As most people know I have been homeschooling the triplets and Griffin since September. I have done my best to teach them the basics of what they will need to start pre-school. I know I started this with the intent of only doing it a year but as that time grows slowly to an end I am panicking.
Emerson and Maxim are still receiving speech therapy. At a recent evaluation Emerson was found to still have a significant delay while Maxim has just a slight delay. So at their CPSE review meeting this month it was the suggestion of the committee that they enter Pre-K in the Fall and continue speech services. OH NO!!!!! Am I ready????? Yes, I said "I". I really think it's me that's not emotionally ready to watch my babies go off and be taught by strangers. When Austin went to preschool I sat in the parking lot and cried for 2 1/2 hours until he was done!I know, I know...I'm an over attached mother! I must cut the cord, it just seems we are so quick to have are children grow up and be adults. I knew this day was coming, but I am in serious panic mode. In less then 6 months I will be left with just one child at home while 4 of my boys go off to broaden their horizon and get an education. SO SAD!!!!!
By the way, I am panicking a full 6 months before this will actually take place and they will only be going for 2 1/2 hours a day. Just imagine when it's Griffins turn! I will need a straight jacket!
