if when she grows up she's going to be rebellious towards me and think that I just left her because I don't want anything to do with her. She's my baby I love her, She's my world I try to do everything to make her happy and laugh but no matter what, when the grandma grandpa card comes out I'm non-existent and a waste of a mother. Am I really a bad mother? Should I give up work and school to stay with her? Please help, I can't stand feeling the way I do anymore, It hurts. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
