Hi all! I'm Charlotte, and I'm the mom of 4 children, ages 10, 6, 5, and 2 months. My 10 year old is in public school for the last year and I'm homeschooling my 6 & 5 year old, both in kindergarten. I had my daughter in December, and getting back into the swing of things has been so hard since her birth. I hate to admit this, but I've only been "schooling" them 1ish days a week. Some weeks I get in two, but most only one. At first I was cutting myself slack because, hey, I'd had a baby. But now I just can't find my motivation. She's sleeping well and on a good schedule, I just can't find the motivation. Any advice on getting things accomplished with an infant? I know they're not behind, so i'm not too worried about what they've missed, but if I continue this way, they'll all be in public school next year, which won't be good. My 6 year old has ADHD and my 5 year old has Asperger's, and public school just doesnt work for them. I love teaching them, I just have to get back to doing it.
Sorry for the rambling, just needed to get it out, I suppose.
Sorry for any errors, nursing while typing. :)
