About 80% of homeschooling really sucks. I am a terrible kindergarten teacher. My patience and empathy are at record lows. In fact, as I write this, Mackenzie is having a complete and utter meltdown because I won’t let her run around the block by herself. (She’s six.)

Juggling homeschool, with work, with a house that never stays clean…I feel like screaming or crying most of the time. What saves me is knowing that probably every household is like this is some capacity, so I know I’m not alone in my misery.

On a positive note, there have been some really good moments as well. Including this.

And this, where Kenzie beatboxes one of her homeschool assignments.

Our school has really done a great job providing educational content, and I’m thankful for that. I just need help focusing on the wins, and letting the losses go.


Distracted, working mom seeking short escapes from a hectic life via quick crafts and fast food. Sure, she could meditate, after she cleans the house.
