Days like this make me want to quit my job :(

Eli wanted my mom today instead of me. She watches him when Luke & I are working, so he sees her more. It broke my heart when he was smiling at her & wouldn't for me.

I'm so worried he's getting to know her better than me. She watches him for 10hrs, 5 days a week.

I cried the whole way back to work & almost quit my job. I like what i do, but i wish i could be home with Eli more. Unfortunately, that isn't an option for me.

That's so hard. I needed to read this. My one-year-old said, "Papa" today and she hasn't even said Mama yet. I'm glad I can make extra money for my family, but I'm going to teach that kid to say Mama now. Every time she turns around I'll be saying, "Mama" LOL!

I just hope she'll know how hard I work so she can have a good life ;) My mom worked a lot and now I appreciate it so much. I know she sacrificed and I really respect her for all she did and does. It will be worth it in the long run. :)

Awww, poor Mommy! I remember when mine started at daycare and she always wanted her teacher and begged to go to school on the weekends. I was (and kinda still am) convinced she loves them more than me! I'm following you from Bloggy Moms.
