I realized after writing a few posts, that I am extremely comfortable with myself and the fact that I homeschool, and you know what comes with comfort? Honesty. So while I may be judged for choosing to homeschool or the way I do it, or even the way I live my life,
I AM HAPPY
MY HUSBAND IS HAPPY
MY KIDS ARE HAPPY
Go ahead and judge me if you must. Here, let me give you some stuff.
You want to know some truths?
My 2nd grader does not read as well as the average 2nd grader. I’m okay with that. We are working on it, but it is no reason for me to give up.
My 3 year old can work the PS3 and Netflix and has been able to for quite some time now.
My 6th grader and my 8th grader are almost at the same level in math.
My 6th grader is a book worm.
The rest of my kids, not so much.
My kids fight. My kids get along too.
My husband and I fight. We get along too.
We sometimes make decisions we regret. But, we learn from them.
My kids misbehave, heck, sometimes I misbehave.
We are Mormon, but not active. And, we don’t really live the Mormon lifestyle. But we are still Mormon.
I have a few guilty pleasures. I love the Real Housewives of Anywhere. I hide candy from everyone else and sneak it.
I was mostly soda free for 8 months. I am now back on the sauce. (Pepsi)
Sometimes we have cereal for dinner, and Ramen noodles for breakfast. (not very often, but it has happened. Not on the same day, that I can remember.)
My house is never spotless, well except for that once every couple of months when I throw down the gauntlet and demand complete cleanliness. That usually doesn’t come out of my mouth very nice, but I get my way. Then I feel better.
I am not perfect, and there are times when I don’t try my hardest to be.
There you have it! That’s who I am.
