Leaving for work in the morning

My 2-year old is having a really hard time dealing with me leaving for work in the morning... does anyone else have tips/ideas for explaining why you leave for work?

My baby would NOT let go of me every time I left him at my moms. I would literally cry on the way to work because I was so miserable. I couldn’t help but feel guilty that I had brought him into the world without being better off of better planning. The day I got pulled over WHILE I WAS PUMPING was when I decided I didn’t want to work anymore. It wasn’t worth trading all my time and missing all my baby’s milestones for a paycheck and I want more kids so I don’t wanna miss out on them either. Idk how you working moms do it. And maybe you can tell her that you’re going so you can take her somewhere fun on the weekend that way she has something to look forward to and patiently wait for. Sorry mama

We always had a hard time with me leaving for work. I found being very organized and having things ready the night before really helped. But now I’m running my own business with Young Living and time freedom has been amazing!

I recently went back to work 6 weeks ago. My son turned 2 one month ago and is not adjusting well. He wakes up throughout the night crying and looking for me. He’s even mad at me when I come home from work. One day he even said he doesn’t love me anymore. That broke my heart. I’ve had to trick a few times in order to leave, he screams and cried when he sees me too. I try my hardest to leave before he wakes up but that doesn’t always happen. I try to distract him in days he sees me leave. Have him do an activity he really likes, set up an art project or colour. I tell him I’ll see him soon and that we’ll spend time just the two of us and do an activity or say he can come grocery shopping with me. I promise I’ll call him during my lunch which I always do. Most days now he will kiss me and say bye, but I still get the occasional day where he just wants me to crawl into bed and cuddle. It’s rough, I miss him so much when I’m gone.

I felt the same way when I started working after talking to my husband I found out he felt the same he said he hates leaving the kids and sometimes he even wanted to leave work just like me 😢 so we’re not alone talk with your husband it might help a little bit 🤗

I had this problem when my daughter was about 2-3 so I started giving more hugs before leaving and if it was really bad I would get my silly “magic monkey” socks (long socks with monkeys on them) put them on here and told her if she missed me while I’m at work to rub them together and when they get warm thats a hug from me. Worked like a charm.
