Lately I've been so busy working, doing my rehab, and everything else, that I needed Chris to take over some of the serious parenting things going on. After all we say we are co-parents so it was time we acted like that. With two Special Needs children there are always decisions to be made and issues to be solved. I've handled most of this on my own but it was time for Chris to take over half of this.
So two of his first official acts as leader were attending Harm's IEP meetings (which he did great with) two weeks ago on his own. He also decided, with help from educators at the IEP, on a very strict Prep Pre-k instead of doing the Fine Arts route I had wanted. I think I'm okay with it b/c the school is well-equipped to handle special needs kids and they want to take all three children all day (which will be convenient for me).
Still I find the idea of "college prep" for 3-5 year olds hilarious! Seriously? The place is even called College Heights! Chris was so excited that he camped out at 7 am on enrollment morning to get the kids accepted last Saturday. He was the 3rd in line (no way was I going out in the cold). The school's official goal is college preparation. I guess now if the kids can only get into Harvard, but not Yale at least we will have someone to blame.
