I am having an inner battle with myself about enrolling Kane in school. I want him to socialize and learn new things that he may not learn from me, but are we ready for this step? Am I ready? Michael laughs at me and tells me it's not about me and that I need to "cut the cord", but is Kane ready? He still screams if he sees me walk away. I realize school would help with that, but secretly I love that he still needs me so much. (again, I'm making this about me.. sorry)
I mean let's get real... he is only 20 months. I'm not pregnant and don't plan on getting pregnant right away so what would I do while he is at school? Yes, clean and run errands are the obvious, but I have done it for so long with him it's no big deal for me. When we lived in Cincinnati I didn't have any help and it became second nature to me. Am I really holding him back by not putting him in this year? He has 17 years of school that he has to attend so what's the rush with putting him in right away? Michael and I have given up so many things so I can stay home with him, so I guess I feel guilty for putting him in school. I mean, my job is him, right? Moms, what are your opinions about this? Do I need to cut the cord and enroll him this year?
