Hi Traci! thanks for sharing, appreciate it. I wish I could explain to her why Mom's leaving everyday but she's only a year and a half. I actually have tried talking to her about me leaving for work... bu she never listened. she will just cry out loud! =(

My daughter is 3, she started daycare at 18 months old, and she still cries when i leave her!! it is terrible. the only that works for me most days is let her know i love her and leave. Also what helps is telling her that i will be back. that seems to make her feel better. she almost immediately stops crying after i've left and i know that she is fine and well taken care of. it is much harder for us mom's i think. it kills me everytime i leave though. Good Luck! :)
