    I often feel like I’m behind the 8ball as I try to manage these super great lessons while being a working single mom. Anyone have any thoughts as to whether this can “work” given these constraints? Any modifications that you can suggest?

    Hi Rachel!

    My friend Amy batches her lessons! She works during the week, so Saturday afternoon is officially “Other Goose Day” in her house. She lays out all of their favorite snacks, opens the windows, plays jazz music and they get through whatever lessons sound fun to do together. (She told me they love it so much her 6-year-old turned down a birthday party invitation because he couldn’t miss “goose time!”)

    A few other working moms print off a few lessons to send along when Grandma watches the kids!

    Most importantly: there’s no such thing as getting behind. Try introducing just 1 lesson a day until you can built it into a rhythm that works for you. Learning is self-paced, and a forever process. Keep up the great work! We’re here to help in any way.
