He'll have, what, 2 years of pre-school?

Poor kid.

You're joking, right? Pre-school is the best time ever in a kid's life! Lots of kids to play with, all the toys you can imagine, book time, floor time, outdoor time. Would that ALL of school was so awesome!
Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
I wish, I wish he’d go away...

:huh:  He was super excited to go.  Really, he just wants to play with kids his own age.  He plays with his little brother, but there's only so much you can do with a 14 month old.

Meri - no tears on this end.  I'll see how mommy did later on.

You are confusing me with different words for the same things.

My kids go to day care, it breaks my heart every time but I do recognize that it's better for development.

Amma and Pop Pop were informed that they are, in fact, old and decrepit.

Tonight, I went with my old man to see a CFL game.  :Canuck:

My wife, while at home with the boys, reported that Timmy (after his first day of pre-school) played with mommy and his little brother by having them play School.  So he would read them a story, give them a snack, and make them have quiet time.  :lol:

You just want three teen exorcists to expel your sexually transmitted demons.

your sexually transmitted demons.

It's not nice to call his kids that, no matter how accurate.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.

So the 6 year old had her first soccer game today.
Apparently it had to be reinforced that, even though you aren't allowed to touch the ball with your hands it also means you can't use them as weapons, either.

Real conversation between Jeremy and Riley:

Riley: Jeremy, your friend Tyler is hot! :perv:
Jeremy: No.
Ri: :huh:
Jeremy: Just no.
Ri: No what?!
Jeremy: You cannot date my friends. Ever.
Ri: :blink: Why not?
Jeremy: :mellow:
Ri: :mad:
Jeremy: Well, let me put it like this. Would you be okay with my dating one of your friends?
Ri: :o :yuk:
Jeremy: :mellow:
Ri:  :o :ph34r: Okay. Yeah, no dating each other's friends.
Jeremy: :yes:

My sister would never let me date her friends, either.  She wanted to keep them as friends.
