2 min isn’t so long

2 min isn’t so long

It’s only fair to share…I just walked into the bedroom to my husband demonstrating to my 10yr old how 2 min isn’t very long in a very unique way… Timer set on his iPhone, wacking son with pillows, tons of giggles from my son. My husband’s parenting is never a dull moment, I tell ya. It’s only fair to share… […]

No Chocolate bunny for Dad

It’s only fair to share…Tyr and Adam were arguing about possession of his chocolate bunny (it’s Easter)…Adam was trying to convince him the Easter Bunny left a note saying the chocolate bunny was for his dad…Tyr wasn’t buying it and telling him why…ending with: Tyr: “And ALSO…” (Grabs his bunny and licks it a bunch) “I licked it.” Me: (cracking […]

Deja Vu

It’s only fair to share…I’m having an odd sense of deja vu. I’m feeling like I’ve lived this scenario before…But it damn well better be different this time around. And luckily, I am pretty sure it is.So we’re reviving The Learning Village. Remember my homeschool resource center? That failed project of mine from several years ago? Let’s see, it was […]

How crude

It’s only fair to share…My husband just told my son not to use the word “asteroid” because that was “kinda crude.”…”Call it a buttsteroid.” It’s only fair to share… Related posts: 2 min isn’t so long supermommy! emotional wreck How to best share info

Have you heard about Periscope?

Have you heard about Periscope?

It’s only fair to share…  *NOTE: 5/22/16 Updated to reflect recent changes to Periscope and the loss of Katch (site that used to archive Periscope videos that I previously mentioned in this post. Katch has since shut down, so I removed info about them from this post.)     Oh.my.goodness! If you haven’t yet, you HAVE to go check this […]

Overwhelm

Overwhelm

It’s only fair to share…  I shared the state of our school room/art area/”Big room” last post…That actually hasn’t changed yet. So today I want to talk about overwhelm. You know the feeling. I know you do. You can’t be a mom in America and not me intimate with the feeling. But I feel like homeschoolers in particular are familiar […]

Getting real

It’s only fair to share…This is me getting real. Really real. This is the state of my school room/art area currently:  Feel better about your house now? In my defense…we just came out of Halloween/birthday party MADNESS. My daughter’s birthday is tomorrow, so we chose to have her party on Halloween this year, with a Halloween theme. Since she is […]

How do I plan for a new school year?

How do I plan for a new school year?

It’s only fair to share…  And more specifically….how do I plan for a new school year that I will be using Experience-Based Learning (aka “EBL”)?? Excellent question….I’m still actually figuring this out myself. Every year…no joke…my planning and prepping changes. Someday maybe I’ll get a system that works well enough to not have to tweak regularly…but I’m not there yet. At […]

A-Ha Moment!

It’s only fair to share…So, I’m re-listening to the book “Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids” by Dr. Laura Markham right now….I ran out of audiobooks to listen to, and I thought now would be a good time to re-listen to this seriously EXCELLENT book that was just life changing for me…but it was starting to fade from my memory and I […]

Depression sucks

It’s only fair to share…Seriously. I don’t like this feeling. I rarely feel like this, and I imagine it’s brought on by that time of the month, so it should be temporary. But I just do not do well with this icky feeling. I am starting to really get an idea how hard it must be to be someone who […]

My husband the creative singer

It’s only fair to share…My husband is trying to sing Walk Like an Egyptian… Adam: “All the elves in the lookout tower” Me: what??? Adam: I don’t know the words but I want to sing. I have music in my heart. Me: okkkk It’s only fair to share… Related posts: My hot husband My Husband the Weirdo husband on strike […]
