Yesterday was our first day back to school. I think that I over expected a little. I was really hoping that all of the work would be finished and my dear sweet children would look at me and say, Mother, do you have any more work we can do? But no, I did not hear those words. Instead I only heard the words, “Can I wait until dad gets home to do math?” or ” I just don’t understand it.” My children have decided their new profession in life will be to write a book on how to get out of doing schoolwork. But I am proud to say that one of the girls finished all of her work, and with very little help and even did a good job. Can you guess which one it was? It was dd#2. Most of you know that she has ADD and ADHD and has trouble with learning, but yesterday she was on a roll. She really tries so hard. Dd#1 , well, she just wants to hire someone to do the work for her.
All in all I have to say that it was a good day. Any day that is spent with my children is always a good day.
