:lol: I don't really think I suck, but I am having a really hard time doing what I want to be doing with my 2nd grader. Things were going reasonably well for a while, but now with a non-napping, high needs 10 month old as well as a needy 3yo and a whiny 5yo, I just cannot seem to make myself try to do what I want to do. This year I kind of cobbled together a Waldorf 2nd grade, which is very mama-intensive. I really really am drawn to Waldorf and it seems very good for my kids BUT I am feeling burnt out. I'm wondering if I should try to find something that he can do more independently next year. If I were to go that route, what would you recommend? Certainly nothing would be completely independent, but I am talking not spending much of the evening before planning and the entire lesson time at his side. The other thing I am thinking is that if we do stay with Waldorf, I will be buying a curriculum for next year, so perhaps that will help me a good bit. Really though, I think it will still be a lot of work. Maybe it is just normal at this time of year to be burnt out and looking for a change? I am still totally in love with homeschooling, and Noah is too. I just want to feel a little more competent at it. Help?
