I actually misread this the first time through and thought you were referring to a stimulating HOME environment, not school environment. So I was trying to say that i didn't think you needed to wait, ha, but you know that
My kids Do make it really clear when they are bored/needing more at home, but I actually am afraid Dd1 will just settle/float in boredom at school because she is happy go lucky and quite patient and once she can read I imagine her just satisfying her needs at home or by herself and not complaining that she's bored at school. I would rather her be challenged, obviously.
Anyway, I didn't mean to insinuate that my kids are the norm. Or that i know what im talking about, ha!! My kids are the only ones i know IRL who have raised eyebrows, so far at least. Your stories are so fascinating to me. Love the pirate queen. And I love the doctor chuckling over concerns of the second child being delayed because the first skewed your perceptions, I can relate to that!
