DD will be 4 on the 17th and so begins the big debate between her father and I of where our child will attend school. Her father is and has been since i was pregnant that DD will attend the local Catholic school because, well, "that's where he went." However, he does not attend church and the tuition for a non-Catholic student is OUTRAGEOUS (to me anyway.) DD and I attend church (Baptist) every Sunday like clockwork. Personally, I have no issues with public school and I wouldn't have an issue with Christian schools either, but Catholic....not so much. I have no issues with Catholicism, it's just not something I think should be pushed on my DD when it's not the religion she presently practices. I would place her in pre-k at public school, however, in our area unless the kid is stupid, they don't get to enter Pre-K. Ugh, I could use some advice from you mommas on this.
