Finally some much needed “me” time. Today has been crazy busy, I've barely had a second to myself. This morning I had my son school assembly play to attend, and he did an awesome job. This afternoon I made orders and answered emails.
When Alex got home from school she needed to do her with an English text response assignment on the movie Edward Scissorhands, that’s due tomorrow. At first she told me she knew what she was doing, so I cleaned up, organized tomorrow orders and made dinner. Once Phoenix and Skye were in bed by 7pm I read her assignment and realized she was having difficulties understanding the themes in the movie. Therefore the assignment that she had spend 4 hours on, wasn’t going to work. So I sat down with her and we watched Edward Scissorhands together. After a few more hours work, it was 11pm and it is still incomplete but I sent her to bed. Now I have a dilemma, do I finished it for her tonight or wake her up early in the morning so that she completes it.
Alex is only 12 years old, I honestly think the themes in Edward Scissorhands went over her head. She is still a child, and doesn’t always grasp teen and adult themes. It's all my fault I have been too overprotective, and I haven't taught her enough about the world.
