Life With Wee People: Pace Yourself...

Life With Wee People: Pace Yourself...

One of my favorite things about Stephen, the Blur Minion is his ability to get comfortable no matter where he finds himself. All he needs is a surface to roll a hot wheels car on, some snack-age and a view to explore.

This is one of the courtyards of Pace University and it also happens to be a fave spot of ours. It's a neat place to read and periodically feed the birds (it's next to the Brooklyn Bridge and directly across the street from City Hall Park).

We have friends here and my shorties love visiting schools where tasty cookies are stashed away to be discovered by the wee people. I've been trying to plant the notion that they should think about college. So far, their idea of higher education consists of mobile computers, iPods, colorful cookies and very heavy books (LOL).

Some people may think having the college conversation with a four year old is jumping the gun.

I think if you present it as an adventure, the wee people may start to pace themselves for the long haul rather than panic in High School.

For parents who find it cost prohibitive there are really cool accredited spots like Ashworth College that don't charge interest, will accept a small down payment and allow the student to select a monthly payment plan they can afford. They are very cool with the Military so let your government peeps know that no matter what anyone says you can get a decent education for you and your loved ones if you pace yourself.

If shorty were old enough to start Ashworth today the ENTIRE FIRST TERM would cost him approximately $1,300 (books included). Got $75 to enroll and $100 a month? You start the moment you register at Ashworth. How cool is that? Very...

I figure little man can do his Associates on-line there and upgrade to Pace later (giving us more time to save lots and lots of money - LOL).

Don't wait until the last minute to plant a fiscal game plan in your wee people's educational agenda. My student loans are no joke... My attorney gal pals claim it's lunch money compared to their law school debts (LOL). Going to an on-line accredited college like Ashworth will give you and your kids a shot at graduating debt free so click on the links and start Googling tuition prices.

The Cleveland Institute of Electronics is mad cool affordable too. I can see Noah the Net Geek doing well at C.I.E. because that kid is computer crazy (LOL).

Mr. Autism and Mr. PDD-NOS like school. If your kids like school you should talk to them about it... Take them for a vist. Sit in their courtyards. Feed the birds and read a book. Get them comfortable with the idea they belong there. ;-)

Very good point.  I have all ready been talking with Maddie about college!  The first two years flew by, I imagine the next 16 will too!

They always say,"it is never to late for anything."  I think this is a great idea to expose children to anything and everything.  Thanks for sharing a great post!

Carolyn, I love that the ever growing tykes can just have FUN wherever they are. I think you have instilled in them that fun is just OK and enjoy life.

Thank you, Krista. :-)

Kim, I know what you mean. Can't wait to see what our kids morph into (LOL). ;-)

Thank you, Lizette. The more they see the more they absorb, so I really enjoy getting out and about with the shorties. :-)

Gary, my kids are getting the hang of that and I am enjoying having a second childhood with them. :-)
