So, after looking at 5 preschools trying to figure out where to send Jackson this fall, I've finally decided! It was exhausting, but we're new in town, so I really felt like I had to sit in on each preschool and see for myself which one he would fit best in, instead of just listening to recommendations. Of course it happened to be the first one I saw, sigh. I actually think it's the first one I found while googling way back before we moved. (They do gardening, ECO green certified, phonics, and a bit of Spanish, all which I loved.) 3 mornings a week, 7:30ish-12.
There are 3 teachers, he'll be in the youngest class and they help with potty training. So if he's not completely trained by August, that's okay! Which, we had high hopes that he'd be trained, but of course he's going to give us a run for our money. Yesterday morning he ran and shut himself in the pantry (one of his favorite pooping spots) and I asked him right away if he wanted to go to the potty instead and have ice cream if he went there, and he said, "No thank you, please leave me alone." Ha.
So, I'm going to pick up his immunization record today to bring in which led me to the question I always have. Is it ever okay anymore to leave your kid in the car? I'm not talking about big shopping trips and leaving the kid in the car, but the other day I had to drop off a check and could literally see the desk where I had to drop it off from the car. Or today, I already called the doctors office and they said they would have it ready to pick up at the desk, and the office is like a house where you park right in front. But I thought there would probably be some people who frown on it and think I was horrible. What's your feeling on it? I'm totally curious. I feel guilty even though I know the few times I've done it, were safe times.
