& out the other side

Since Christmas CJ has been a new man.  We still have our moments, sometimes often, but something has changed.  A few months ago I had the saddest day when I was leaving the house & I thought ‘this just isn’t fun anymore’ it was hard work to do anything, stay at home, get dressed, get ready, go out, go to sleep, whatever.  I always felt like crying & like I had done something to cause the behaviour.  Lately the fun & joy have returned, everyday is fun again!


So after getting through the toughest patch of parenting I’ve faced yet & realising not only can I cope but once again I love taking care of my son… everything changes.  We have a new housekeeper,  this was going to free me up a bit to focus more on the bubs & forget about the house & to study.  This year I’ll be doing 2 Massey papers, working on my LLL accreditation & a DONA (doulas of north america) course.  Then this morning I got a call from the Montessori nursery/kindy to say there is a place for CJ  starting next month.  So I am overwhelmed today, to school or not to school.

The pros – *it is very hard to get a place in ANY school/kindy here & this is the only one I feel comfortable with.  *He might love it.  * He can stay there for KG1 & 2 so no rush into ‘big school’.

The cons – *I’m not sue I am ready & wonder if he is too young.  *I’m not sure he’s ready.  *It’s bloody expensive.

This year is bringing changes. It feels new.
