I am a SAHM to my 20 month old son. About 2 months ago I joined a gym (yay!) but rarely go b/c of the crying that occurs when I try to drop my son off in the daycare room. Usually he only cries until I leave the room then immediately stops (I listen outside the door). The last time, however, he started crying in the parking lot. The crying was so extreme I didn't even bother trying to drop him off so we left. I have yet to go back bc Im afraid the same thing will happen. He has been babysit on occasion by my parents, my cousin, and a neighbor, and has always been fine. Maybe b/c it's in the comfort of his home? I feel so guilty bc I don't HAVE to workout but it's the only thing I do for myself. It just seems silly to force him in the daycare room in a state of hysteria so I can go on a elliptical for a half an hour. Additionally, I need to sign him him and discuss his food allergies with the staff that day so I can't exactly make it a quick drop off. He clings to my leg screaming. Do I wait a few months and try again? I felt like all eyes were judging me the last time....people watching me to see "is this woman really going to put a screaming kid in there so she can work out?!" He is my first child so Im trying not to screw him up lol. I know if this was school or I had to go back to work he would have no choice but b/c it is just exercise for me I feel terrible. Advice?
