if you're not reading her yet, you're missing out.
so i'm reading dooce's blog today, and she's talking about sending her daughter to preschool, and how they hyped it up and up and up so as to make the transition as easy as possible.
and i remember how EAGER #2 son was to go to school. we didn't have to hype it; he was so anxious, we had to jump through hoops for six months to get him let in a year early. because he could not wait another year, no he could not. we DID talk about learning to read regularly, however (which they do in kindergarten here, so yup, my son learned to read at age 4!).
and then he came home from school every day for probably the first week, but it felt like the first month, exasperated b/c "I didn't learn to read again TODAY!" he thought it was an overnight process, and it probably seems like one in retrospect.
life was simpler then, when what we wanted was going to happen when we wanted it, wasn't it?
