I am sure others here can agree that the first day back to school for the kids is a magical one for the parent/s that works from home. I am in total bliss and while I have many things to catch up on, I am really looking forward to a day that is not being interrupted every ten minutes.
I always laugh this time of year when they come out with all the funny back to school videos of parents celebrating. My daughter is homeschooled, so I haven’t experienced the joy of a quiet day with no interruptions. I can’t even imagine what that would be like!
I agree, I homeschool my kids as well, so I haven’t had much peace and quiet in the last year. I don’t know if I could go back to being excited about them not being at home now that we have done it for a whole year. I really enjoy having them home and know that in a few years I will have so much peace and quiet I don’t know what I will do with it all.
My kids just went back to school this week and it has been so quiet here. I have managed to get a lot of things done that I have been putting off all summer, but I really miss them. I wish that I could homeschool them as well, but I don’t think I could manage all that added stress.
I used to be one of those parents that jumped for joy when the kids went back to school! I loved those commercials Centra. Back to school meant time for me to do what was needed around the house and spend time on my own. The house would be really quiet, no one yelling mom every 10 minutes.
