I have to just share - that we took DD up to check out her new school yesterday & she was THRILLED!!!
Background: she had been just home with me until the beginning of this year; when my work schedule changed from night shift to days. She has been going to a woman's house who watches about 5 other children in her home. DD has been doing wonderfully. (2-3 days/wk) But I really think developmentally she is ready for more. So - we have a family member - sho told us about this new place, b/c she just got her early childhoood educ. degree.
Anyway - the place is very impressive. Healthy lunches, lots of play & exploration areas, she has opportunity to take dance class. Much creative play, but it is a "learning center" - not just daycare. DD loved it so much - she didn't want to leave
- even though we had to get DH back to work. She wanted to call all of her family & friends to tell them about her new school!!
Part of me wants her to not go to a "school" - but I reaqlly think she is craving it!
I am a lucky momma
- DD was fairly easy to get out of diapers, once she decided she wanted to wear "big girl pants" (about 2.5yr)
She is still co-sleeping: but she needs me or DH to lay down w/ her until she is asleep
: AND, wakes up 2-5X thru night to nurse!!!
(Kinda makes TTC more challenging!!!)
