Homeschool Advantage #1

One of the best aspects of homeschooling is the flexibility. We are taking this entire week off from school.  We all need a break and the house needs a good cleaning before our Thanksgiving festivities.  This is a great week to take a break as most of our extra activities are also cancelled for the week.  

Baby Wingnut and I stayed in our nice, warm, toasty bed until 8:30 this morning. Skoshi A is still in bed as I write (she has always been my "sleeper').  Nutcracker rehearsals were a killer this weekend and we are all worn out.  Baby Wingnut seems to be nursing a little cold, runny nose and congestion.  I am convinced, there is nothing better for a cold than to stay in bed, stay warm, and get a little more rest, and that is exactly what we did this morning.  I'm planning on taking a little nap with him this afternoon for an extra dose.

I'm off to savor my morning cup of Joe (sweet and extra hot) and to make up a list of those things that have really been neglected the last several months.  Homeschool rocks!

This reminds me . . . I need to talk to you about kids sleeping in your bed and the child sleeping through the night.

Baby A sleeps in our bed more than not and wakes up a bunch at night.

Yep. They do that but I find that I don't wake up fully. I get baby to latch on and I'm able to fall right back to sleep. My kids would all nurse at least 1/2 a dozen times a night. I honestly do not think everyone is cut out for this. If Wingnut weren't on board with me on it, it would never work out as this tends to disturb his sleep to a small extent.

We haven't used a crib at all with our last three. I think I've had more sleep this way than I did getting up and nursing and then going back to bed. In the end they all ended up in our bed at some point in the night.

(((SIGH))) ... I definitely miss some of those homeschooling perks.
