Anyway, I wasn't worried about him being ready. I actually don't really know why we ended up deciding to send him. I hate to spend the extra money when I'm home not making any. But we went to check the school out today, and D. fit right in. The kids were coming in from outside when we got there. D. went and found a girl to talk to, then sat down with her and did their next group activity like he'd been there all summer. He was not pleased when I made him leave after snack time.
I thought I'd be sad that I've only got two weeks left before he starts. But now that he's signed up, I'm so relieved. I'll have three days a week where, if the stars align, the little J-monster will nap while her brother is in school, and I'll have some peace. Am I fortunate that life has worked out so I can be home with them? Of course. Is it a bit maddening never having more than a few minutes at a time where I'm not responsible for fixing every catastrophe, major or minor? Um, yeah.* Plus D. is going to LOVE school.
*Someone please refer me back to this when I'm bawling my eyes out in two weeks. And again when I have to get a real job because my babies are all grown up.
Oh and how might this be related to crafting? Like I'm going to be responsible during my oodles of free time.
