My daughter is going to experience Preschool just like her friends before going into kindergarten. I wasn’t sure if she would ever go into pre-k because of how expensive they are but recently my school district got a FREE PRESCHOOL this year.
My daughter is excited and nervous. She felt left out the last year or so because her friends have attended Prschool. She begged me to go and kept saying, I’m too little, which wasn’t true at all. She was the age to go into Preschool but the cost of schools didn’t seem realistic. It would hurt us financially rather than help because I would be going back to work to pretty much pay for it. I could have gotten a full-time job and did aftercare but the thing is my hubby’s job doesn’t have set hours so that idea didn’t work out either. I’m grateful for spending the time with my daughter. I loved watching her grow up and know everything she knows I taught her these last 4 1/2 years. It’s my biggest accomplishment. The library helped her learn to sit still and listen to another adult. I can’t thank the library enough for everything these last few years.
But it’s time for my daughter to go into school and leave the net. I’m beyond grateful my school district got funding for free preschool. I have to admit I was a little worried about applying because my hubby makes too much for the income requirements of Head Start. The risk made me anxious but my hubby and I decided you should just apply and see what happens. Well, I’m so glad we did now because SHE GOT IN!!!!
I believe my Mom and Dad helped with this opportunity. My Mom must have noticed from heaven how her granddaughter really wanted to go and made it happen. I know this may seem far fetched for some people but I truly believe they helped and send us luck from heaven.
As for me, I have no idea what I want to do with my time. I want to go back to work but I have a time frame to work with since I’m going to be the one driving to and picking up my daughter from preschool. I want something that’s flexible, pay taxes, works with school hours, and possibly a few work from home days. At some point, I want to get my masters in library science so I can be a school librarian. I have to study for the GRE, so I will probably do that when the house is quiet. I’m not sure where I want to apply at all. I still have time to look around and figure out exactly what I want to do.
My hubby and I do want another kid but we’re not sure when we’ll have another one. It would be a lot easier for me mentally to have another now so I have mange my time and take naps. I’m not sure if this year is the best idea though because we want to move into a bigger house before another happens if possible. Time will tell, I guess.
I’m excited to see where this new chapter takes us. It’s a blessing to have the opportunity for my daughter and myself.
Here’s to a new chapter in the books!
