Bossy People.


Good morning!  Woodjie is ready to cuddle and read a good book in his robot jammies.
Welcome to a new kind of annoying:  the know-it-all homeschool mom.

Usually these are actually mothers whose oldest child is under ten years old.  Somehow, they know how to raise a wonderful tribe of children to adulthood and want to share their wisdom. 

Here's one.  A young mom rants about homeschool jammies on the internetz:  "People who do not choose to homeschool already view our ilk with some mixture of curiosity, skepticism, or disdain.  Must we confirm their suspicions that we are either a) shirking responsibility; b) lazy and not really doing anything; or c) just plain weird?" 

Hmm.  I think her freakout dance about this being the horrid thing people will remember about homeschoolers actually says a lot of good things about homeschoolers.  We have to have a snotty, uppity, "I am doing a better job than you" sort of post and it's about... jammies.  Okay then.  It's good to know that these are the sorts of up and coming problems in the homeschooling community!  Jammies.

  1. Heh. I homeschooled in my PJs and get dressed for work today. But the moment I get home it's "comfy pants" time! And I realize I'm not the most successful and driven person in the world, but much of my free film school was shot in a nice button up shirt and comfy pants (which you don't see). Yup. That's the secret: Stay comfy!

  4. ooopsies. I homeschooled for 10 years, and only made the kids get dressed (and shower) when we were about to leave the house. My bad. The good news is they do get dressed before they leave their dorm rooms.
