SO much is going on right now. So. Very. Much.
Friday was another bad day at daycare for the twins, so I picked them up and have not brought them back. I think we are officially done with daycare. I may also be done with advice. Well, I’m not done with advice, but I’m going to be a whole lot less likely to just take it. Mama knows best and all that.
I’ve made the most-difficult decision to send Louie to school and keep August at home. I’m talking regular school–shorter hours, more holidays, and the same teacher ever day. It’s also going to have a more rigid schedule, thematic units, and other school-like stuff. I think Louie is ready for a challenge and hungry for knowledge. I pray that he’s capable of keeping himself together when needed.
August is going through a serious Mommy phase. Serious. I’m taking this as a good thing–a sign of development. I don’t think it’s a good time to send him to school, however. I think now is a time for nurturing, for mommy time, and we’ll do our own little lessons, go the park, the library, etc. Rex will come along too and at Christmas we may investigate the possibility of school depending on how things go.
And Charlie? Well, Charlie starts school in less than a week and he is ready to go yesterday. We went to “meet the teacher” and he didn’t want to leave. He wanted to play on his computer, check out his old toys, and generally crawl around the room and visit with everyone. He’ll be on cloud nine come Monday.
So that’s where we are right now. All four boys are home with me this week which means it it NUTTY, but we are making it through. Somehow. Hopefully I’ll get to touch my computer a bit more after Louie and Charlie start school.
