Have you ever had one of those days? Your kids are climbing the walls (or refrigerators)! I should’ve expected it, but of course I didn’t. My husband’s master’s class for this semester is ending this week, I am now photo editing for 2 wedding photographers (which normally doesn’t pose a problem, but apparently everyone wants a fall wedding), I’m a procrastinater and waited till the last-minute to do our Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes, I have a party tomorrow night and I’m trying to homeschool with a 2 and 3-year-old who have been pushing buttons all week. Today, I just had to stop and pray for help, wisdom and discernment. I need help scheduling my time.
There are a few things that I know: photo editing will slow down after this month, I need get things done right away, it’s only one party, and the kids have off days, too. But, one of the things I need advice for is, how do you homeschool with 3 kids, 3 and under? Do you have a schedule that works for you that you would like to share? What are you doing with your little ones? How do you teach the older child when you have little ones? My oldest is 7, she has more independent work this year, but I feel like I’m being pulled in all directions and not being able to have quality time with each child. I am so thankful to be able to stay home and homeschool, I want them to enjoy it too.
Please share what has worked for you. Not only will it help me, but it will encourage other moms as well.
