Day 50: Reflection in the Mirror

After an epic battle of looking at my son's planner and figuring out that he does indeed have homework, I have come to the conclusion that he is indeed my son.  Even though it is difficult to admit, when my son is defensive like this, it is own reflection in the mirror.  When I was in middle school, I was secretive about my homework, especially if I was in the wrong.  Unfortunately, I still am secretive even though I get caught.  My husband calls it "falling asleep".  Part of the many reasons for this blog is to address these issues of "falling asleep".  When I look at my reflection in the mirror, i.e. my son, I want to be proud of my image.  I want to set good examples for him so that he will grow up to my a good man.

So here is my confession: I have gotten behind in my homework yet again just like in the summer.  I have one month left of the term and so I need to bust it out to complete everything in time.  I need your words of encouragement!

Let me know your thoughts.


  1. They're not my words - but Flylady (of www.flylady.net) always says "You are never behind! Jump in where you are!"....so....jump in where you are. A deadline is certainly motivation...but you can do it.

    Try focusing on the homework 15 minutes at a time, take a break for 15 minutes then return to the homework.

    sheesh. I'm only saying that because if I were in college again, that's what I do. I used to procrastinate way too much. :)

    YOU CAN DO IT!!!!

    I love that "Jump in where you are!" Great suggestion...I think I will try that...
