@JR03 , it is a long day and I question my choices too. My kids however do enjoy the oosh, if you find a good place then that helps. It's not the same as being home but my dd does do a lot of fun stuff there and they get to play with their friends as well.
Whether you work or not fitting in homework and play (and/or after school activities) can be tricky. I'm shocked at how much ds has got this year - y1. I sent him into school with it half done and a note saying it was too much. He's a bright kid and loved kindy but already his enthusiasm for school is waning so forcing hours of homework on him isn't going to happen. Sorry I'm digressing from OP...
Pregnant for the first-time?
