another reason

Oliver told me that a lot of kids have to go to time out in his preschool class because they cry for their mom. It has made me so grateful that I decided to wait to put him in kindergarten. So glad he is the oldest instead of the youngest. He is one of the only kids (if not the only one) who can go into the school by himself from where I drop him off at the curb....and as little as that is it changes my life. Because he can find his classroom by himself...I don't have to be dressed every morning. Not only that but before...I would have to find a place to park, and make sure that Rob was dressed and had shoes on. And Rob would always say "my stomach hurts" from having to walk too far and then I would have to carry him. So...I am just saying I feel good about it.

Is this something that ROB says all the time because Beckham constantly complains about a stomach ache... after running, eating, sleeping, watching tv. The doctor says he's just faking it but it's all the time and not just some times.
I think having independent kids has it's ups and downs...miss you guys!-n

I'm glad to read this. I am struggling with this dilemma with both of my kids - both have birthdays in August. I keep going back and forth about what to do with Myleigh next year. I'd love to hear anymore thoughts you have about it.

Our school date cutoff is in Dec., so when I had a 11/28 birthday I was in a quandry of what to do. I had her tested and all that. I finally had a friend in education who said to me, that no one regrets giving them another year, but there are plenty who regret sending them too early. That did it for me and I held her and it was the best decision ever. No regrets.
