OK - My LO goes in daycare part-time in a few weeks. It seems everywhere I turn I see SAHMom's who have horror stories of anything other than having them, the moms, with their child. Yet, as a teacher, I know better. I have many, no, the majority, of students I have taught use some type of daycare or sitter and they are fine. They know who their parents are. So, why do they make it seem like "selling out?" I mean, I miss working out for pete's sake and adult conversation. Is it really necessary that all my conversations be about parenting now? I'd really love a dirty joke or curse word at an appropriate moment!
