Mama Lesson #1,3206



March 1, 2006

Lisa – 30
Loganville, GA
4 Children- 3 Girls (11) (4) (18 Mo) 1 Boy (5)

We've had some beautiful weather lately and the kids have enjoyed every minute of it. I remember as a kid I used to love playing outside. I was a little 'tomboy', that's what I was called. I used to climb trees and fences. I would play basketball and touch football because growing up in Brooklyn we didn't have much grass to play in. I used to love racing. We would do relay racing and one on one racing and some how I would always win or be one of the best.

It's funny, that's how I like to look at my life today. Win or be one of the best in everything I do. With so much to do I've been wondering lately on how can I be the best at it all. How can I always win?

Today however I realized that I can't always win and be the best. I realized that I can just be my best.

Mothering-Absolutely the most rewarding job there is, although I may not see those
rewards until years and years and years later. For now I at times feel unappreciated and even over-looked. Yet, I wouldn't have it any other way.
Home Schooling-Courage, courage, and more courage. I don't think the question of "are they getting all that they need"? ever goes away, but experience tells me they must be because they surprise me all the time with how much they know.
Home Based Business-Now there's a challenge that I still haven't been able to figure out how I even fit it in. I've learned to do what I can and just keep moving.
Keep Moving!

Sometimes you win by losing. You're doing great. Keep courage on the homeschooling. I'm sure they're fine. Mine always learned things I wasn't even trying to teach. :)

I home-schooled my daughter when she had medical problems as a youngster and she always impressed me with what she picked up without me even trying. Kids... They amaze you like that. Smiles.

I agree with upwords...you seem to be doing a wonderful job. Don't fear..the appreciation comes when they get much older. Youth is truly wasted on the young.

I JUST had this conversation with my husband!

I think we have to know that we will not know exactly how we did [as parents] until the end. But I can bet if we do our best, correct the wheel if it starts veering off track, apologize when we're wrong and insist when we're right, the end will be beautiful and more than justify up for the means.

here's what a woman told me when i had the same nagging doubts about if my child was learning everything she needed when we were homeschooling.

she said, "don't worry. from birth til puberty children are wired to learn. you can't stop 'em. from puberty on.. they're wired to mate."

well, that's a different worry!

That's GOOD Janine! I agree. and as to that last point, let's pray that they have learned enough to hold back the tide until their like....30!
