My eldest starts kindergarten next year. As in – this fall!
Seems like this is going to be one of those moments where we get to make some choices about our life and how we are going to live it. Again.
Kindergarten is only half a day. And a full day of school ends at 3.
A full day of work ends at 5:15 for me. now.
They offer after care for kindergarten that goes til 6pm.
Now I get to decide if I want to use it. Or if I will shorten my work day.
It’s funny but I have not felt a big need to work shorter hours while my kids were in daycare. But school seems to be changing that. I want to be there when she gets off school. I want to help with homework and hear about her day.
So maybe not this year, (or maybe this year) but soon I will need to make a change. Our family will need to make a change.
And I don’t think that changing my hours will be a problem for my job or my boss, but they are not, nor have they ever been, my primary concern.
I am feeling fiercely mother today.
I can’t believe she’s old enough for school!!!!
