Homeschooling is one of the loneliest jobs on the planet.
Parenting is hard enough, but we had to go and make the job 24/7. No breaks, no coming up for air.
The only thing that keeps me going sometimes is the comfort of knowing I’m not alone in my worries or struggles. That’s probably the main reason why I won’t let this blog die already! Every once in a while I’ll get a message from someone thanking me for being honest about homeschooling.
I love those emails and messages. They remind me why I loved this blogging thing so much-so many years ago-the sense of community and comfort you get when you find your people. Even if they are behind the computer screen!
Many moons ago I attempted to host a guest blogger series here. (Ha!) The series didn’t last long, but the posts are still here and they’re all awesome, so…
Without further ado, I give you an ultimate round up of homeschool mom confessions. Grab a cup of coffee, sit back, and take comfort in knowing you’re not alone on this journey!
In no particular order. Not even alphabetically, because I’m that lazy.
