The path can be rough at times
I'm going through a rough patch with my kids and our homeschooling. The going has gotten tough, so the tough get ... cranky? tired? ... creative?
These times come and go, and I know what I really need to do is shake our routine up, put in more fun, change the schedule, or something like that. But I'm too tired to be creative right now, and I wish they would just ... just conform to the routine we have right now and stop making waves.
Of course, that's not going to happen. My children are not exactly great at conforming or not complaining to me when they are unhappy (that's not to say they can't cope in social situations where they have to conform for others - they can - but with me they are going to complain eventually).
Big breath. In. Out. Ok - I can do this.
