So neither of my kids are school aged yet, and I'm still exploring all the options and styles (both school and homeschool) for education, but the biggest mental barrier for me when I imagine myself possibly homeschooling is how to get some time for myself. I really love time alone, in my house. Going out alone is nice too, but I always have lots of creative projects to work on at home, and I love being able to turn on some music or a movie, and spread out my supplies and make a big creative mess without worrying about my 3 yo getting into things or being in anyone else's way.
Currently, I stay up later than I should most nights in order to get this kind of time. Also, my 3 yo attends a 2 hour a week coop preschool, so there's a few hours each month where I just have the baby to worry about, and he naps and can't crawl to get into stuff yet. Tomorrow my dh is taking the 3yo on the monthly out-of-town shopping trip, which takes most of the day. I'm so excited!
Also of note is that I plan on at least 2 more kids, so I expect the baby/young child chaos will be continuing for a while.
So, how do you get your me time with homeschooled kids?
