      It happens every day here too. I just send him to the bathroom before we start everyday.


    3. SaDonna


      ahaha ... I have the same thing. She just 'disappears' into the bathroom when it's time to get going! WTH!?!?


    4. BridgeTea


      Well, of course it takes at least 20 minutes. Look how old the feller is! LOL. Yeah, I've got one hear with great timing, also. Right when I'm geared up, off she goes.

  5. DS8 is going to NYC with DH tomorrow,so we are spending the afternoon together, watching romantic-y movies and eating popcorn on the couch.

  6. why did i ever think this online latin class would be LESS work for me? Just helping him keep track of all the assignments is a full time job!

      It gets easier. Just give it time. Meanwhile, stock up on chocolates. :)

    4. Halcyon


      It's really hard, actually. I have already missed one "deadline" due to not understanding the format. My son isn't happy. But keeping him on task and NOT taking a day off ever is tough. Very intense.


  7. Feeling overwhelmed and stressed this morning.

    1. Plum


      Me too! Hope it gets better! :)

      Thx, chris, but really, i need to be able to function, at least minimally after my runs! Today was a joke.


    3. Critterfixer


      You will get stronger. Don't know about 8 weeks, but you do get stronger with each run.



      Just keep up some exercise. You know if you are ready!

  14. DS10 taking Explore this morning. He is very relaxed. Me, OTOH.....

      Hang in there, mom! I'm glad to hear there are other young ones-I never hear of anyone taking the EXPLORE before 5th grade here, so that's been a worry about my 8 yr old taking it.

    3. ErinE


      Good luck to him!

    4. Element


      He's going to do great!

  15. Oh my. Starting school late, at 10:30, means ENDING school...at 4:30. I am exhausted, more exhausted than my kids, I think.

    1. ....


      Oh, no! Those days are rough. Tomorrow will be better.

    2. mlbuchina


      I have gotten stuck in a cycle of late starts. I feel your pain.

  16. Now i know why public school moms think they can't homeschool...homework is HELL!

      When my kids were in ps they took every spare moment at school and on the bus to get their homework complete. They rarely had the 2 hours homework parents complain about.

  17. there is nothing better than being home alone....love my kids, but man, i love quiet too!!!

    1. jenL


      Can I come join you? I promise I will not talk. It's been one of those days here.
