Teach where you can…

It’s been an off day…the two biggest helpers (my husband and oldest daughter) are on a mission trip, so I’m manning the helm solo this week.  So far its actually been pretty good!  I find I’m pretty efficient as the lone captain, but it definitely catches up to you!

3/4 of us that are left are feeling slow and under the weather in various ways.  So I have made the executive decision to declare today Pajama day!  All schooling (at least on my part) will take place on mom’s bed.

So, for my fellow “off day” (off week, off month, or even off year) moms out there; I hear you, boo!  Celebrate the learning, even if it’s in pajamas on your bed.  Celebrate that your office is so comfy and that “sick days” aren’t wasted days.

In solidarity – I’m sharing views from the “preschool classroom”.
