It is my job to keep your opinion of me balanced. Consider this post the other side of the pendulum.
We did no school today. (Other than the second half of the math lesson Levi was supposed to have completed yesterday. Which had something to do with the above note. I’m such a tyrant.)
The kids were running around outside playing while I huddled on the couch feeling miserable. Luke came in. I told him I was feeling really sick. He sweetly rubbed my cheek and said, ‘Could you work up a picnic for us? And then you could lay back down.’
I put Lola in the bathtub and added some bubbles. She cried. Those things are terrifying, don’t you know?
And then I spent most of afternoon on facebook. And reading Homeschool Ryan Gosling. And laughing. And crying. Especially about the math one. And the 30 minutes of school one. And then I had to re-visit The Well-Trained Mind Forums to re-read this thread. And then I had to make my own contribution (‘cause Ryan Gosling isn’t my cup of tea) instead of making dinner.
And now you know my real world. Some of you may never visit again.
ETA: And then we ate Little Caesars pizza, put the kids to bed early, and watched Cowboys and Aliens. The end.
