My Life To-Do List
Goals I am working on:
I am a first time mom and returned to work full time when my baby girl was 3 months old (3 months ago). I am the only one out of my group of friends who is a working mom and I'm having a horrible time finding support to get over my guilt. One of my stay

I agree on the finding new friends. My SIL has made comments to me about using a daycare for my son also. She stayed home with her last child. there is a 10 1/2 year difference between her kids. The funny thing is my daycare provider is her cousin. I work b/c I want to. My son seems to enjoy being at daycare and seeing his "friends". He will be 2 at the end of Oct. You do what is right for your family and you. Don't worry about the comments from the SAHM. I would also say they are somewhat jealous. You get to go to work and talk with other adults about more than who was the celeb on Seasame Street and what Dora and Deigo did for the day. You can always tell them that you are working b/c you didn't spend all the money on college to show your daughter that she has to depend on someone else to survive. You are teaching her that she can do whatever she wants and to be independent. Also is shows her that you and your husband are equals when it comes to decision regarding how the house is run.
Does anyone else have family that's not supportive of you being a working mom? I grew up where both of my parents worked full time. My husband on the other hand grew up with a stay at home mom. My family hasn't thought twice about me working, but my husb

My son has been in daycare since he was 12 weeks old. He's now 17 months old. Do I wish I could stay home with him? Yes and No. He is a great boy and is just starting to find his own. Both my parents and my MIL understand my want to work. My hubby's SIL is making comments here and there about how she thinks one parent should be home with the kids. (she worked through her 18 year olds childhood b/c she had to) When her and my BIL had a boy she decieded that she would stay home with him. He is now 7 and can't tie is shoes. She has no patience with him to sit down and teach him how. Day care for my son has been great. He gets daily social interaction with kids his age and maybe by the time he's in school I won't have to take off much work b/c of sickness. He's being exposed to many colds and whatnot now so hopefully by the time he is in school his immune system will be working great. As of now he just had his first ear infection last month.
