Mummy guilt!

So the time has come for me to find a job! Since having munchkin ive been lucky enough to be a stay at home mum and to be honest with you ive loved it every single second! I love being there to get up with him every day, get him ready for school, pick him up from school etc. I would be more than happy to continue being a stay at home Mum but with andy changing jobs there just isnt enough income coming in.
Due to not having my mum around and my dad not really being a hands on Grandad we really dont have any close family around. Andys parents live about and hour and half away and we see them once a fortnight.

Basically we need the money and I came to the decision that I need to get a job that gives me schools holidays free because ive got no one to have munchkin. Luckly I have a diploma in childcare and education so im hoping to get into a teaching assistant role. Ive started applying for jobs ready to start in September, So fingers crossed!
Im going to have to put Munchkin into breakfast club before school and an after school club just until I can get from the school im working in to munchkins school. It really kills me to think that im going from him being in nursery 2.5 hours a day (mon - fri) to not only him going into fulltime school but breakfast clubs and after school clubs too! It makes me tear up just thinking about it! Am I being a bad Mum? If not then why do i feel like one!

Since I started looking for jobs it made me realise that its so hard for parents who have children and would like to go back to work without much support around them. Cant someone create a job roll for mums that starts after school drop off and ends in time to collect at the end of the school day! Nope! no such thing!

Its never really bothered me not being a career person, im much more content being a Mummy! Do you juggle work and being a Mum? I would love to hear how you do it with childcare etc
Why do I feel so much guilt!!
