It's a hard, hard decision..and harder still to hand over your baby to a provider! I agree with the responses--your daughter will be engaged, she'll be entertained, socialized, well fed and well cared for. My son missed daycare when he couldn't go and he was stuck at home!
I agree with all the comments that she won't be missing out on family time--she needs some me time too! You'll be much more focused when you have time with her. There are no rules about how much time we should/shouldn't spend with our kids--how you structure your days has to work for both of you, and only for you. Don't compare yourself to your mom or other moms, cuz your life is not the same as theirs!
