Zoe has been ready for at least two months to go to school. She is so very excited about going to preschool and getting homework. While I was at BlogHer, a friend of mine, Erica (she works for 5minutesformom) was telling me everything she needs to get done in a week for back to school with her three children. That reminded me that I have a lot to do too. Two of the things being, calling the doctor for a copy of the immunization records and the other, finding out where the registration forms are.
I called the school and the doctor and have started the process of getting Zoe into school. My next problem is going to be how am I going to deal with my son, who’s entire world is his sister. I’m a small part of his world but he seems to handle when I leave and go on a trip but whenever he is away from his sister he gets really depressed. Hopefully, I can get him as interested in doing “home work” as his sister is. Then we can practice our letters, shapes, numbers and working with scissors.
Zoe just loves practicing her letters and working on numbers. She can sit for hours just learning and working on these things.
So my goal is that while Zoe is off at Pre-school for 3 hours every couple of days is to get Miles interested in academics a little more, but more than that it’s going to be about having time alone with mommy. I’ll have lots of one on one time with him and I’m really excited about it. I’m also excited to practice shapes and letter recognition. This is the age that Zoe was when she started learning her alphabet.
