Did that really happen????

Oh, the day we had yesterday....the first time I've had SERIOUS thoughts about putting Sweet Pea 1 in school. It was crazy! I'm just chalking it up to starting back after a break. We haven't had this bad a day in I don't know WHEN! SP1 was being sassy, SP2 was being sassy; SP1 was being whiney about school work, about piano practice, about the dinner I cooked. It just seemed like ALL the training and the rules we've set up were just THROWN out the window. SP1 ended up with "homework" too....more work assigned to him for being disobedient and also the work he didn't finish within our normal time frame.

But today was another day....and it was NOTHING like yesterday. We had a VERY pleasant day and it was a day that I was very glad to say that we homeschool.

PLEASE don't let too many days like Monday come around again.

I'm not saying you did wrong...I'm just offering this up as thought...for both of us!

Is it a good idea to discipline with schoolwork? Does that send the message that schoolwork is "bad thing?"

Hmmm...I wonder?
