Is every day going to be like this????!!!!!???? Haven JUST finished her homework. It's 10:30 pm!!! So it went down like this:
2:30 Haven's out of school
Sits down in my office to do homework.
Needs help on everything.
6:00 leave work. Had to stay late because we're doing end of month paperwork.
Trip to grocery store because we're out of everything.
7:00 home. Cook dinner for the starving masses living in my house. Haven working on homework.
8:30 Ethan to bed, finally some peace.
9:00 Rob home, tag team homework help.
10:30 finally finished.
Absolutely ridiculous. Plus I had to help her spell every word because the English language is so hideous! At one point we both shouted how stupid English is and I told Haven we should go back to German school! ARGH!
I suppose all of you who have been in the American system with your kids all this time probably are laughing at my anguish. But I have been spoiled for the last six years with German school! Out at 12:30, after school care till 3:00, NO homework in the afternoons because it's all done in the after school program! But even still, she's never had THIS much homework! If she went to SAS after school she'd spend the whole three hours doing nothing but homework!
Ok, I think I've ranted enough to cool off. If tomorrow is like this again I'm going to have a tantrum and be one of "those" parents...
