My daughter is almost 14 months old, and I just got an amazing job offer and am writing an exam today. If I pass, I got the job. It's a great opportunity, 40 hours a week, complete health and dental plans, regular promotions ans raises. But I don't want to go back to work. My daughter has been on the waiting list for a top of the line daycare for a while now, and I picked this daycare because they have the same beliefs I do as to how to take care of children, and I know that it would be so amazing for her to be in a top-of-the-line daycare, interacting with other children, routines and schedules, lots of structured play, all the good stuff. I know that it'll be good for her, and I know I have to go back to work...but I just want to grab my daughter and hide in a corner away from the world and keep her to myself forever. I know that I have more issues being away from her then she does being away from me. How do I deal with all these feelings?
