It is to be expected I know, but man she is stomping on my last nerve today. It is a beautiful day outside and she hates her composition class. “I helped you with your outline. It is your job to put that down, in complete sentences, on paper.” “Can’t I take a break now?” “NO!” This too shall pass. I just keep reminding myself how lucky I am to be able to home-school her and that I need to be thankful for these frustrating moments. I could be missing out on it all. 14 months ago

than the mother of a thirty year old. I can’t ground him. I can’t tell him what he can do and who he can hang with. I can’t tell him you have to do this or that… All I can do is give my best advice and hold my tongue when he doesn’t follow it. Thankfully, I CAN tell him, Don’t talk to me in that tone of voice or I don’t have to talk to you. Get a grip before it gets a grip on you and for goodness sake, be thankful for what you have. Your dreams? They will always be just that if you do not make them a reality. Last but not least, being happy with what you have is as important as dreaming those big dreams. 20 months ago
“Never pray for patience, you’ll only get opportunities to practice it.” comes to mind, lol. I have had lots of them in the last three weeks of home-schooling sweet Sarahbear. I must admit that it was a challenge at first but am happy to report that I am getting better. Even if I have to ask her to stop talking, shut my mouth and just breathe for a minute it seems to be getting better. Our communication is improving daily and I am optimistic for the future. 22 months ago
