I think the fact that you put a lot of thought and consideration into the decisions you make will guarantee that it will work out. Because you will evaluate as you go along and change something if it's not working. Who knows how much growth T could see in the coming months, coupled with gains in speech development, she will be so ready! And she'll have you along the way, if anything gets tough.
There's a little girl in B's class who is just tiny by comparison (B is the tallest). She's a rough and tumble little thing and no one babies her, I know that much. Among peers, I'd bet that T will be an equal. And if the older girls want to dote on her, well - at least she'll have protection!
Good luck - I know it's tough to decide. I think you are exactly right though, that you are going to second-guess every decision with your child's education. I know we have so far!

It goes with the territory, doesn't it, this second-guessing? :)

T. can definitely hold her own--at least with her brother. So I do think she'll be okay. But her smallness also make us all the more protective!
