I wish I could decide whether or not to get Wesley into preschool this year. I'm so torn on the subject. On one hand I want him to go learn, socialize and have fun in a learning environment. He'd have a ball and wouldn't be sitting around here with old Mom all day, listening to his sister babble and eat her feet. I just don't know what to do with this kid all day. I know I've said that before, but I feel preschool was created because parents don't know how to entertain their 3 and 4 year old children. On the other hand, he might not be ready for preschool quite yet....after all he just turned three only weeks ago. He's doing really go in the potty training department but when it comes to number two he's just not reliable. I mean really, do I expect someone to wipe my kids butt? He doesn't know how to do that. Do the other three year olds know how to clean themselves after a BM? I have no idea. Also, I hate to admit it but my kid seems to have picked up our anti-social gene. We'll be walking into a store and an older kid will walk by and Wesley will cower behind my leg and go "Mommy??". I have no idea why he's started doing this. It worries me when I think about dropping him off at a classroom full of unknown children. The other downfall I'm finding (out today actually) is that preschools around here start on August 5th. Uhhh...that's next week. I guess I thought I had until the end of August. I'm just so not prepared. Also, they are five day a week programs. You pick morning or afternoon and they go all week. I was kind of hoping for a couple hours a day, two days a week or something along those lines. You know, ease him into the classroom environment. It just seems a lot for this little dude (and his Mom).
So I guess we'll get him into preschool when he's four and he's stuck with old Mom and Sis this year. I guess that's not so bad.
