We have an energetic five year old boy. He loved pretend play, making movies, any kind of art and playing outdoors. He is very communicative and mature beyond his years but very silly at the same time. I am an attorney who work out of the house a lot. My husband is an entrepreneur and has a lot more flexibility. He is also to pick up from school a lot but there are week where he needs to travel and we need after a school care when he has travel weeks or client meetings that require him to be out of the house after school.
