If I’m diapering a watermelon, then where’d I leave the baby? :
help for the highly distractible mom  by Carol Barnier

At last, a gloriously unregimented mom shares stories and strategies that help other highly distractible moms run a genuine, joyful, and successful home and homeschool! This books offers lots of practical tools to keep chaos at bay, and helps moms develop their strongest qualities – qualities that perhaps have been seen as weaknesses. Best of all, you will find new reasons to be excited about who you are, and you will discover how the qualities you possess are true gifts from God that make you a real asset to your family. Learn how working with your personality traits instead of constantly fighting against them makes it possible for you to: keep track of items that get lost at the worst possible moment, actually arrive on time or even early, access whatever information you need whenever you need it, limit the pesky interruptions that get you off task, get stuff to organize itself so you have more time to spend with your family, and organize and run a “delight-driven” home and/or homeschool.

Educating the wholehearted child :  a handbook for Christian home education  by             Clarkson, Clay.

“God did not forget to include “school” in his biblical design for raising children: home education is a natural expression of all that God intended for parents and their children. Clay and Sally Clarkson’s Educating the WholeHearted Child is about rediscovering God’s original design for the family. What you’ll find in this book is a homeschooling model that makes sense. It’s an approach that is based on sound biblical principles of nurture, discipleship, instruction, and learning.
