I was truly hoping that as JBM got older, I would have more time in the evening. NOT! As of last night, I have decided that I am back in elementary school....the only difference, this time I know what is coming. YES, YES, I know it will only get worse and the issues will only get bigger but, if it is even possible, I have less time now than I did when JBM was a baby and he needed me 24 hours a day.
I also thought that if I was ever going to go back to school, it would be for something fun like interior design.....not basic math, spelling and writing. But you know what? I would not trade this time for anything since I know it is fleeting and we are stuck together for an hour (sometimes more) every day....homework usually ends with some nice conversation. That is the best part.
