Right now I wear at least three hats: editor, mother, teacher . . . in seemingly random order depending on the hour and the day.
I started homeschooling my two children this month. So far, it’s been great. We have fun together, the pace is natural, and there is plenty of time for play and life to happen. Language arts have been a big focus, natch, with lots of fairy tales and nursery rhymes and poetry.
Then the other half of the day, I work on editing. Or at night, or on weekends, or wherever I can fit it. It’s funny but I don’t really mind working a few hours on the weekends most of the time; in fact, it’s sort of nice to have the same thing every day. Creature of habit, I guess.
