How do you homeschool AND work at home, THAT is the question!
Not to mention all of the other Mom (or Dad) stuff we need to do in a day like making meals, picking up and cleaning, running kids everywhere, doing errands or grocery shopping, ahhhhhh!
So as a new school year begins, I'd love more tips and advice from other work-at-home Moms, especially if you work full time hours like I do, on how to homeschool and work at home, without pulling my hair out.
By the way yes, I do know that our children and their education are both more important than making money (they'll only be young once, blah blah blah, that goes through my brain enough, believe me!) — but surely you all know how expensive college and braces and home repairs are, to name a few!
I definitely need your advice on keeping a good balance.
I've gotten better as the years go on — see the posts I linked to below for more about tips and tricks I've learned over time. My own biggest tip is getting up early before the kids do (I let them sleep in) and getting a good handle on my work that way, but it's never “finished”. You'd think I'd have learned that by now and gotten okay with it…NOPE. (Have you seen this post? The Courage to Rest.)
So there must be more you've learned over the years that you could share — I can always use more help in this area, can't we all?!
