I will be returning to work on Monday after being off since December 7th. Every time I think about it all I want to do is cry. I've been through so much this year and I've spent every day watching my precious daughter develop and grow and now I feel like I will be leaving her to be raised by someone else. I know everyone says the anticipation of the return is harder than actually returning, but it sucks. It like REALLY sucks! I will say that Lacee is going to be watched by a retired family friend and will be the only kid (besides her grandson she watches from time to time) and so I know she will be in good hands and well taken care of. My H keeps saying that it will be a "break" for me to go back to work and half the time I want to throat punch him when he says that I'm off to make my daycare list and probably cry a little. I just needed to vent to people who understand.
