I don’t have the patience to homeschool my kids !
If I had a dollar every time someone said that to me, I would be one rich Mama bear.
Wanna know a secret? I don’t have the patience either.
Are you surprised ? I am just like any other Mom trying to navigate this high and holy calling of motherhood.
Homeschooling my tribe of boys has been the BIGGEST
blessing and some days
curse of my life.
We have aha moments were my son will truly grasp a new Math concept,
and we have terrible meltdowns over Adjectives.
I am constantly second guessing my abilities, decisions and if I’m royally screwing up my kids – but doesn’t that sound like every Mom’s internal battle if we are being honest with ourselves ? Yes, deciding to homeschool is a monumental task and yes, some days I think I am absoltuley crazy – but there is so much beauty in the chaos.
I am no better than you,
I struggle immensely with every meltdown, tough lesson,
and interruption that comes our way throughout the day.
As a third year homeschool mama I am no veteran at this, but I can share some tips that will help you along your journey.
To the homeschool Mama,
breathe your babies in deep. Give yourself the Grace you deserve and know that you are not alone in this journey.
To the people who think they don’t have the patience to do what I do,
Hey ! me neither, I lose it sometimes, I yell and think I can’t do this. I know that the Lord has put this on my heart for now and will press on relying heavily on Him, other homeschool Mama friends and Sonlight Curriculum .
