Carson, living life with my 3 boys: DH, DS Dec '09 and newbie DS Sept'12
always two in my
I totally sympathize. I went back to work this week and it is hard. My work is a lot easier this time around, but I remember when my son was about 5 months old I started a job that required me to work pretty much from 9-7ish. By the time I'd get home it was about time for my son to go to bed and I felt like I never got to see him. Me not working was never an option, but after about 4 months of that I started looking for a job that would let me have more time with my family.
Still though, like Carson I right now have a good job that gives me lots of time with my kids and it STILL hurts to leave them. We have our niece staying with us to help with the childcare now and watching her play with my daughter and getting smiles out of her really tears at my heart. I feel like those should be *my* smiles, that somehow something is being taken from me. And I felt the same way about DH when he was a SAHD!
It does get easier though. It is hard when they are so little and your bonds with them are so new. Once they are a bit older and you can see them visibly excited about mama coming home from work, for instance, it is easier. Never easy, but easier.
Hang in there mama!
