I've come to a crossroad and I'm struggling. The cross in the crossroad is confusing me.
Both the boys went to the same school for about 6 months, until we had issues with Thomas' teacher and their way of doing things, and they, for lack of better words, kicked him out.
We took him from a very strict learning type of school and put him into a Montessori type school and he thrived. He turned into a child we have never seen. He grew in ways that were just beautiful. He went from having a personal nanny, to an in home day care that ended up betraying him, to the strict school to the Montessori school and he made it through it all. For the most part, unscathed.
Christopher is still at the one school, and we have made the decision to not pass him into the teacher's class that Thomas had so many difficulties with. Christopher is my baby, and he's had health issues, he's had speech issues and he thrives on structure. But I sense that he misses his big brother, I sense that he wants to be in the same school as his big brother. But I am worried I am making the wrong decision.
Christopher will join his big brother at the Montessori type school and I am worried. I fear he will have a hard time adjusting. I fear it will not be challenging enough for him as he is learning his ABC's, 123's and he even knows the colors of a Japan flag, the China flag and the Russian Flag.
I fear, I fear, I fear. I won't always be the perfect mom, and I can't always be expected to make the right decisions. But I pray I am making the right choice, for him. I pray that he will thrive and continue to learn and show his intelligence through his creativity.
I hope that the cross at the crossroads is just a over reaction of my overly protective mommying to my baby.
