My mother's always right. Well, almost always right. And that's OK, because it usually is about important stuff.
It is worth waiting for .... (fill in the blank with just about anything.) It is not worth pushing it.
I am SO glad that I waited to start Girl in preschool until now. She is ready. She just is. This morning she might as well have said, SEE YA! when I dropped her off. When I picked her up, her face was covered with dirt. She couldn't wait to show me all the stuff on her hook, Look what I did! Look what I made! And of course, she had to describe the snacks they had today.
It fills me with joy to see both of my children loving school and the stimulation it provides. God knows, the stimulation I provide these days is half-baked, at best. Kind of like my cooking come to think of it....
