The Homeschool Sisters Podcast #3:

I Want a Milkshake: When Dad Works a Lot

In this episode of The Homeschool Sisters Podcast, Cait and Kara discuss what it is like when dad works or travels a lot.

It can be stressful to be the only adult on duty, 24/7. Bedtime becomes more challenging, washing machines break, and the last thing you want to think about is dinner.

Cait and Kara have been there, too, and they have some survival strategies to help you through it. From games to fantastic audiobooks to dinner picnics, we’ve got you covered!

Cait and Kara want to send a huge hug to all the single mamas out there who rock solo-parenting day in and day out. If you know a single mama, ask her kids over for a playdate so that she can get lost in a bookstore, savor a silent moment, and enjoy her coffee steaming hot!

    Thank you for all the recommendations on books and board games! Earlier this month I just spent 10 days alone with our kids while my husband was in Europe and I intuitively did a lot of the things you guys talked about in this episode. We didn’t have milkshakes, but special treats at Panera Bread and a fast food place (yes! I’ll admit it!), Pizza Movie Night, stacks of library books as well as nature exploration walks. Your podcast was very reassuring, thank you! 🙂

    Just found your podcast and Instagram recently! I love it!!! This is a homeschoolers goldmine, in my opinion. This show, in particular, is excellent and extremely timely as my husband has just opened a franchise on TOP of working his full-time government job. Thank you for the valuable perspective, the excellent ideas, and the camaraderie! So grateful for what you both are doing.

      Oh! Thank you Evita. This makes us so happy because this is exactly what we want to do with the show. I bet your house is so busy right now – be good to yourself, OK? We’ve both been there and it’s HARD. So take the short-cuts you can, and know we’re sending you a giant sister hug across the miles!
