Our little boy is starting daycare next week. Cue tears.

I’m pretty tortured by the idea of him going. On one hand I know he is going to learn so much and have fun with the other children. But on the other hand, I feel like I’m going to miss out on so much and miss him so much.

I was supposed to be starting work in March at my previous job but I was laid off so that means I will be home with him at daycare until I find a new job. At least I will be able to drop him off late and pick him up early until I find new employment.

I know being a working mom is going to be a tough transition. I worry about the amount of time I am going to be able to spend with him. If its a 9-5 job and Jack goes to bed at 7, I probably will only have an hour or so in the evenings with him. That just doesn’t seem enough does it?

And then how do you find time to workout? Going to the gym has always been a big part of my life. I doubt I will have time at lunch since I’m hoping I can work through lunch to get off early to get home to my husband and baby boy.

I would love to hear from other moms and dads on how they manage to work, workout and spend quality time with their family. It seems impossible!
