Does that sound like bad parenting advice? Don't write me if it does. It might be, but my husband and I already agree that in this case, we stand behind it. Let me set the stage.

Do CWs make routine visits to daycare/school?

Their CW just said that she will need to stop by their school this week. Sure, no problem. But I just wondered why now, since she never did in all of the 8 months they've been with us. Maybe she just never got around to it before? But that's a long time not to go if it's required....
