Interesting Personality Test just select the picture that speaks to you the most. This one hit me pretty much spot on:
Peaceful Discreet Non Aggressive
You are easy-going yet discreet. You make friends effortlessly, yet enjoy your privacy and independence. You like to get away from it all and be alone from time to time to contemplate the meaning of life and enjoy yourself. You need space, so you escape to beautiful hideaways, but you are not a loner. You are at peace with yourself and the world, and you appreciate life and what this world has to offer.
Today we’re winding down our second week as official homeschoolers. I’ve been enjoying homeschooling immensely, and EBoy’s excitement about learning has me excited to find new things to teach him. I’ve been contemplating starting a homeschooling blog but can’t decide if I will do it here or on a personal website that I can share with family (my family knows nothing of this blog), and while I never say anything bad about anyone I’m just not certain that I want to share it with them in case I do ever need to vent. This could also be the gateway to me to blog about African-American children’s books like I have been wanting to do for a couple of years now.
I do have one little complication with homeschooling. His name would be EBaby. As loveable and sweet as he can be, he’s definitely practicing his terrible twos with a vengance. Yesterday we were working on math when he decided that the sea creatures we were using to practice counting looked more like projectile missiles for target practice. Our only saving grace is that EBaby does still do a morning nap so I get him to sleep right as we’re starting our school lesson which gives us almost 2 hours. I know he’s not going to do 2 naps a day for forever though so I’ve really got to figure out how on earth to balance both of them. I’ve tried toys, books, and letting him destroy whatever we are working on but nothing has worked so far. He’s communicating and understanding a lot more now so hopefully he’ll settle down enough to at least let us work without insisting on destroying whatever he can get his little hands on.
My favorite part of homeschooling is EBoy’s excitement. He hugs me, tells me I’m his very best Mommy and he’s so glad we are doing school. He definitely knows how to make his Mommy’s heart smile.
