I’ve always loved the idea of home schooling. Having no early mornings for school runs and being able to spend time as a family doing the things we loved whilst educating and growing my daughters. But then we have school holidays, and they remind me exactly why I don’t and would never go down that route.
There’s something wrong with P1 behaviour wise. I’m absolutely 100% sure of it. The school aren’t quite on that page because apparently children can’t just switch off if they have a behaviour problem. In other words P1 is behaved at school and an absolutely crazy, hyper nightmare at home.
I always really look forward to having some time out. I do so much during the term time weekdays that it’s my sort of holiday too. Lots of pyjama days and films, baking and walks in the nature trail. But the reality of it is that put all three children in the same house for any longer than a few days at a time then all hell breaks loose. They start off totally revelling in each other’s company and end up with days like Sunday when I feel like I can’t breathe and want to run out the house in pjs.
But today it’s back to school. P2 was technically back at nursery yesterday but today it’s all back to normal. Gymboree is back open, Moo Music starts and routines start getting back to normal. I can breathe again. It’s a lovely feeling if I’m honest and although I think I’d prefer a day at home in my pjs, I adore being busy now and seeing the girls occupied and happy makes life so much easier too.
Are you happy that school is back on or would you like a few more days off of the school run?
