Working Momma, I know you are often tired and worn out. If you are like me, the vast majority of your homeschooling mom friends are full time moms. That’s ok, there is no contest here. We each need to do what God has called us to do for our family.
But, friend, if you are anything like me you find yourself sometimes frustrated. My child does homework at 6:30 am while someone else’s child may not start until 9 am- and your child is of the age they realize the difference.
Or my biggest struggle is we cannot go on that field trip or fun group outing yet again because my schedule cannot be changed for the week due to some meeting or appointment. I let mom guilt get the best of me- especially when my child knows about the trip I cannot make work.
Let me encourage you- it’s just fine to have a schedule to meet the needs of your family. Your child will forget about that fun trip or have time for a different activity because your schedule looks different. God has called each of us to serve our families- but it’s going to look different for all of us regardless if we work full time, part time or stay home full time. So, if you see a fellow homeschooling mom doing something you wish you had the time to do, do not despair- just do your very best. It’s alright to be on a different schedule and not keep up with the rest of the homeschooling world.
