We've been deschooling/stealth homeschooling for nearly a month now and I've about had it.
In addition to the cooking I wrote about yesterday, I've also been working on saying yes. Chester decided he wanted a toad, so we researched it and then got him a toad. Toad lasted about four days before we'd lost enough live crickets in Chester's room to convince us feeding him was too much of a challenge. Plus, after Klaus got himself a hamster, Chester decided having an animal that he can hold and play with might be a good idea after all. So we took the toad back to the store. We're still waiting to get Chester a hamster. I want to make sure he still wants one after a month or so.
Then there are play dates and sleepovers, swimming, air hockey, board games, baseball, violin lessons, and next month theater camp, Japanese camp and invention camp (one camp per boy).
My problem is this: I'm tired all the time and by the time DH comes home at night, I've had so many invasions of my personal space from having the boys around all day that I can't stand to have him (DH) anywhere near me. I don't want to be so hooked into be the mother that I don't have anything left for being the wife. :(
