Any 3 year olds out there?

Where are all the kids this summer? Especially the 3 year olds?

We enrolled in Music Together, again, and the other kids are all babies -- like, crawlers. We started Music Together at 18 months, which I thought was pretty young. My son has loved it, and at 3 seems to be the perfect age: he sings, he knows the words, he claps with some semblance of rhythm, he plays the various instruments. He doesn't seem to notice he's by far the biggest kid in the class. The teacher assures me that he's not too old, but... my 3 month old seems to fit in better than my 3 year old.

Then his parents-day-out program has lost all its 3 year olds, too. Lots of 2 year olds, but he's again the biggest kid there. Today I got a call, he's feeling tired, can you come get him? Are all the parents-day-out programs shifting over, as the 3 year olds get ready to head to preschool?

Even the pool seems empty of 3 year olds. Lots of toddlers, but no kids his age.

I'm beginning to feel like we're in some sort of twilight zone. Like all the 3 year olds are in some fun and fabulous summer camp that we missed out on. I've heard once your kid reaches 4, it's all about summer camps. Where are you all?

    the same exact thing is happening at our parents day out school! all the 3 year olds are dropping out... since we aren't going to a 5 day a week preschool, we're sticking in the class until they kick us out at age 4... but i'm worried our daughter won't like hanging out with all the "little kids!?!?!" yikes!
