DD will be 2.5 yrs old next week. I am a SAHM and had planned to put her in our church preschool next year. But, DD is showing us a lot that she is ready to be challenged more than I can do for her at home. To top it off, I'm over 25w pregnant and have a c/s scheduled before mid-Feb. I'm so tired and overwhelmed and I can't keep up with DD right now. Our closest family is over 6h away so I don't get much relief until DH gets home from work. I'm worried that if I wait til next spring, DD will feel like the baby came along and she's being pushed out the door. If I wait til next Aug for the new school year, I feel like I may have held her back from her potential to branch out and learn more than what I can give her. So, I'm thinking of starting her the first week of December. Not what I was ready to do at all, but again, I feel like if I wait until after the baby arrives, it will be very hard and too much change at once for DD. Do any of you think I should get her started now or wait until next August for the school year to start?
