This morning, one of my children wrote this sentence for a spelling exercise that was supposed to include the word “mood”……….

“My mom is in a bad mood today.”

If you’re a home homeschooling mom, would you consider this a bad thing? Or maybe convicting in a humbling kind of way?

Or would it just reiterate to you that the thought you’ve had a few times over the years……that public school could, on very few occasions, actually be BETTER for your kids…..might actually be valid because you’re 43 years old now and maybe things are just beginning to change on the hormone front and maybe that makes it harder to handle when 12-Year-Old can’t grasp the concept of plural possessives and 4-Year-Old is hiding out in the bathroom because he hit his older brother and you’re irritated that now you have to go deal with THAT situation when all you REALLY want to do is sit and cry while eating ice cream with chocolate syrup and sprinkles on top?

Or is that just me?

    it’s just you…and the thousands of moms Todd Wilson wrote “The Lies Homeschooling Moms Believe” for. But you’re right, this aging thing really stinks and is what makes it even harder. We’re no spring chickens yet we still have to keep up with little ones!

    But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.
    Isaiah 40:30-31 Thank you Lord!!!

    (my daughter’s account is signed on and I don’t know what to do about that b/c I’m a computer doofus–this is from Kim, your fellow 43 yr old)

    P.S. stay away from that ice cream, syrup and sprinkles!!! 🙂 the crying’s ok tho–that’s healing.

    NO!!! It’s not just you! I wanna do that way too often, and I’ve only got 2 little ones. I’d say you’re totally entitled to it since you have 10 children!!! 😉 Lol!
