How do you leave your baby?

I was watching an old season of ANTM the other day (I know, I should be ashamed) and there was a 22 year old on the show who had left her 1 1/2 year old at home to pursue her modeling career.

How do you do that? How do you leave your little baby at home for weeks and possibly months? I just don't get it. This isn't the only time I've seen this lately. It seems like on just about every reality show there is a mom who has left her baby at home for the chance at fame and fortune.

I just can't fathom it. 

I get chasing your dream and/or trying to win some cash... but missing that time with your child on the off chance you'll actually be the one to win? Seems selfish and stupid to me.

  1. Yep. I don't get it either. I sacrifice a lot of income to only employ myself in a field where my daughter can be with me. In the child care field that is possible, it matters so much to me that I do it without a second thought.

  2. Who's ashamed? That show rocks. I always thought that too...but it's kind of true of any reality show competition

  3. I am so glad to see that I am not alone in that thinking! I always get frustrated when the people on whatever show it is sit and cry about how much they miss their kids at home.
