I recently started a regular “school” schedule with my son. It is still very much like playschool but we are keeping a routine of two days a week and doing some structured activities for a few minutes at a time. While I don’t believe in pushing young children into formal academics, I do see the value in learning activities and in developing the attention span. The decision to start homeschool preschool was a rather quick one, literally one day we weren’t, and the next day we were!
When I was pregnant, I was scared out of my mind at the thought of delivering a baby. This fear was always there but it kicked in to overdrive somewhere around 30 weeks gestation. It was so bad that when people would ask me if I was “excited”, I couldn’t even bring myself to say something like, “I’m excited to hold my baby.” Find out the three things I did to overcome my fear of giving birth!
