We picked up the enrollment material for Kindergarten (We want our children to attend a Christian school). There are both full day and half day options available. The full day having the added 'benefit' of the child getting to do hands on activities for the second half of the day.
I thought full day would be what hubby would want - and my tummy clenched as it is very expensive and we do not really have the money right now. I would like at the very minimum to stay-home until K is in school.
Hubby said "We will send her half day. I am sure full day is really for children who have both parents working."
He is so sweet. From the time we were married until the time C was born hubby insisted I would work after the children were born. When C was born and I told him I wanted to stay home. He was smitten with C and couldn't imagine anyone else taking care of her. I thought that would translate to sending her to full day school to get the best.
But it seems his idea of 'the best' has changed. And it is for me to be home as much as possible - even when the girls are in school. He is content with me making just enough to cover school.
I know for some the logical solution would be homeschooling. I would love to - but we just aren't there. Perhaps we never will be. I don't know.
But at the moment it is enough to know that as far as hubby is concerned the best has shifted and it has shifted to the point where my place is here. And for that I am truly grateful!!
