But I did feel guilty- I felt guilty because I didn’t feel guilty! I had read so many blog post and Facebook updates about people dropping their baby off at daycare and feeling so guilty for it! Guilty they had to leave their baby with someone else while they went off to work. Well, I just didn’t feel that way! I felt like I was doing what was right, what was the best thing for us.
I work from home and I knew and still know that it is impossible to divide your attention and time between working full time and taking care of your baby. One thing would always have to come first, and I think you know which thing that would be! I wanted to keep working and be fair to my baby and what was best for us. So I didn’t feel guilty bringing him to daycare. But then the crazy feeling came on of guilt because I didn’t feel it! Almost like I was “supposed” to feel a certain way and I didn’t so I felt bad about that!
