How We Homeschool With A Toddler v.2

Now this only works if you have a willing big sister.
The Prince is lucky.
He has three big sisters. All willing.
Well, most of the time. {grin}
Homeschooling with a busy toddler is not
for the non-caffeinated.
It is a challenge to keep him occupied and happy.

Homeschooling with a toddler means lots of
after-school surprises, like finding cd's jammed
in the crack between the wall and the trim.
Matchbox cars exploring gravity in the toilet.
Puddles of water, well, anywhere.

But . . .

If Princess #3's interest in and ability to catch on
is any indication, more is caught
than taught.
And that right there, makes me grit me teeth,
pull out my *special* matchbox car retrieval tongs,
and just keep on.

Learning some fractions with biggest sis,
while holding littlest big sis' kitty cat.
