Yeah, it's funny - we had planned to just keep the kids home and homeschool from the start. That's what we wanted (I have a MS in Educational Studies and my times observing in the public schools did *not* make me want to send my kids there) from the start. But after Oliver was born, life was pretty wonderful for the first 6 months, until he stopped sleeping and started crawling then soon after walking and Sophia started biting him frequently... and then Oliver stopped sleeping worth a darn so I was supremely sleep deprived... and I entered what I call my "hormonal hatred haze" but I assume it was some form of PPD. It was a really hard year before we found the preschool situation that we were ok with.
Anyway I was not dealing as well with Sophia as I wish I had and I basically feel like I dropped the ball. We heard about a small montessori school in the area and decided it'd be worthwhile to send her to give her something to do that's *hers* and give her social time that I couldn't give her, and I also like the montessori method. I mean, she did really well there (she's very bright) and is now reading and such, but there's problems with the "school" (it's only run by one woman who in our view has questionable judgement on common sense issues), so that's why we took her out.
So, I mean, homeschooling had basically been the plan all along, but now I'm terrified that I will go through the same hormonal hatred haze and drop the ball again... And I'm really bad about getting myself organized lately, so I guess we'll see how things go. Technically, DD only *just* turned 4 so we could wait a couple years before we have to report to the schools and such, I think.
I dunno. Last night I was saying to Dh that I feel like we should go out to dinner to celebrate or something
But yeah, the "unknown" in the equation is sorta making me nervous, I guess.
