AIBU I have decided to go back to work part time used to work evenings 4 times a week from 6pm to 12.00pm in retail, I was threatened, abused treated like rubbish but I did it so I could provide for my children however was not fullfield.
My son starts school 7th aug he is just 4 tommorow,first child leaving to go to big school I have a 18 month old as well.
I have decided to go back to office work and leave my daughter with a CM who Im having problems trying to find anyone I have a good gut feeling for , this was something I was so against as I never thought I could leave my children with anyone else I didn't with my son, however to progress and build a better future for us all,I know I have to do this so am AIBU for feeling jealous that I have to leave them when I said I never would.sadand want to be with them but cant becuase like everyone else we need to work for finacial reasons.

needs must IMO although it is hard

it isn't unfair on dd to leave her with a cm for a few hours a week - she'll love it

my ds has been in wrap-around childcare since he was 20m old because I had to go to uni to get a degree and am nearly at the end of my post-grad teacher training in order to get out of the benefits trap... I felt bad but like I said, needs must....
