My kids are now 3 and I truly never felt more in love with two little people in my life, but at times I need a few moments when I can accomplish tasks without interruption. Recently, as I’ve tried to make sense of my present life and evaluate my future; I have considered sending my kids to daycare for a few hours every other day. I’m a work at home mom and the older my kids become the more I need to keep my eyes on them at all times. It is amazing what two little girls can get into when they work together. I spend hours trying to clean up after them only to step away and do some work for a couple of minutes, and then return to the remnants of a cyclone destroying the room again. When I thought about the issue at hand I realized that a stay-at-home mother’s guilt is real when she desires or even considers whether or not to send her child or children to daycare. So many feelings take place:
- Will the daycare provider watch my children well?
- Will my kids learn horrible behaviors from the other kids?
- Is it selfish for me to want my kids to attend daycare?
- What is best for my kids?
