Today I Cried Silently
As I got there at around 5:40pm (the daycare closes at 6pm) I head into the room and usually the buzzing room that I see in the mornings is not buzzing and I realize, I am the last parent there for their child....and my child has been looking out the window waiting for me instead of playing on the rug.
I hold it together and say pleasantries to the teachers, hug my baby and head for the car. Once inside, I cry silently most of the way home as I can't handle coming home late and leaving my child that long without the ability to come home. Luckily Tigger was satisfied with a car snack and children's music to notice my mood. Goodness, I'd hate to know what I would be like if I had a year round job with traditional 8am-5pm hours....I think I'd have guilt fest city going on. Thank goodness midweek next week we'll be doing the SAHM thing til end of August.
Mom guilt at it's finest!
