Mommy Confessions: No Sick Time

This week's confession really happened last week. I think I am the only one who had a problem with what I did, but I still need to confess.

I Confess . . .

I had recently started a Kindergartner-in-Training program that I designed to prepare my son for kindergarten in the fall. The first day didn't go so well, but the second day went great! So I had high expections for Day 3, but it just didn't happen. I wasn't feeling well and my son seemed to be distracted by other things that day. I did suggest to him to do some of the activities on his chart, but he ended up doing none. I feel guilty because I could have tried harder, not by forcing him, but by being more encouraging and enthusiastic. I just felt like I was going to keel over. I don't know how school teachers and homeschooling parents do it. They have to keep up their enthusiasm no matter what is going on with themselves mentally or physically. I feel like I really dropped the ball. He did a little better the next two days, but not much better, so I feel like all of a sudden the bar has been lowered because of that one day.
