Lady in line at McDonalds, today, “No, really, I know you from somewhere…”
Me, “Hmmm…” after giving her several options of the different circles I run in (work, ballet, soccer, etc), “…well…do you home school?” I figured I knew her from some home school organization.
She says, “Yes! I just started!!”
To which I joyfully declare, “Oh! Well! Then that’s not it because I just quit!!”
“You quit?? Home schooling???”
Me, “Yes and OH MY! It’s been SO WONDERFUL!!”
hahahaha I felt kinda bad afterwards. I hope that wasn’t discouraging to her though!
And then we got the playground and I remembered one of the main reasons I did actually enjoy home schooling. Personal convenience. The playland was overcrowded with children due to the day being a school holiday. It was noisy, smelly, stuffy and overcrowded with too many shrill voices (one belonging to my own Claire Bug) for this mama. Especially this mama with a sinus infection. We ate the junk food and quickly left.
Of course, being able to eat a peaceful meal at McDonalds is NOT a good enough reason to home school, folks!!
