Bye-Bye Toddler Years

Today my youngest child turned 4 and our household officially said bye-bye to the toddler years. What's crazy is that he is in preschool and is even eligible to attend Kindergarten this September. How does a kid go from toddler to preschool to kindergartener in such a quick span?

After very quick deliberation we decided to not put our son forward a year. Instead we'll wait for him to enter kindergarten as a 5 year old instead of a 4 year old. I want him to have another year of being a preschooler before he becomes a kindergartener. It's not that I am afraid of my baby growing up but I just don't want him to rush through each age. So, I'm going to comfortably settle in and enjoy having only 1 preschooler and 1 kindergartener in the house.

Happy 4th Birthday Little Man!


  1. What a cutie!! Happy 4th b-day!! I totally agree with you on keeping him back, four is super young to be in Kindergarten :-)

  2. Happy Birthday! If I wasn't planning to homeschool, I would keep my little miss back too. Four is too young... I started school when I was four and I was the youngest in class (and I hated it)!
