Re: How long to take off?
Congratulations! I'm due any day now. I'm planning to take off about a month, but I'm also planning to play it by ear. If the new baby transition goes smoothly, we'll probably start back up much sooner. I'm also assuming that it will probably be a hit or miss thing for several weeks or even a few months. Some days we may do school because everyone, including baby, is cooperating and some days not. My only formal schooler is almost 7 and I have twins who are 4 and twins who are 2.
I think you can play it by ear and see what you feel comfortable with. I don't think there is any reason not to school Monday if you feel up to it. It's your homeschool. So, handle it however you feel most comfortable.
