A h/schooling friend recently sent me this the article below on BuzzFeed...I thought it was hilarious.
One of the more challenging aspects of h/schooling at times is being with your children every moment of every day. As much as I adore my children, my personality sits on the border between introversion and extraversion, which to me means that although I need time with people, I also need time by myself. And time by myself is very hard to come by...one of the harder parts of h/schooling. I have Thursday evenings out and to myself, pretty much every week, which I love, but otherwise I'm with the kids 24/7 (and yes, even usually at nighttime because there's almost always a kid sleeping in our room). And I have to note, as I have before, that I have very loud children (particularly #3 and #2, in that order)...very. very. loud.
So for all you parents out there who h/school your children, enjoy the vacation highlights below. I could relate to most of them, but not really to three of them: #6 (because my kids haven't napped for years); #10 (because even when my kids are in the bathroom, usually the door's open and they're talking/singing/yelling about some thing or another); and to #13 (because our mail box is right outside the front door.
My favourites, and the ones I can relate most to are: #1 (ahh....yes...doesn't happen often because I have two early risers, but when it does...); #2 (I laughed at this because I've never voiced how much I enjoy pumping gas for this reason): #9 (so true...it's amazing how one can stretch this out!); and #14 (happens every night around 9:30/9:45pm)
