: OK, I am due to start school and face the challenge of putting ds in daycare. I don't "HAVE" to go to school, it was something I thought I needed at the time. But I am realizing I can't do it, yet. I am having these dreams about ds and I wake feeling horrible. I have been a SAHM since he was born, though I never planned to. To all the other SAHM's... how did you decide? I am so uncomfortable to even have family watch him, I have this underlying fear something is going to happen to him. I often feel a bit crazy because of this... please tell me I am not alone.

That's exactly how I feel.I 2 am scared to let go,I have been a SAHM for 9yrs. Although I'm feeling guilty for not contributing more financially, I can't imagine putting my kids in daycare and there is nothing wrong with Moms working and kids going to daycare,it's just not for me. I figure in 3yrs my oldest will be 12 and youngest will be starting kindergarten, I can go back to work part-time and have my oldest watch her two sisters, she's a wonderful girl and think I would feel good having her watch them.At least that is my thought, who knows what may happen!!!Shana ,Don't worry your not alone !! I think I'm a bit crazy 2!!!LOL!!!from Melinda.....
