They're baaaaaack!

The kids are back! The kids are back!

This morning sees us frantically cutting and pasting to finish our mid-term break projects before the teacher sees. Oh yeah . . . I am the teacher!

The conflict between Mommy and teacher is often interesting and frequently funny - at least in our school.

"Madison, do you think your teacher will like your project?" I enquire mischievously.
"Of course, Mom!" (rolls eyes)
"Why?" I ask innocently. "Is she a lot like me?"
Madison giggles. Silly mommy!

I wonder if others find this distinction as easy? I think this basic ability to be both Mom and teacher is at the core of a successful homeschool - or boatschool as the case may be :) it's not always easy but it is always worth it.
