Quoting Moses.:" I would keep her home. If it isn't really benefiting her then why send her, kwim? It's not like you can't do what you were doing before. And wow, they can't go to school without the flu shot?! "


True...I mean, She likes being around the other kids, But I don't think it's benefiting her the way it can just yet....I mean, I do flash cards with her, ABC charts, she knew all her colors and shapes by 2 years old, I've WORKED with her, and I think this last year of being home with her will benefit her just as much...sure the interaction is important, but I can enroll her in a dance class or something on weekends and I'm sure that would help too.



yeah, they misinformed me. :? They told me she HAD to have it, and I was confused by that....but they gave me a deadline and said she needed it by january 1st if she wanted to come back. I tried, but she kept getting sick (This fall/winter has been hard on her already, 2 colds AND RSV...) so she couldn't get the shots at all 3 appointments. Finally, I called the school and told them, and the lady I spoke to said " Oh, You can choose to be exempt" :roll: So the people who I initially spoke to NEVER gave me the option...I wasn't thrilled about that, believe me.

Yes it did. I never went to day care so it was my only real time to be with other kids. My biggest problem was I hated being away from my mom. The next year I was perfectly fine in pre k.

That's how DD is, we're practically attached at the hip :lol: I've allowed her to be babysat a total of 2 times, by her gram for a few hours, and JUST a few months ago, so she's never really been away from me. I'm sure that might be the issue with her, but it really helps hearing your experience with that- I hope it could be just as successful with DD. :)

I hope so to! Dance class was only like an hour and my mom would just wait in the waiting room. It worked out pretty well.
