It has been a little over a year since my toddler Izaiah has been at home and out of regular daycare. While I have thoroughly enjoyed the last 14 months having him by my side, we are now settled into our new home and it's time for us to get him on a schedule. The best way for this schedule-free house to get our kid on a schedule is to enroll him in preschool. Three weeks ago, Izaiah started at his new school. I honestly didn't think that there would be any issues. Izaiah does go to church several times a week. He enjoys his friends and teachers there, so this preschool thing would be no big deal, right?WRONG, MOM. It's been a new adventure, with many lessons learned -- here are 7 of the most important ones. - By Molly Thornberg
