There’s this little thing called mom guilt that I’ve carried with me since my first son was born, and I am finally putting it aside! I have been fortunate enough to work part-time since my first baby was born. My mother had watched my littles until they went to preschool at age 2. They now go to preschool 3 days a week and are home with me the other two. Their preschool requires your child to go full time one year prior to entering kindergarten.
I had thought about pulling them out and finding somewhere else that allows part-time until kindergarten. My thoughts at first were this is ridiculous- how can any 4 year old be tolerable when he’s in school all day. Then it dawned on me, I’d FINALLY have some time to myself that I hadn’t had in over 4 years! I talked it over with the hubby, and he too was on board with sending my oldest full time! Done deal- my oldest child will attend preschool 5 days a week even on the days I stay at home.
