Common Cold HellI have to say, nothing puts a damper on my homeschooling mama style than being too stuffy and sore throated to read to my kids. We just did NOTHING today. OK, I did nothing, the kids have been hard at work in the backyard or, in The Boy's case, with his stack of Artemis Fowl books.
At The Boy's behest, I have started said books. The first book I'm finding somewhat dull b ut he assures me it gets better. I want to show my kids that I value their opinions and recommendations, though I'll admit some quid pro quo here- he promised to read Ender's Game if I read Artemis Fowl. So far, he hasn't. Still, I need to trust that me slogging through his books has value for our relationship.
