Hey, I have a post up on the blog of TODAYMoms! They’re doing a series about home school, and asked me to write a short piece on . . . burrrrrrrrrn ouuuuuut. It starts like this:
What does it take to be a great home-schooler? Passion, energy, creativity, high ideals and whole-hearted devotion to your kids.
What does it take to spoil home-schooling? Passion, energy, creativity, high ideals and whole-hearted devotion to your kids.
OK, not always. But many home-schooling moms find themselves burned out after a few years, exhausted by the very things that made the whole enterprise possible.
Welcome, TODAYMom moms — and to my regular readers, all four of you, please come and take a look. I can’t tell you how pleased I am that my path to fortune and glory will be paved with tales of excruciating personal failure. Stay tuned for the rest in the series, which will explain why I am also okay with losing the battle against carpet stains, the size of my hips, the amount of hair on my upper lip, and that funky smell coming from under the couch.
