Remote learning, and hybrid learning, and homeschooling, has been a challenge for all of us who found ourselves accidentally in charge of our kids’ education over the past year.
We’re doing our best, learning as we go, and trying not to murder anyone in the process – and these 9 posts are going to go a long way toward making you laugh instead of end up in prison.
9. Just mind your business in general.
We’re all doing our best.
If you see my kid on zoom in the same clothes he’s been wearing the past five days mind your business our homeschool has a uniform.

8. Thank goodness for technology.
We would all be pretty lost otherwise.
Homeschooling is just standing behind your kid checking their math on your phone calculator

7. She’s always so keen on helping.
Seems like it’s worth a try.
“Alexa, homeschool the children.”

6. Poor loves must have been starving the entire time.
How will they ever survive when they go back?!
Hard to imagine how my kids were ever able to survive regular school days without 23 snacks.

5. Anything can be a lesson if you want it to be.
And we definitely want it to be on trash day.

4. We all have our trials.
Some rougher than others.
Please say a prayer for my 8 year old son, he has to write 4 sentences.

3. She’d better pay more attention to their homework.
Otherwise you’re all gonna have to do it over again.
I bought a 20 Kg bag of flour for $13.99 because it was a good deal. I then had to order a $50 storage container big enough to hold it so that the flour wouldn't spoil.
I guess what I'm saying is that I might not be the right person to homeschool my children.#COVID19

2. Would they pull that at school?
The answer is definitely…maybe.

1. Let’s focus on being kind instead.
Or literally anything else that sounds helpful.
"I WANT THE BEST EDUCATION FOR MY CHILDREN"
"You know, I think I'm ok with my kids being dumb"

We can see the light at the end of the tunnel, friends. Don’t lose it now. Only a few more months.
And you might be reading this after we’re all back to school. And if so… congrats!
