    You are doing exactly what I want to do! I have a 3YO boy and am starting junior year BSN program. My husband thinks it is a pipe dream, but I really want to homeschool my guy! How is this working out for you?

    I homeschooled my older three children in order to teach them to read properly and to lessen the impact of peer pressure. I then put them in a private school until junior high.

    I now have a 3 year old and am homeschooling - nothing formal. 3 year olds are not hard to teach. They are so open to new experiences and things come up all day that bring you opportunities to teach in a casual way.

    It doesn't take that much time and is, for me, well worth it.

    Deb is doing a great job while working NIGHTS per diem.

    Being in school is a special challenge because when you come home you bring school with you (studying). When I come home, I leave work at work.

    I also work part-time. I know I can safely say I will NEVER work full-time again.

    It certainly cannot hurt anything to give homeschooling a try. Your child is only 3. Not much you can do to hurt him by trying.

    Now - Deb . .. you need to weigh in here.

    Jnette - p.s. Since I go to work at 2:45 a.m. can I be considered a "night shifter"??? :chuckle

    It's going very well. If you want a boatload of websites and information regarding homeschooling PM me or just ask here. Happy to help.

    sorry for the thread hijack, jnette!

    I could say SOOO much but I already hijacked Jnette's thread enough, rofl. And yes Homeschooling toddlers/preschoolers is majorly easy. Just take their lead. .....but then the same can be said of homeschoolers of ALL ages. Anyhow let me know if more info is needed. I have lots and am learning more each day....

Have a great holiday everyone. (My cards are on the way) sorry.

    WOW! Jnette, you are really doing a great job with Paint Shop Pro. I have that program too and love to play with it.

    That is a simply delicious Christmas Card, thank you for remember us nightshifters.

    Jnette, I don't think I have ever been so touched. Please tell me you are a day shifter that actually appreciates what night shift does. If not that is ok it is still a very kind and thoughtful gesture. Thank you.
