Homeschooling: My Temporary Moment of Insanity

So you all have been reading my last few posts right?

So you know that we've been out of school now for about a month?

And you also know that it hasn't been going so well?

Yeah, that about explains it.

Homeschooling? Hell no!

It sounded nice. It still does. Maybe I'll do it for Chica. But at the stage we're at now, there's just no way.

My entire day is spent keeping Taz away from Chica. There is absolutely no room for learning. All my wonderful plans of recreating my glorious childhood summers have been washed away by the bipolar tsunami.

I wanted to live at the beach this summer. Turns out Taz doesn't even like the beach. Well, he likes it when it's not hot or crowded. And I'm not taking him to the beach at 10pm.

All Taz really wants to do in life is ride his powerwheels car, hunt for worms, and fill water balloons.

So how do I explain my original plan of homeschooling Taz in the fall?

I plead temporary insanity.


  1. I can understand that. You guys need some regular time away from each other and it might help him to have a regular schedule. We are not homeschooling in the fall. My son wants to go back to regular school as well so we are going to give it a whirl.

  2. LOL! I feel your pain. I could never imagine homeschooling my son, even though it was once an idea years ago. In fact, it's hard just playing with my son during the summer. I can’t wait for school to start again.

  3. After what my son went through in "regular" school I thought about homeschooling but that would never happen with this whirlwind! Luckily he loves the school he is in now. He would go 7 days a week if he could. They also have a summer program which he is excited about going to. We will only have him during the day for August this year.
