Yeah I sent him to kindergarten, altho I didn't want to, but there was some circumstances with court involved and they forced me to enroll kid in school. Which thankfully he liked right away, because of the social aspect of it. So after kindergarten we travelled in the summers. It was difficult for me, to get used to the around the school schedule but for the kid it workedWhat up? My life now is travelling in an RV for work from jobsite to jobsite with a partner and 2-year old. Riding in the RV is way easier with the kid than riding in a car, we have her carseat in the front seat and she loves the view from the "bus". It has it's challenges, keeping the plumbing, electrical, heat, A/C, and automotive systems of an RV or bus conversion running are all important but when you have a kid and a job it's pretty darn pertinent to not have one of them break.
Probably going to try to be settled down by the time she starts kindergarten. One, it's free childcare, and two, far bigger, i think it's important to be able to grow social relationships and friends outside of your weirdo parents.
How did it work with you Marmar- did you homeschool or just get off road for the summer?
I agree with whoever said that it's no harder than just having a 2-year old in general. It's pretty darn time-consuming in any case and there is a lot of screaming kid and lost sleep and logistical challenges but I don't feel the logistical challenges are much harder in the RV than they were in a crappy apt in the hood.
I do feel it gives kids a perspective that is a great opportunity, a depth of perspective and an understanding of faraway places, cultural differences, geography, etc. Kids that never get to leave their hometown are deprived IMHO
