Bless your heart. I can relate over the pain of leaving them. My dd has been going to a babysitter now for only two weeks and I have been an emotional wreck. I'm a school teacher and it's just killed me to not be home with her. DH and I have just now made the decision for me to quit my job effective January 1st, though, so that I can be home with her from that point on. We haven't a cent to our name, but we feel that we can make it for the time being if we just change around a few of our priorities.
Blessings on you and your family as you face this first day away. By the way, how long are you away each day? I was only seeing my DD about two hours a day. I got home from work at 4:30 and we started her bedtime routine at 6:30 so we were having so little time together. That was a huge concern of ours. But many others don't have to be away so long when they go back to work. Hopefully you're in a much better situation than I was.
