I feel like a bad mom because I work at a day care and I NEVER get to see my own daughter. I've been there for seven months now and I think that It is starting to get to me. Then, after I get off of my day care job, I work my second job, so i don't come home till almost a quarter- to - ten. Luckily I have my husband (works aswell, but never a steady job, because he does construction.) whose great at putting our daughter to sleep. I just feel like I haven't had the quality time spent with my daughter that I should have had. I'm sceared to quit my part- time job, because I don't want to not have money. ( I know that sounds greedy.)

So basically I need a little incentive on wheter or not I should quit my part time job, or keep it.... I've been contemplating if I should do it or not, so please help me.

im not suprised you feel that way, you must be drained also. i think, people live to what they earn. if you earn less you just adapt, shop more cleverly etc. i think this is time you will never get back so just do it, your lifestyle will adapt

Im sorry u feel like this. I think you should determine whether you can quit your 2nd job. Like would you all be able to still get the necessities and pay the important bills without the help of your 2nd job. If yes than I say quit, your baby wont be small long and after she is older you can always get another job. Good Luck
