Everything is just one big experiment.
All of it.
Everywhere you look there is some “expert” telling you how to have the best marriage, how to be the best parent, or how to be the best homeschooling mom, ever! If you’re like me you’ve probably tried some great ideas from trusted experts, only to have it completely flop.
Because, someone tried a bunch of ways that didn’t work, until they found the one that did work. They experimented with different ways to homeschool until they found one that was a great fit for them. Usually, they are so excited that they found something that worked great, that they want to share it with the rest of the world, so they too can have the same success.
Here’s the catch.
It might not work for you.
But, it also might work for you.
You never know what the “right” way for you is until you simply start trying. If you’re having a hard time homeschooling or parenting just mark that as one of your experiments that didn’t go the way you thought it would, and then try a new one.
One of my favorite quotes is, “You have not failed until you quit trying.”-Gordon B. Hinckley
I will post things on my blog that have worked for me, but they may not work for you. Or, you may just need to adapt them a little bit to be better suited for you. Hopefully, something will help you in some way and it can make your life a little easier, but just remember to keep trying and you will never fail.
**I included this picture because it made me laugh so hard when I found it. I am only 10-12 weeks pregnant, but I look like I’m much further, and my kid is lying on the ground with a bloody nose. I have no idea why someone is taking my picture, why is there a kid on the floor with a bloody nose, and why I am I not helping him? Apparently, this experiment was being angry that I’m pregnant and I don’t feel like playing mom right now. Spoiler alert, it was an experiment that didn’t work….
