Home Schooling Nanny

Sounds like an excellent title for an erotica, doesn't it? (I'll have to remember it just in case I decide to write one.)

However, this blog is not about that, it is about how I, in my dotage, have become a grandmother who is homeschooling three grands.

It is fun and invigorating, but it also eats up a great deal of energy.

We visit the library an average of three times a week. That's three times a week for the children, my own personal trips add another three visits a week. My library is only open five days, one of them is Saturday, and I don't go on Saturday and usually not on Fridays, so yes, I spend a lot of time there.

We also travel into Boston to attend art classes at the Museum of Fine Arts, we have skating every other week, and weekly park days, which are about to become twice a week. 

We do not lack socializing opportunities.

We have organic classes in the car, at Starbucks, or walking on the beach.

The children are happier and learning things they would never get in school.

And best of all, I get to spend a lot of time with three wonderful children.

And occasionally I get to write.

Do you, or have you ever considered, home schooling?


  1. Yes! I've homeschooled and it was the best experience for me and for my kids. We learned a lot but you're right--it's pretty exhausting. I bet you're the best teacher ever, though. Your grandchildren are blessed! :)

    1. The time spent with the children is very special. I am so happy you were able share that experience with your family.

  2. I've thought about it. I couldn't do it myself as I need to bring in an income. I believe it's something my daughter would benefit from in the long run.

    1. It is a difficult conundrum. It is something you would both benefit from, but necessity overcomes desire.

      Perhaps soon you will be able to work something out.
