I know exactly what you are going through (as 95% of moms are) I decided to go back, I felt horrible, like I was letting my daughter down, I've been back for approx 4 months now, and I look back and realize as hard as it was, and still is, I'm not the only mom that had to go back to work, and this has really made me appreciate the time that I do have with my daughter (I don't take it for granted anymore) It's also nice to be able to be with adults, and she's at a good daycare, met new friends and is learning so much each day. It's very hard, and whatever decision you make will be the right one. There's no better feeling for me than when I pick her up at the end of the day and she is SUPER stoked to see me. Hang in there, it all works out.

It's really hard leaving your little one behind. However, at some point you will need to do that. Leaving your child 2 go 2 work doesn't make you a bad mother. But pray on it and talk it over with people u trust and you will do the best thing.

It's a tough one to decide. For me, I had to weigh the pros and cons. I went back but I took time to really interview and inspect the daycare she was going to stay and also started building relationship with the teachers b4 she started. Oh yeah, I also made surprise trips during my lunch to check on her
