Ring around the preschool.....

Crap...crap...crap....I knew this time was coming. Hubby and I talked about it when LDG first came into this world we just did not think that the time would move so damn quick. We were bringing her home just the other day a mere 5 1/2 pounds and now she is a walking, talking, sassy toddler and it is time to think about preschool - only 2 days a week but still were did the time go? I am frightened of this process. I know nothing on how the in and outs of this "secret society" works. I know that the starting age is as young as 18 months but I was thinking about waiting until she was 2 plus. That is also based on when she was born and all this other stuff I dont' seem to get.

Is it because I am stupid...NO just thoroughly confused. Also I am dealing with some major waiting lists based on some of the schools I am looking into so that is something else you need to factor in. When did school becomes such a pain in the ass and such a nightmare? I did not go to preschool. I remember starting kindergarten, graham crackers and naps. Now some of these preschool offer organic lunches, french and math. I am like...... they're 2..... however I do understand that this is just one stepping stone to an academic future. It just can all be very intimidating and a little bit daunting.How about if I chose the wrong school, will my child thrive in the environment, will she succeed, is home schooling better? These are just some of the questions running through my mind on a daily basis.

I am hoping I make the right decision for my little bean and hope to God  I will not lose my mind through the process.

Wish us luck!

Home schooling??? I could not imagine having to home school my child. I am not disciplined enough.

Gia will thrive in preschool. Someone has to show them how to fab it up!!!

I know I had a moment there with the HS. Wait until you have to start there are so many waiting lists here in MC I do not know about the EB. Kind of intimidating but we can do it!
