So, that photo got me to thinkin'...

For those of you who have homeschooled young ones and older ones...

I know it's never easy, but did it get easier as your children got older? Like, did/do you feel a bit less frazzled with everyone being potty trained, can make their own bowl of cereal, can bathe themselves, focus longer, fluent readers, ok you get the picture lol :-)

Yes and no. In ways it got easier because they can help more and are more independent. At the same time they started asking tougher questions and became more ummm opinionated.

I haven't made it there, yet, but from what I can see, it's going to be great. LOL I try not to look over the fence too much, yet, though, since my youngest is still only 10 months.

I agree w/ Debbie. With my kids being older, they can do a lot more independantly, including helping with the household chores. This means I can spend moe Ine planning and doing CM!

I don't wanna wish my time away with the lil ones, but sometimes I think how nice it'll be when they are more independent. & finished teething :)

 I have to agree with both Debs and Momof3boyz.  For the same reasons as theirs.  The older my kids got/get, I have to keep learning so that I can at least help them somewhat when needed.  And then they ask some of the most difficult, phylisphical, thought provoking questions and you have to be prepared for those since you don't want to give an answer that isn't quite right.

i found it was easier as they got older until high school. Then it got really complex. I think its hard just in a different way.

 It does get easier, but as wubbunny said, it gets more complex with high school, it is still fun though.

Like some of the gals have said I dont want to wish my time away of them being little. But I often day dream about the day there are no more diapers and everyone can read and write! Lol
