It’s not painless

Distance learning should be getting easier for us. It’s been over 365 days since the kids have been full time. You’d think we’d know how to do this type of thing painlessly. It’s not painless. It’s actually torture at this point for me to try to get the kids to do what they need to do when they need to do it.

Just today my daughter broke down in tears when she realized she had a bad grade in reading. It went straight to death and destruction instead of just being disappointed about the grade. The funniest thing was that her teacher just said that she’d take redos for her assignments and average the first grade and the second grade. For a kid who has been on honor roll the last two years this is her saving grace, but the depression she felt with her grades being down really was an overreaction.

How are your kiddos handling the stress of distance learning? I hope they aren’t going off the deep end when something doesn’t go just right.

I’m Patty Gordon, a 40+ year old school lunch lady married to a crane mechanic. Our days are anything but normal as he works “construction worker hours” and I take care of our two elementary school aged kids, Chihuahua Mr Biggs, Pitbull Cali, and French Bulldog MooMoo. I blogged a few years ago under different names but have landed with the 365MomMe name this time around. The term 365MomMe comes from the idea that I’m a mom and I’m me 365 days a year. Kids call me Mommy but I see myself as MomMe.
