I don't want to......

 What do you do on the days, if you have them, when you, as mom and teacher, just don't want to do anything schoolwise?

When I'm really, really just not feeling like school I either; find things that my kids can do themselves with minimal interaction from me or I try and get them involved in something fun I want to do. I know that if I get burnt out, that my kids will suffer for it. When I'm feeling anti-school, I give myself a break and ease my workload as much as I can, while still letting my kids satisfy their desire to be busy and learn. If I'm not feeling well, or up to any activities, then they can color, lace, do puzzles, watch shows, use their leap-readers & books.... I keep a rotating variety of things on hand for when I'm needing some time off.

Then we don't. We might just read all day or watch educational type movies all day. Or just go to the library, cook, or go to the park.....

Yesterday my feminine issues were at their peak and I just wanted to curl up with my Nook and a heating pad so I put ds on Jumpstart on the comp. I know... not good but he enjoyed it and I cuddled w/ my dd. My 3 yo dd felt that she needed to care for me. hehe!
