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?

I always said how it is- mama needs to earn money so you can have toys and cute clothes and we can go on a holiday together and go places. If i dont go to work we cant have any of it plus everyone goes to work and in the cars in the morning id show her the traffic that was there and say look people are going to work to earn money like mama. And i never had an issue with it anymore. Communication is key and you need to explain to your kids how life happens

My 3 year old loves walking me to the door and we have a little phrase, I always say okay baby I'm headed to work, and she will go okay mom have a good day and make the money haha. 💰 and I always give hugs and kisses. And allow her to close the door.

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.
