I'm a single mother. Literally single. I got artificially inseminated because I was getting older and could not find someone to love and felt my time was running out (physically) to have a child. It was the best thing I have ever done. I love my son more than I can voice in words and love being a mother. I have to work full time. No other option but I also like being a social worker and my job. I am gone (due to commute) 91/2 to 10 hours. I have just changed to a new daycare for many reasons. My 17 month old is very happy and social. I still nurse and co sleep. When I drop him off he screams and then I cry myself all the way to work. It has only been 3 days but I wonder how long this will go on not only for him but for myself. I worry all day about him. The daycare is a home daycare. She seems loving. When my son sees me he becomes almost hysterical and laughs and holds me. He has not really napped and eaten very little during those 3 days. I have no other option other than working. I guess my questions are: How do I deal with the guilt of leaving him? Is he ok? ( I grew up on daycare and am bonded with my parents) How long till he gets used to his new daycare?
