Remind me why it's okay to not send DD1 (3) to preschool. Her friends can write their names, know about gravity, sing songs together, can read phonetically...
I mean, I know that play is good, but it seems like her friends are really flourishing in preschool. They must get so much more attention and structure than I am able to provide. We're stuck at home a lot with a grouchy napping baby, so DD1 doesn't experience much of the "explore the world" and "play outside" elements of development. She mostly plays by herself when baby is napping on me in the Ergo. Sometimes, she just sits and stares at us until baby wakes up. We do try to get out and do playgroups, storytime, and activities as much as possible, but it's seems like so much less quantity of education than kids in preschool.
Right now she's playing under a blanket with her stuffed animals, and it's pretty darn cute.
I just need some reassurance to not get competitive and not care about what other kids are doing.
