    The first year of working or so was hard. I HAD to work for her first two birthdays. Other than that things were alright. She’s with me every hour out side of work so we get plenty of time. She also not needs the contact with children (she’s  4) and it’s good for her being in day care, she can make friends and learn well how to relate to others.


    I was a stay at home mom for most of the first year and loved every minute of it. I was able to have her crawling at just 5 months and walking at 7 months. I was able to spend time with her on her motor skills and all. Then I had to start working. At first it was hard but we got into the swing of things and I was still able to teach her things and have my goals with her me (off bottle at 12 months and pacifier at 12 months, potty trained at 2, talking, working on the letters and numbers etc) and day care helps with all of this. We get our quality time before I go into work and when I get off work.

    I hate I teach at a daycare right now,(trying to get a job in the school system) but it’s the best thing for me. She goes to work with me, I’m in Pre-K, she’s in the toddler room an I see her often. She also walkedand crawled at home, so I’m good there. Our Pre-K follows the school system, so that helps a lot.

    I went back to work when DS was 4 weeks old. I hated being home with nothing but a newborn and daytime tv. I give major props to SAH parents. I am clearly not cut out to be one of them.

    @Annie624:  LOL. That’s one big reason I stay in teaching!
