I am eating humble pie today. A pretty large helping.
Sometimes I have said or at least thought that I would never do something. Like dying my hair, for instance. Now my hair has been most of the shades of chestnut, mocha and auburn brown that Walmart stocks. So much for that never.
Sometimes I don't have the audacity to say I'll never do something, but I think it. Like before I had kids... I thought I would never be caught in a grocery store with a tantrum throwing toddler. Not my own anyway. Ha! Right. Snicker.
Today I am undoing another never.
I am homeschooling my eldest.
I've said many times that it would never happen. I've said in a public forum that Josh and I could never survive homeschooling. There are witnesses who probably remember this promise.
Yet here I am with a full week of Language Arts, Math, Social Science, and Science lesson plans staring at me.
It's not that I don't like teaching... I have a multiple subject credential.
It's not that I don't like my kids... I love 'em.
I've just always been much better at teaching other people's kids.
But it's what Josh needs right now, so I'm going to un-never it to my best ablility. I have repented. Forward march!
I should probably never say never again...
