Granted, it's not for everyone. For onesies, not everyone can get their hands on 4 kids under the age of 6 on short notice. And that part really is imperative. I've been on the "3 kids that you educate at home and plus I also have a job" diet, and let me tell you it's just not the same.
So lately, I'm stressed out. And crazy busy. And I never knew life could be this difficult or this awesome.
But for reals.
I do like the school time stuff. I like the reading and the teaching and I handled the Problem of the 21 Month Old by turning on some old school Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Which made me feel like he's really getting an education too. The more you know.
Anyway, the first couple of days have gone pretty well. 1st Grade Child keeps telling me how amazing this all is. Kindergarten Child is less enthusiastic, but she was won over, at least momentarily, by a Shake-Out-The-Grumpies funtivity followed by dancing our hearts out to some classical musica. The Preschooler, lastly, has mixed feelings. Or, positive feelings and a short attention span. Something like that.
I wanted to share a few of our back to school picks because aaaaaaw, but of course, there is one child conspicuously missing. I should talk too much about how she looked, but I will say this this: If any local Comissioners need to send a signal light into the sky, there would be not one, but two respondents from this home. Except of course we have a pretty firm 8pm bedtime here. So sorry, Gotham-Visalia.
Hasn't forgotten how to write her name. Summer win.
Little man wanted his picture taken too. And I did because his face makes the sun shine.
Seriously? These guys. Come on.
Once again, I'm being instructed that it's bedtime. Happy almost Friday, Y'all! First weekend of the year!!
