What Melaniee said.

It's not too early to meet with the Enrollment Director at your local school to get the "lay of the land".

I can only speak for our school, but honestly, I have no idea why your husband's career choice would affect a financial aid decision.

DD literally potty trained herself at 2.5 years.

DS required a very little bit of bribing and was potty trained at 3.5 years.
