Hacking the idea of traditional homeschooling

The first portion of my education was handled by nuns. Although there were other teachers, the nuns served as school principals and shaped my little mind and didn't teach me enough science.…

Did you really earn that grade?

My son had a spelling test the other day (never mind that he is only four). He came home with a lollipop and a reward report saying that he spelled all his sight words correctly. Except: He didn't.…

How Crafty Are You???

Attention all you crafty folks!!!

I've come up with a brilliant business idea. Let me just preface it by saying yours truly would NEVER be the CEO but I'd absolutely be a return customer!!!!  LOL.

Allow me to explain...

I have three kids. Do you know what that means?  A heck of a lot of SCHOOL PROJECTS...models of solar systems, shoebox dioramas, book jackets, crossword puzzles, etc. etc. etc. The list can go on and on, depending on the teacher.

I digress for a…

Dear Mom love letters

I was standing in the kitchen cleaning up after dinner when I heard my son's "serious voice" behind me.

"Excuse me, Mommy. I need you to read this."

He handed me a notepad, and…

Stay in school, kids

As my son and I waited way too long to get a prescription filled the other day, an older gentleman started chatting with us. He remarked that my son was being very patient, and he asked my son how old he was. My son replied politely. (Proud Mommy moment.) My son then volunteered the information that he was allowed to talk to strangers but not leave…

Let's pretend you didn't say that

When I found out I was pregnant with my son, I started curbing my swearing. Admittedly, it had gotten a little out of hand as I was working for a company that had a stress-inducing, boy's club environment, and f-bombs were dropped by multiple people in every meeting.…

That's not the school bell ringing - it's your phone

I could tell open this post by telling a story about waiting in line to use a payphone in my high school to call a friend who was supposed to pick me up after sixth period. Or I could reminisce about when pagers became very cool and lots of friends at my high school had them.

But that would make me feel old,…

Staying in sync with the kids

When I was in junior high school, my Mom worked a varied schedule. Sometimes she was there to pick me up right at 3:30; other days I would go into after school care until 5 pm. Sometimes a friend's parents took me home. (That particular Catholic school didn't have a bus.)…

Conversation with my son

Every weekend my kids want to have company come over. I'm always reminding them that I don't have a built in card in my brain that automatically stores the contact information for everyone I meet, and neither do they, so they need to physically exchange numbers with their friends. Do they? No, but every weekend we seem to have…

Mommy is failing at school

Within the span of his short life, my son has been to two schools. He attended the first school from the extremely tender age of six weeks old and only left it after we moved, right before his fourth birthday. In that first school, he made his first friends, and there was a core group of them that moved from room to room. It became natural for me to know them and for them to know me. I've painted their faces, talked to them upon pickup,…

Back to School Schedule Crunch

It’s that time of year again. Stores are advertising incredible sales on school supplies, the temperatures outside are starting to cool down, and school bus stops are affecting your morning commute. As the summer winds down, school once again becomes the priority for scheduling your children’s time throughout the week. Soccer practice, karate and playing on the XBOX has to be carefully fit into the same hectic evenings where homework and after-school programs compete for you and…

Coasting in the classroom

There are several people in my office who stand while they work. I admire them. Because although I know I need to stand up more in my day, I'm not yet at the point where I am ready to raise my desk. (I'd have to stop wearing heels to the office, for one thing.)…

Why girls are making the grade

I sit with my son as he does his homework. I love watching him write the letters in his weekly sight words (he has beautiful handwriting) and the way he sticks out his tongue as he counts objects in sets. It takes a lot of focus on his part and on mine, too. Because if I don't sit there with him, he is not going to do it on his own. From his perspective, there are Legos to play with and adventures to be had; homework gets in the…
