hey guys, this forum is godsent for mums like us. where no one else can even remotely understand what we go thru or feel like, i guess all of us here fall in the same set , reading these comments, just made me feel a whole lot better, just had a bad start off today , as my 3yr old, hugged me tight in the morn, wudnt lemme go to work, and saying he misses me n needs me....
Didnt know what to do, but atlelast i leave him with my mom and not MIL, so its a bit better, who better then ur mom to understand u. n have got a really good fulltime 18yr old maid, who really takes care of my kid, n his meals and even his meds..so she's not too young to not be able to take care of him and young enough to play with him.... so that's a bit of a relief ...n when i'm home from work, i dont need to rush into the kitchen (except for the days when my MIL is with me ) , but have some quality time with my son.
Even i'd put my 8yr career on a backseat after my kid, and have resumed work after 3 yrs, first i used to feel frustrated abt not having to be able to go to work, now am frustrated that i have to leave him n go to work. i love my work too and really enjoy being here.... but sometimes feel so guilty abt enjoying myself somuch at work n letting my son be without me , missing me........ :(
Guess the only way out is as UMA says, "Make the best of the time we live in! and please stop feeling guilty! " ........
Good to there r ppl who r feeling the same as me !!
Cheers!! keep up the pep talk!
