Well, just before her birthday, Mimi started talking about school. "I'm ready sk-uhl," she'd say. We would load up to take the Big kids to school and she'd cry when we pulled out the drive through. I daresay I was boring her to death at home. Tiny toddler minds that are growing and absorbing everything like a sponge can only take so much "produce section science".
At any rate, the day after her birthday, she exclaimed, "I'm three now . . I can go to school."
After lots of investigation and visiting a few programs, I fell back on Old Faithful. This preschool has done me right in excellent kindergarten prep for two of my kids. And . . . let's face it, you get what you pay for. Preschool is like batteries. Buy Duracell and you get a great battery. Skimp on preschool and you get an angry grandma putting in her volunteer hours with your tender young mind. Well, that and a paper cross to hang on your fridge.
And because I'm committed to fairness . . . here's the First Day of Preschool Picture . . . just like the rest of my crew . . .
