Moxie Posted September 19, 2012 Share Posted September 19, 2012 This is largely a vent. Sending my kids to school isn't really an option. Private schools cost too much and our public schools aren't great. I'd love some advice if anyone has it!! I try to plan fun school stuff but they all just complain about them or we don't have time to do them. If my kids went to school I'd be able to spend more time with my 3-year-old. We could go to library story time like her older siblings did. Right now she has too much "free time" and she causes trouble. Or watches TV. I could do laundry during the day so evenings would be free for family time. I could clean the house during the day so weekends would be free for family time. I could have some time for the hobbies I love (scrapbooking, mostly). Maybe I'm selfish but I want free time! Having a time that we needed to be out of the house would make us more disciplined. I can make a great schedule on paper (and have MANY times) but we don't follow them. I would have more time to grocery shop and cook so my poor foodie husband would enjoy dinner again. I love to shop, craft and decorate for the holidays. I would have time to do that again. Maybe if I weren't with my kids 24/7, I would be more patient with them and some of their issues. Things aren't horrible here but I see so many ways that they could be so. much. better. I'm a natural perfectionist so doing everything half-@ssed is starting to wear on me.
