This week is Thanksgiving, which means that about 8 seconds after we collectively finish our slices of pumpkin pie, we will be launched into the “holiday season” like riders on an Elon Musk hyperloop train.
Before we know it, we will be lying in our beds Christmas night, wondering what happened, how we ate 16 cinnamon rolls in one day and what toy is making that beeping-whirring noise.
(Not a blender or an iron or a vacuum. Basically, if you can buy it at a hardware store, it’s not a present.)
So a few things I’d like to share today:
- This season is going to call for a LOT of balance and flexibility.
People often ask how to find balance when you are a busy homeschool mom, and what I’ve learned is that perfect balance is very hard to attain. (It is the winged eyeliner of this life.)
But flexibility is different – flexibility allows you to switch gears with grace. It allows you to wrap gifts in the morning, and hit the Christmas concert in the afternoon, without feeling like you “should” be doing other things the whole time.
I wrote more about how balance and flexibility combine in this post at Simple Homeschool.
