O’k, today was our first day of school with almost all of our books. We have been doing school for over a month already, but we were just getting back into the schedule and reviewing basic facts & waiting for the books to come.
So, I planned out what all we would do. I had looked over all of the new stuff & figured out how to do it. I had planned out how much time we should do journaling, math, and our other subjects. I had it all worked out so that we should be all done by 1:00. You would have thought this was my first year to do this!!!
Then we actually started our day. I forgot to plan in two important people. My 2 yr old Gracie & 11 m old Sam. You know what happenes when you try to ignore a crying baby to explain a mth lesson? He only cries louder. Do you know what a 2 year old can do if you don’t answer her call of “Mommy”? She can take 50 crayon and break them into pieces & then color all over the wall with them UGHH!!
One time I had Gracie screaming and chunking crayons at Zachary(5yr) and Sam crying and pulling at my shirt(wanting to nurse), Austin asking me about his math, Collin asking me about his Handwriting & Ben telling me that I was maing him do hard stuff too early in the morning.
THIS WAS NOT ON MY SCHEDULE!
The sad part is I think I do this every year. It just takes me a few days to get back into the groove. I think I have a post on here somewhere about what to do with your toddlers. I think I need to go & read it again!
