Extremely pregnant with a 3 year old is not a good time to be making that type of decision. At the moment you are just caring for a child. Give yourself 18 months and worry about it then. (And go and look at the local school before you decide whether you can't too ;~))

When i say just, i mean "just" as in - you are doing what you would be doing anyway, not as in "not much, only" type of just. If that makes sense.

Yes thats OK for you to say - you are a brilliant HE-er who does stuff with her kids.... *Hyperventilates*

Yeah right.

Did i mention i'm having to do computer cold turkey so i look at my childrens faces more than the screen?

And i don't do anything with the 3 year old. 3 year olds are impossible.

subhan'Allah. way tooooo hard on yrself.
you don't do anything with 3 yr olds - who told you they do!?!!!!!
thanking you muchly for newly aquired goods. jazakAllah khair.
ps: did istikhara abt school and woke up at 9.30am. ha ha ha. (actually *i* was just getting to sleep after wakeful night, but dear children had the decency not to bounce til that time. alhamdulillah.)
so, read up on unschooling or something.
visit the local school.
i can't do school, even though i would like some time out.
we would always be late, and my baby boy would bounce the teacher out the door anyway...lol, sort of!

Yeah, I think everyone has their 'omi god I'm never going to be able to HE' type freakouts.
Go and reread all John Taylor Gatto's stuff and realise he is 'learning by being'.

And if it makes you feel any better I am currently not even having that particular HE freakout....more of a 'will I ever get to give my children my undivided attention?' type freakout as I bounce between feeding, cleaning (well, more damage control really),feeding cooking, feeding and then.....oh yeah the kids look bored what can I do with them that involes only my partial participation....oh nothing GREAT. AARRGGGHHH.

I just don't think he will ever learn anything will me around. State education has made me way too dumb. And I hate books.

How can you hate books?....you just wrote one!!

You are not dumb, anyone who realises what state education has done to them has enough between the ears to make sure it doesn't happen to their own children.

You coming A.W on fri?
