I’m a mom and I’m an adjunct professor at a couple of different online institutions. This is a very different life than the one that I imagined when I was in grad school and I’m all about trying to figure out how to negotiate this life and make it as wonderful and as happy as possible.
Cast of characters:
Adjunctmom: An overworked mother of two.
P: spouse of adjunct mom. Busy professional who is on call 24/7 which makes for a very interesting life.
Ben: 4 1/2 year old son of adjunctmom. Very smart child who is homeschooling and learning to accept it.
