Lately though, I have found my patience with my own kids stretched very thin. What I'm beginning to realize is that my job is honestly just being "mom" to 20 other kids for 7 hours a day. So not only am I a mom when I'm home, but I play one
I know it's not fair to my two at all and I just don't know what to do. Don't get me wrong, I truly enjoy my job. It is very demanding, physically and emotionally draining, but the rewards are incredible. However, I don't want my kids being jipped of having a loving mommy because I'm totally over kids by the end of the work day. My children deserve the patience and love that I share with the students in my class even more than they do!!
Any teacher readers out there?
How do you manage to maintain patience with your children after working with children all day?
Working moms? How do you balance your job and quality time with your kids?
For my stay at home mommys, how do you do it? Being home all day and maintaining the patience?
Is it bad to say that some days I just need a kid break?!
