After 6 days of homeschooling, I feel like we’re finding our groove. Joe has declared his love for going to school at home, Leila is determined to put in just as much work as Joe, and I’m having more fun than I thought possible.
So why am I anxious?
As well as everything is going, my mind starts to wonder if I’m doing the right thing. I had a wonderful public school experience. What if my kids are missing out by staying home? They aren’t seeing their friends every day. Will they resent me for it? Am I screwing up my kids?
Could it be that my worries are the same as always, just shifted to new circumstances? Could it be that moms are destined to be anxious about every single decision they make in the lives of their children?
Maybe you’re not like that. Maybe you make a decision, stick with it, and calmly go about your life. I’ve never met a mom like you, but I’m sure you exist somewhere.
They’re loving homeschool. I love teaching them. This is going well.
It’s time to stop worrying and start enjoying.
