Okay here's the deal. I run a home daycare as well as have 4 kids of my own AND I do it all as a single momma. As much as I usually enjoy doing things on a whim and not having to stick to a rigid schedule, I think I need one!!! I have 6 kids right now, but may be getting another one soon. Anyway, they are split into thre ages. I have two newborns ages 2 montsh and 4 months. They are obviously not being schooled yet but are also not on a regular routine yet. Not together I mean. I am hoping to eventually get them both there so they will at least possibly nap at the same time. (one is FF and eats regularly but mine is BFing and eats whenever...but no issues with that as i can sling him and go about my day) I have a two year old and three year old whom i preschool and then a 4 and 6 year odl both of whom are kindergarten. (My youngets wanst to be a part of school with his brother and his brother is a bit behind so I am beginning him with kindergarten level for now. Anyway, hwo do I DO this???? Shoudl I try to split it up so maybe the older kids can have a hand in helping school the younger ones, like Montessori. I kind of like that idea.Or should I try sitting them all down together so I am not spending all day doing school? I am just feeling a TAD overwhelmed by all of this. Especially being a single mum I also need time to keep the house in order and being on a limited budget I make our foods from scratch, etc... It seems everything I do takes triple the amount of time and i need some ideas to help it all run smoothly.
