Well I have 3 kids, they are 5 yrs, 3yrs-and 1 1/2yrs. DH and I agreed before we got married that I would be a SAHM. I LOVE being home with my kids and feel like they are more emotionally balanced and bonded with both Dh and I. Also they have very high self esteems but now we are at the age of schooling and my DH really wants me to homeschool them, I would love to in some ways but I just don't think I could teach 3 kids in 3 diff grades. I always thought I would stay at home with my kids and then at school age send them off to school so i could do my housework, clear my head, ACTUALLY accomplish a WHOLE checklist and volunteer at there classes. I have talked to DH (and MIL who is a homeschooling fan) many times about this and we have still not come to a conclusion. I have expressed how I don't think i can handle it and how I already have days of almost pulling my hair out (the younger 2 are energetic WILD boys) both DH and MIL always respond with you wont be doing it alone and we will help you. As sweet of intentions as they have both DH and MIL never help..... with anything except maybe giving me a tap on the shoulder when the baby poops. Dh works a 50 to 60 hour work week and then comes home and thinks he should be left alone to relax. He has never done chores or dishes or laundry or bathing kids and I am ok with that, It is the job I chose when I chose to be a SAHM I just never even thought about it being that ways until they graduated and moved out of my house. I feel like since they are my job that i should get to have more say then I do in this choice. I guess I have 2 questions. If you had this battle how did you win/lose? Or is anyone homeschooling 3 kids in 3 diff grades? Rowdy boys and all?
