glucose test done!

So now I wait. They will call in a few days if there is a problem, otherwise no news is good news they said. However now I feel like could just curl up and sleep. Im SO exhausted! Def having a sugar crash. and sOO much to do today. I can't believe we are registering DS for pk! (Pray he's uncooperative!! We have already been told he isnt going to qualify however if they can't get the "data" they need.. he willg et put in)

Why wouldn't he qualify?

he's too advanced. and both of his parents have steady jobs.... which supposedly means we can afford to put him into a private daycare. (which we looked into in case he doesnt make it in and its going to be over 5000 to put him in) which we CANT afford

I was wondering why he wouldn't qualify too, but that makes sense. Most of the pre schools that I've looked at have always cost around $100 a month... but that's just preschool, not the all day, everyday sort of thing which is probably what you need, right? And I thought $100 a month was too much...

I hope the glucose test goes well for you!

I emailed the pk teacher and she said he scored 13 out of 20 points so he won't qualify developmentally. So unless the hearing and vision get him in we are out Sad He "failed" the hearing because he was uncooperative, and the vision is showing he has an astigmatism in his right eye.... between that and asthma/alelrgies I hope he gets in! Based on what is available in our area he would have to be in a different daycare center (which where he is now is 80$ for 4 days a week ) so if he doesnt get in we have to switch his daycare to the one tht offers prek, pay 500 abotu a month and then put hte baby in a DIFF daycare. HE SO needs to get in.. the paperwork asked waht the bring home income is BEFORE deductions. that's hardly fair! You arent counting what is actually coming home! not to mention factoring in the mortgage and car payments etc. that deduct from the take home. it currently looks as if we can afford private pk no problem... but when you pull out everythign they take BEFORE I even see hte check, then the house and car payments we totally cant afford it. GRRRR

Now that DD is 3 we pay $600 a month for full time. When she was an infant it was $850 a month. I'm not sure how we're going to afford two in daycare. At least it's only for 1 year and 3 months! DD will start kindergarten just over a year after I got back after maternity leave.

we have a intergrated preschool in 2 of the public schools here for preschool for half days. its free its basically first come first serve basis DS got put it and its the best thing i ever did, he's learned so much this school year and it makes me more confident that he'll do fantastic in kindergarten in september

Yep, things like this are ALWAYS based on income before deductions. How much you choose to spend on a mortgage and car payments are "somewhat" your choice. I do say somewhat, because obviously in certain areas housing costs more and such, but you always have a choice in which neighborhood you choose to live in, how new your house is, and how big it is. Also, you always have a choice in how new a vehicle you buy and what features it has... that's why those type of things are not factored in. And yes, they base it on income before deductions because our tax code is already based on an adjusted type system to account for the cost of basic needs for all people (not saying it's "fair", but that's how it is). I must admit that I feel cheated sometimes that they take into account before deductions income too... I kind of feel like the $500 I pay in health insurance should not be "counted" or the money we contribute to the 401K... sigh, but again, those are all choices that we personally make on how to spend our money!!
