The twins did not have preschool yesterday as the schools are closed for the "holiday." (Halloween "just happens" to fall on our state independence day or whatever) I have become quite accustomed to not having to handle all three kids, all day, for two days in a row. It's just about killing me.
It's leaving me to wonder- HEY! Halloween is on MONDAY. And yet the entire school district is taking a four day weekend- none of which falls on Monday. I'm looking around at all these kids playing in the street on a Thursday afternoon and it... just seems so wrong! You grubby kids should all be in school right now! (Instead of loudly playing basketball in the street- making such a racket it wakes up everybody from naps)
Also- JUST WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO WITH THESE KIDS ALL DAY? How did I survive before we started preschool? (three weeks ago- yes, I am aware how ridiculous this sounds)
Question to homeschoolers- WHY? Am I a rotten parent for wanting dedicated, scheduled, absolutely-happening blocks of my day without some (or all) of my children? (Answer: yes)
Hark! I hear children fighting over toys. Joy.
