I been a stay at home mom to my 5 month old daughter and thought I would have been for at least 2 years. My fiance' and I are planning a wedding and eventually want to buy a house so I decided to go back to school and start working again. I will be going to school 5 days a week from 8-2pm for a year. Then I will be working full time after I graduate. I'm scared!!! I don't wanna leave my baby!! what if she gets hurt? what if shes not fed up to my standards? what if she suffocates? How will I get passed the fears?

Hi Tracy, I know how you are feeling. When my kids were born, my oldest is 8(9 on Mar 2nd) and my twins are only 10 months behind him(preemies 5 wks early), I did not trust anyone other than my mother to take care of them. I was lucky enough to stay home for 2 yrs with them. It was financial murder to say the least. We really struggled with one income and 3 kids to care for. Even when i did return to work it was us moving from Miami to Orlando, Fla closer to my mom. The same sub-division to be exact. The job was in walking distance. That was even better. When I got approved for daycare assistance, I looked at several centers. Found one and was blessed that it was well ran. Your daughter is much younger than mine were so I know you must be suffering. Do you due diligence and check backgrounds. They should have those on file at the center. Check and recheck. Ask if you can visit one day and see the day to day operations of the center like who's in charge of your daughter's age group. Sit in on that room and see if you approve of how they behave with children. You'll never get past fears when it comes to your kids. Mine just started walking to their elementary school which is about a quarter mile from our home. I drill in them to stick together always. I am always scared for them. It gets better as each day goes by.

I currently am not working and find myself taking them to school still. Sometimes I have to remind myself that they are older and have to learn to be on their own, so I let them walk home from school. If its 30 mins from when school let out and they are not home, I get in the truck and head out.

Right now I work from home with a great team. I finally found something that works for me so I am lucky..better yet, I am blessed cause I really don't believe in luck. It may be something you can look into also. With our business, if you are currently spending between $50-$70 a month on your household budget for things like laundry, cleaning, vitamins, personal hygiene and skincare, etc, I would be more than happy to share with you how I am earning an income from home. If you are driven by the possibilities of what this can mean for you and your family message me back and I will share it with you. Until then, stay uplifted and try those tips I mentioned earlier for finding suitable arrangements for your daughter. I wish I could say more to ease your fears, but I am a mother also and I know just how you feel.
