Get Your Fetus into Preschool

If you're knocked up or even thinking about it, it might be time to get on the childcare bandwagon.

An article in the Wall Street Journal reports on the growing trend of barely pregnant parents who are already applying to in-demand daycare centers. In fact, one couple called the school to let them know they were "trying" and wanted to get the ball rolling. Another family told the daycare they were expecting before sharing it with family.

Is this insane or just good advance planning?

Not only is it insane but when you get your child into the preschool (trust me I’ve been there) you will have surrounded yourself with the most unlikeable group of women to roam the earth.

Relax. They’re kids. Skipping preschool might even be fun.

Also, schools change quickly, it might suck by the time you get in.

That is insane. No wonder children are the way they are. Parents aren’t even giving their children a chance to be kids because they have to grow up to fast .

The movie Baby Boom has a hilarious scene with this topic. The mother says that if her son doesn’t get into the right preschool then basically he can forget an IVY league education. Neuroses for sure.
