Sunday Night Blues

Thank you to Two Writing Teachers for hosting the March Slice of Life Story Challenge.

Molly, Zach and Annie always said they hated having a mom who was a teacher. I don't think they really hated it, and even if they did, it's worked out well for them as adults.
 A got a taste of it today. At 7:00 pm we discovered that her homework wasn't done. I am pretty sure both of us would have chosen to get into our pjs and dive into a good book, but we took the high road and got to work. I have to say I enjoyed reading her essay and talking to her about her thinking. It ended up being a nice evening after all.

  1. I find that as my kids get older, I feel more guilty for teaching because my attention more and more, and I feel my school work gets pushed aside.

  3. I think that my kids have loved me entering the teaching field- they feel as though I can answer everything for them these days!

  6. I can relate- to the mom who is a teacher part, and the Sunday night blues... and reading essays. My girls are in college and they are still sending their essays for me to read. Happy Monday. And hope your spring break comes quickly. Mine ends tonight.

  7. I was helping one of my granddaughters with some math homework earlier today. (5th grade) She didn't understand when I was trying to explain how to multiply decimals. She got frustrated and complained to her mom that she thought I was doing it wrong. Sigh.... I can't win. I'm glad your homework session turned out better, Julie. :-) ~JudyK

  8. Sunday nights can be the best....or the worst depending on how much other stuff I have gotten done earlier in the weekend.

  9. Ah, the old - homework isn't done scenario. I'm wondering if you have forgotten little tidbits like this until they happen again with the girls? I'm also relieved my house isn't the only house this happens in.

  11. Any individual above 15 years and 6 months of age may enroll in driver education courses. On completion of the course, a practice permit may be obtained from the driver's license division that allows driving with a licensed parent, guardian or spouse. Subsequently, the person has to visit a driver's license office to show proof of registration for a driver's education course. This is followed by a written test. Each course must include instruction in motor vehicle insurance and the effect of drugs and alcohol on an operator of a motor vehicle.http://www.thesisexample.info/
