Keeping Up With The Jonses?
So, no, I am not sending Elijah to preschool. Insert gasp. It started with me not driving. We could get a ride easily but I just didn't want to. Then it became "I'm so glad I made this decision."
#1 He spent the first 21 months of his life in an orphanage and deserves this mommy time. I know this is not always possible if both parents work, etc. I also know this doesn't work for every child. #2 I want him (for my sake and his) home as long as possible before starting school for forever.
Now this is NOT always an easy decision but I know it's the right one for our family. We do "school " at home, I work with him on gross and fine motor skills, he gets the social aspect multiple times a week from church.... It's not a popular decision where it's just expected that your child(ren) will attend K-3 and K-4 and be enrolled in different extracurricular activities. But why? Are we just trying to keep up with the Jonses?
