I Left My Baby Today

My heart was breaking as I left the house this morning. You have to have had kids to understand why I was so sad. Today was the first day I left my Lion Cub at daycare. I started feeling sick last night when I was packing bottles, getting the diapers together and finding some spare outfits.

I really have the best job in the world. I am so grateful to have a fabulous job to return to. But the first day returning is so hard. Thankfully I went to a meeting with a bunch of bloggy friends, many of whom are moms. So no one looked at me funny when I showed up with tear-streaked cheeks and red eyes.

I know it gets easier, but I miss my baby boy!


  1. Hugs to you. It’s very hard and I don’t envy it at all. You’re an awesome mom!!
    Smile knowing how much that first hug will be at the end of the day.
    Just remember: You can do this!!

  2. Ah, thinking of you. I remember that feeling all too well. It does get easier but it’s not much fun sometimes 🙁 Hang in there!

  3. You didn’t even say a word. Bless your heart! That IS a rough day, that first day away. Glad you were able to be around good friends for most of it!


  4. WOW…. tugs at my heart strings. I never worked…. Always stayed at home… just made due with the money the husband brought home. It was who ever made the least money would stay home and that was me….. thankfully. Hope you can spend great vacations with the little one. I wish you well.
    Sincerely, Manzanita

  5. I’m always here for you.
