Can I just say I'm tired of homework? Does that make me a bad mom? Sometimes I feel like I've been in school forever. I know it's a good thing to keep exercising my brain, but does it count if I take 5th grade math over and over and over...?
Did I tell you the Dog Walker is taking an Intro to Disabilities class? He is busy reading me the chapter on Autism. It's pretty interesting except that he stops about every 30 seconds and says, "Was I like that?" It's driving me a little crazy!
I don't mean to be ornery, really I don't. It's just there are some nights when I would like to come home from a busy day of errands and activities and just head off to bed with my Sweetie. He gets up at dark-thirty for work and often leaves before I'm awake at 6:30 to get the kids up. I never get to bed before he has been snoozing for a couple of hours. I think I saw him for about 30 minutes today. We spent the time talking about the kids and their activities and a quick run-down on both of our days and he was off.
During the day the Dog Walker works on math and discussions and things he does on his own with me just doing a final check before submission. At night he reads his textbooks aloud to me and we discuss the assignments before he does them. Last night I got a whole chapter of Economics and tonight we are reading from his Special Ed book.
He is thinking maybe he would like to work with Special Needs kids in some way. I'm just glad that he is finally finding something he might like to do. I don't know if he will ever
finish a 4-year degree, but for now he is scheduled to graduate with his AS degree next fall.
That's a lot more late nights...
