Old fashion play, school interviews, NY, dentist

Last week Igor's nursery school teacher handed out an NPR article for us to read about old fashion play. I was fascinated by how play has changed over the last 40 years. I'm also interested to see how long Igor can stand without moving (a self regulation test). Check it out!

This weekend I had the stomach flu so I'm really behind in just about everything. (I think tomorrow I will be in freak out mode). In a few days we will be going to New York to visit Rob's sister. We will drive half way and take the train the rest of the way. Igor is sooo excited about taking the train. He is sharing the news with anyone who will listen.

Today I went to an open house for a private school just outside of town. Yes, I know we bought a house in town for the wonderful and highly rated school district.... but I have been thinking about Igor and what he really needs to be successful in school. The more time I spend at the elementary school on speech days, the more I wonder if the school is the best place for Igor. So, I am on the fence. Rob is awesome about my exploration of schools and fence sitting. He listens and lets me sit on the fence looking at the different grass on each side. This is a process for me so he is letting me process it in my mind before we talk about it. I'm sure the decision is set in his mind but he knows I need to think about it for a while. Okay, no time to ponder this any further today, I need to start working on my list of things to do!

I have a consult with another dentist this week. I hope this will be the dentist I will have a long term relationship with (you know, a tooth relationship)! I really want to cross this off my list.
