i start school the 31st,, i am so excited ,, i just know i will be happy if i become a L&D nurse,, there is nothing in this world more precious than bringing in a new life,, my only concern~~ other than math of course~~ is leaving my 4 kids,,i have never even left them w/ a babysitter, i ran an inhome daycare so i could raise my own kids but i have a 17 mth old and a 4 yr old that will be going to the daycare on campus w/ me,,i am so stressed about leaving them that i cry every time i think about it, does it get easier?? i know w/ the daycare babies i have had ,, they cry and cry untill their mom is out of site but then they stop and go play, i just don't know how i am going to be able to handle that,, not to mention i still breastfeed my youngest , so i worry about how he is going to deal w/ me being gone all day. my older kids will be in school so i don't have to worry about them , how do you deal w/ putting your kids in daycare for the first time???? i just called in an order for xanax but i cannot be taking that during the day because it puts me to sleep ~sigh~ i am sure i wil have to take one the night before thou,,

Congratulations on starting school! :hatparty: I am a stay at home mom in my first year of co-reqs, and I too have to leave my children with a babysitter. I have a 19 month old, 5 yr & 8 yr. It doesn't bother me to leave the older one's but sometimes it's hard to leave baby. It get's easier. We are in a routine and that helps so much. In fact sometimes the baby will put on her shoes and coat and say "Sandy's.. wanna go bye bye" (babysitter) .
Can you go visit the day care with your children a few times to get them comfortable with their new surroundings? Maybe send a family photo along, to relieve any anxiety that your kids may have the first few times. They probably will adjust fine, especially if they have a sibling with them. I think once you know your kids are comfortable, you will relax.
Good luck and enjoy school
