On Sending my Son to Preschool, and such.

  1. […] spent a lot of time debating whether or not to send our son to PreSchool before deciding that Homeschooling might work better for our family. I weighed the options and […]

  2. […] debate on whether or not to send the Little Man off to PreSchool this year. I’ve talked about all of the reasons why Preschool would benefit him (and me) because of my work schedule and I’ve spilled my heart on how uncomfortable I am with the idea […]

  3. […] And I know you’re all on pins & needles waiting to here whether or not that test I took was positive or negative… […]

    I’m a SAHM with two girls, and in the beginning I felt so guilty about sending my 3 year old to a preschool. My line of thought was “why should she be in school while I am at home?” She attended a preschool MWF from 9 to 1, so it wasn’t like it was five full days a week, but I still felt guilty. And then after a month I realized that she loved it and got so much out of it: the socialization, how to follow directions, and diversity of things to do. I also realized how it gave me time to recharge my batteries. Now after a year of preschool, my now 4-year-old goes into withdraw if she misses a day of preschool. She wakes up so early just full of excitement to go. And it makes my feeling of guilt melt away. But it was tough for me in the beginning 🙂 I think the full day five days a week would be too much on both of us though, so hopefully your part time program will work. We looked into the CDC here in San Diego, but then we settled on a preschool near our house. Good luck!

      Thank you, Kim! That really makes me feel good about putting him into a program. There are so many benefits. I just don’t want the mommy guilt of feeling like I’m dumping my baby off when I’m at home and could keep him myself. But you’re right…the time away will be good for both of us. 🙂

    Glad you found a part time program! Girl, I have everything crossed for you for that test! And that photo is adorable!

    Also? I like what you did with the design here!

    • Courtney K. says:

      Thanks girl!! 🙂 I have everything crossed for this test, too. I don’t like “waiting.” LOL

  6. Preschool is a huge, big deal. When we sent our first born to preschool we put her in part time and had to pry her away everyday. She loved it! (Everything except the nap because sleeping wasn’t on her agenda. Hence the reason my kids are 5 years apart!) She was such a little social bug and it made the transition so much easier.

    Sooooo can’t wait for the end of the week results. I know that God had a hand on you and has perfect timing for all of your new endeavors!

    Hugs! Paula

      Thank you, Paula! I feel like Noah will be that way, too when he starts school. He’s a total social butterfly and loves the interaction with other kids. Thanks so much for your thoughts and prayers! We’ve got our fingers crossed really tight that this pregnancy test gives us the results we’re hoping for. 🙂

    If it helps to make your view into your crystal ball any clearer, I’ll share my experience. I put my now-16-yr-old into the CDC’s part-time preschool after he’d been home with me since birth. He loved the few hours away from me, although I didn’t want to admit it at the time. He’s now an amazing teen with a great head on his shoulders, good grades, the whole package with a Tiffany bow.

    PS I wish you straight urine flow and a result that makes you truly happy!

    • Courtney K. says:

      Thanks, Carey! I think it will definitely be a benefit to both of us. He’ll enjoy some time with other kids his age (he really is a Social Butterfly) and I can get some things done around the house, without feeling like I pass him over to accomplish small tasks. I want to be WITH him and not near him, ya know? Thanks for the pee-stick well wishes!!

    I’m glad you found a part time program. I think you will like that better.

    Fingers crossed for you with the test.
