I'm 24, and been engaged for about two months. Yesterday, we discovered that I was pregnant. We're still living with my parents and looking for our own place, and he is finishing school.
I am really scared to death even though this was a wanted occurrance (not tried for but not prevented, either) and I was wondering if anyone has any advice for me?
Also, a side note, does anyone know anything about Montessori schooling and the cost thereof? I'm trying to plan ahead and I found a Montessori infants program that accepts babies as young as 6 weeks old and wondered about the cost of such things.
Congrats, first off, and I hope that everything works well for you both. On the subject of Montessori, I had never heard of one until last month when my friend and I were talking and she said she would like to send her son who is ready for kindergarten next year to one. (Run on sentence, I know ) She said that it would be kind of pricey, but she felt worth it. They dont' have that sort of thing around here; we live in a rural community; but she described it to me and I thought it sounded awesome! I'm sure that tuitions are different in every place; I would search the web for costs in your area.
You can do a search for Montessori in your area. My fil wanted to put our girls in Montessori but it's up there in price, and the waiting list around here is quite a while (a couple of years). Plus I don't know if it's like this everywhere or not, but the two that are here the kiddos only go until they are in 5th grade, after that they either go to public or another private school. Here's a link where you can find a lot of helpful information about the program, including finding one near you. http://www.montessori.org/
