My college life and being a parent of 5 kids

Updated on September 26, 2012

Me V.S. 5 Kids and college

This is the life for me. I don't think I could ask for anything more than what I have now. But facts are facts and the reality is the hard core reality that it is a very difficult job to do what I do. Full time college, full time parent of 5, and part time work. Everyday there is a long list of stuff to get done for the day just to get through to the next. But if the truth be told I absolutly love my life and being busy with all that I do. I love my kids and love my fiance and our life that we have together. School is one of those needed evils that will only make the future brighter for me and my family. Plus the good thing about college also besides getting a degree, is the fact my children see me doing it and have a higher percentage that they will go also. I know that I am able to actually help them with their school work now with ease; whereas before I struggled with being able to help them to get the right answers and the way to get to the right answers. This is my story of how I got to where I am and my journey of where I am at now............

There is always help out there. The college offeres tutoring with minimal costs. But you can always youtube to get the help that is needed also. This for one saves you the money and you can get all different views on the subject to help you out. If you don't like the tutor just click on another. This way no one will get their feelings hurt! lol Tutoring in English is almost always a needed thing. Check it out............................


First things first

Which is your kids

Without having something to fall back on you are not helping your kids out. You are showing them that it is ok to live without ever trying to reach your goals in life. That you are just one to talk about what you want to do with your life instead of being like Nike and "Just Do It!" It shows that you really are trying to do something in life and give them the incentive to want to do it too when they get to that point in life. If anything it will make a better life for you and your children.


Tutoring in Math!!!!

Be proud of your school and support it with some college jewlery!


Mini Mester Class

Well I had never taken a mini mester before and thought I would give it a shot. A 5 month course taken in a 3 week period of time. Wow what a mess I got myself into. The class had started on a monday and on tuesday at midnight the chapter needed to be read, the glossary words wrote down, the power point notes taken, discussion questions answered and posted, and a quiz of 25 questions to do. This routine has not let up since it all started. So every 2 days a chapter with all other things that go with it are due by midnight. 9 days into the class we had our midterm of a 100 questions and 90 minutes to finish the test; that makes it less than a minute a question! Wow I was beside myself. Wouldn't be such a bad thing if there weren't normal things in life that have to get done too along with the fact it is christmas break for the kids and they are all at home driving me up the walls with questions of Christmas diner and gifts and what time will it all happen! Can't blame them they are just excited and I am looosing another handful of hair a day. lol Over all the mini mester was a great idea. An even better idea is the fact I took the online class instead of one in the classroom. WAY better!! I would suggest it to anyone thinking of taking the same thing. Where could you go wrong with 3 weeks and 3 credit hours instead of having to drag the course out over the 5 months. I will have to agree that there are just some classes that should not be shortened. Also, if it is a subject that you are not good at I wouldn't do the shortened version of it either.

Parenting Stuff on Amazon

Here is where if you don't know much about parenting you can always find books that can help you deal with what you are trying to deal with. Even if it seems like there is no one else dealing with what you are. believe me when I say someone has been through what you have at least one person. Try to read more about the situation that you dealing with and you might just learn something!!


Just trying to make it

I have so many passions in life but cleaning up poop off the walls is not one of them. While I was trying to study for my class I heard the kids screaming eww. So of course I have to go and check it out. I head down the hall and low and behold there is one of them with a hand full of poop and drawing with it on the carpet and the wall. Hmm, this is exactly what I was told life was all about when I was growing up!! Right? lol So then it's clean up and a quick bath and then back to the homework.

At least let someone know that they are not the only ones that have gone through the problems that they are facing or maybe a helpful hint or two!
