Homeschool Kinda Life

Who here is homeschooling? 🙋‍♀️


I feel most of the nation was FORCED to "homeschool" at some point during COVID. We or I actually homeschool our 6 year old. We pulled her from public school 3 weeks before our schools shut down for COVID last year. We pulled her for reasons other than COVID. I was debating on pulling her but a final straw happened and that was that. The teacher, teachers assistant and nurse all "forgot" to give ny at the time 5 year old her inhaler before gym class and recess. I found out only because my 5 year old told me. They didn't take her Asthma seriously. I was even told by the nurse that her asthma action plan from MUSC didn't mean anything that they treat all asthma students the same. 


ANYWAYS.... Homeschooling lol 😆 We homeschool. Id be lying if I told yoy I wasn't terrified. Because at 1st I was beyond terrified. Terrified I'd mess her up beyond fixing. I found an amazing support group and leaned on a friend who had been homeschooling her 2 boys for 2 plus years. 


We have some good days and bad days. But all in all we both enjoy it. She is now happy to learn again which she wasn't in public school. She also a year ahead on Math. No, surprise there as I use to enjoy math. Homeschooling is not what people were forced to do during the pandemic. Homeschooling is way more flexible than that. We can do a less at the park. A lesson while her brother is attending his speech therapy. Shoot today we did a lesson while I packages up clothing to ship out. 


Homeschooling is not for everyone, no. But it is something we do and we truly enjoy it.

No Time To Be Sick

I am a mother. A mother of two. A mother who homeschools. A mother who keeps the house. A mother who cooks. A mother who runs her business. A mother who takes the kids to and from speech and gymnastics. I have many thing I do. Many things I do every day to keep my children, dogs, husband and house happy. 

But a mother is not allowed sick days. The past 3 days the children have been sick.  Lastnight my ears started to hurt and down along my jaw. I went to bed thought nothing of it. Today around noon my throat was sore. I fed the children lunch. Left them with my husband and went to urgent care

When I was about 9 years old I got Rheumatic Fever. Basically its when your body gets confused and attacks itself. Its brought on from Strep Throat. I had Aortic Mitral Valve damage done to my heart at the young age of 9. Because of this I have been trained to run to the doctor. Well, I tested positive for Strep today. This is the 2nd time in my entire 32 years I have had Strep. Now what? Do I have more heart damage? Is it normal Strep now? Lots of questions. 

But remeber no time for being sick when your a mom. Rather than being in bed I got to bring my 6 and 2 year old to the doctors for their own Strep test. The 6 year old cried. My 2yr old lol hes a foodie! After his sister got her test he BEGGED for his. He thought they fed her something. Lol He did his test like a champ. He was confused why there was nothing to chew lol 😆  Both their test came back negitive but our 6 year old has an ear infection. 

I get home get set up in bed and sure enough I get the text that her meds are ready. So I throw on some jeans. Leave my sag bags "loose" in my pj top and throw on my jacket. I had to go in because as if having Strep wasn't enough of an inconvenience..... mother nature decided to bless me with her presence. I am now in bed watching How To Get Away With Murder and eating Girl Scout Cookies. 

Judge away.... but this mom is content. Shout out to the moms that do not get sick days or time "off". We got this! Remember one day we will want all of this hot mess life back, when they are off at college.

Potty Training mom life

Naked for Life

Potty Training....

We all go through potty training. Stickers, lollipops, M&Ms, Cheerios. Singing potties, seat attachments, throne potties. EVERYTHING. But nothing really prepares you for your own "adventure" lol It's crazy how different your children can be in every aspect of life. My daughter was potty trained at 18 months old. My son we started at 18 months and he was going but he has a speech delay. A severe speech delay. He couldn't tell us he needed to go. So we stopped. We started back up. He is 90% potty trained.... YUP 90% lol He will go #1 and #2 on his own. But once you added pants or underwear or a pull up to the mix he goes in them. He still hauls his little booty to the potty and sits but doesn't take his underwear or pants, etc off. He is naked on the bottom half all day everyday unless we leave the house of course. I often wonder if this child will go through High School in his birthday suit. Just the lower half of thy suit of course. Do you think they will make an exception on the dress code for him? Asking as a concerned parent. In the meantime pass the wine
