I couldn't do it either.
The kids, not so much.
The DH who has been home since Christmas is starting to drive me bonkers though :) He only works in the office three days a week and it's not looking good for next week, ugh.
It would be bad for my children's health for me to homeschool. No way!
It is very hard sometimes and yes it drives me crazy sometimes.
BUT it is the best thing for my kids and the homeschool community here is wonderful!
Example: I spent 2 hours with my daughter trying to figure out the linear equation and graphing stuff. So freaking hard! I am a college graduate and should know this stuff. I am going to have to have my husband look at it with her tomorrow. What a pain!
LOL I was always that mom who said they would never homeschool.
Then we hit last year where DS2 was repeating Kindy for the second time which led to him being evaluated for learning issues. County psychologist starts the meeting with have you ever considered medicating him for ADHD, ummm, no. I might have considered it had she bothered to spend time with him first. Turns out after all the testing is said and done, he is profoundly gifted. But again, the push for medication. In the meantime, I spoke with our ped who disagreed with her diagnosis and when I informed them that his ped disagreed, they told me I didn't have the right kind of ped o.O
DS1 is my kid who is sick more than he is well. We gave him the choice over the summer to homeschool or stay with traditional school. He voted for the latter but within three weeks was on pred for a major asthma flare. We pulled him out and he hasn't been sick since. This is the longest time he has been well since he was born. (And yes, we do things with a homeschool group and alone). He is putting on weight finally and has outgrown his clothes - he has been FTT since 4mo old, he is now on the BMI chart!!
So yes, in our case it was for our children's health LOL
But I am sending Miss Obstinate 3yo to preschool and Kindy for her health and mine ;)

Quoting Anonymous: I couldn't/wouldn't do it, either. My daughter would miss out on too many things that only an actual school can provide.
