Seperation Anxiety

Hi Mama's! I've been dealing with seperation anxiety from my little guy and it's been crazy. He only wants to be with me. Sometimes it's cute but when we're out and about and I give him to his daddy to hold him for a second, his little face gets all red and then the tears start pouring out.

Oh my gosh I tell you, it's getting exhausting. Sometimes I feel so GUILTY for having to leave him in someone else's care when I go to work. But I always tell myself that I'm going to work to provide him with a better future and that he will thank me in the end.

All you working mom's - it's hard leaving your little babies at home isn't it? If only I could bring my little guy to the daycare center here at work - it would be so awesome so I could at least see him during my lunch break. It's crazy expensive though and I didn't get picked for the lottery to get a daycare spot so that solves that.

I've been thinking about working only 4 days a week so I could be with my little guy more. We'll just have to see. Anyway, have a great day!
The sun is shining here in San Francisco and the rain has stopped so that definitely brings a smile to my face.


  1. I've read that this happens around Mason's age, don't worry this too shall pass! Last week, I was feeling so down about being at work and not spending time with Tristan. The winter vacation really messed me up, but I'm better now. Hugs to Mason :)

  2. Try to turn off that Mommy guilt! You are doing a great job. I also work full time and the mommy guilt occassionally shows up. But after talking to a friend who is a stay at home Mom, I realized there will always be mommy guilt, even if you were home 24/7. She says she fells guilty for not taking him out more, smothering him, not socializing him enough, not paying attention to him when she is home, not having enough "mommy" time. So you see, no matter what we do, there will be mommy guilt! Just try and make the best out of the time you have together. He loves you best!
