So I hope yall had a great labor day. I did! I just wanted to post a little update on me, and my 'moving' and ds's 'school' drama. I know Ann asked in the DYK thread a while ago about the move and I never got back to her. To recap I was offered a short term lease in our old neighborhood with a fully furnished apt, but our cost of living would have almost doubled. We were also offered to rent dh's aunt's house after the lease was up (dream house!) Well the aunt decided to stay in NY a few years longer to watch the kids grow up. So we would have had to move again next summer :( Then ds's room developed a leak so we knew we HAD to move since it requires a lot of repairs instead of a patch and fix. Aaah! I started looking online and noticed a 3 br in OUR building was listed. Sooooo......
We r moving upstairs to a 3 br (i have 2 now) and a better view of nyc. We're actually paying THIS months rent on the cheaper apt, moving next week, and we get October for FREE! Happy birthday to me. PLUS we still get all the furniture in Abuelitas apartment. Yay pottery barn! And flat screens! I am super busy picking out paint and accessories and packing stuff up. I will definitely try and keep up with the board, but I might not get to wb as much as I'd like. But I will still keep yall in my thoughts!
As for ds, we have decided to home school him till 2nd grade. Right now, since his birthday is in Nov and their cut off is October 1st, he is only eligible for the combined 2 & 3 yr old day care instead of 4 yr old pre k. And it would continue until we could have him evaluated in grade 2 when the age requirement is met if your birthday falls within a specific calendar year. Silly? I know. Cuz then he'd skip a grade based solely on age, lose his friends, etc. I don't mean to sound rude but He is way too advanced to be put in the 2 & 3 year old program, I felt awful pawning him off there just so I could work. So my MIL has agreed to watch him 3 days a week so I can work. And she just retired from teaching in June, so I know we will be able to home school him effectively.
Thanks so much for reading this ladies. I will be busy this month but I will keep up as much as possible. I hope to see a ton of sticky bfp's! Good Luck and Baby Dust girls!
