Is This a REAL Product??

I'm not getting why someone wouldn't just carry a baby blanket and throw it on. The lamb applique is pretty cute, though.


  1. All right, first of all who is taking a nap on a bench in between two men at her daughter's ballet class or whatever?

    Also, I'd like to see what would happen if you pulled something like that out on an airplane. Probably they'd have Homeland Security waiting for you at the gate.

    At least it has a Large Oval Nose Hole! for shnozzes of ALL SIZES!

  2. No way am I sleeping with anything over my head. I don't care if it does have a hole to breath through.

    Disturbingly, brief research indicates that this is for real.

    As one blogger put it, "Now you too can look like a dork!"

    I predict that someone is going to lose their shirt over this particular business scheme. Of course, they won't mind because all they'll have to do is cover themselves with an extra-large verion.

  3. wow! cuz an eye mask just wouldn't do?? looks like a partial burka

  4. Too funny! They might be able to market that over here in Japan - people love catching a bit of shut eye on the train here. It would be pretty spooky to get on a commuter train and find all of the people sleeping under those, though - not to mention the fact that it would be that much easier to miss your station!

    By the way, I love your new blog look! It's nice to check in after being away for a while.

  5. Paper bags do it for me lol.

  6. The things people think of!!

    Am a bad blogger = havent been over here for ages - looking good :) x

  7. I thought the same thing about the snuggly . . .

Reading Curriculum: ABeka Book and BJU Press

Did you know that in the state of Missouri, homeschoolers must teach reading as a separate subject?  I don't know how anyone could homeschool well without teaching their child to read... but OK. 

I got many of my ABeka books used and collected them over time.  I'm glad I came across these readers early in my homeschooling years.  It teaches children to read step-by-step.  I don't think I've seen a more effective reading program for the elementary years.  The children love the stories, and what I appreciate about them is that there is a rich and varied language even in simple-to-read books in this series. 

My set is pretty old, and some are even from the 1960's and no longer listed in the reading series.  I think if I had to do things over again somehow, I think I'd just spend on a curriculum set and be done with it.  That's the thing, though, with homeschooling.  By the time you figure out what the perfect curriculum is for you, your children have graduate…

Homeschooling is NOT So Hard.

I wish I'd have known this starting out. I wish I'd have known that it's actually LESS work to just homeschool your child, than to be an "involved parent" at school.

We've enjoyed elementary school with our older boys. *Most* of the teachers were actually pretty competent and caring (the others, I save for another blog post, another day...). We had the children involved in extra activities like the Spanish Club or Service Club, or choir, and they got a fair bit out of the experience.

But it's a LOT of work.

You get about a ton of worksheets that must be done by a certain time. Usually on a day when you're sick or have no time. You get the phone calls about this or that, and about a zillion sheets per day that sometimes contain important news, so you MUST go through them daily. The schools also *love* to throw in half days, teacher in-service days and early dismissals. Not so bad, unless you have children at more than one school and the schedu…

Holiday Gifts for the Homeschool Teacher!

Merrymaking hint:  leave this post up on your phone/ computer for your family to "accidentally" find!  Let the magic begin!

 All teachers love a little appreciation every now and then, including homeschoolers.   I don't know about you, though, but I don't want any apple crap.  So first rule:  no apple crap! 

Otherwise I'm pretty open.  I love getting gifts, even if it's just something small or simple.  One thing I love is when my children want to help out and make lunch or clean up or put their laundry away.  Or just behave themselves and get their math done.  This is a really big thing when you think about it.  

And from the adults in my life, the gift of coffee always shows love - or rather, someone not wanting an "I need coffee" emergency in the middle of winter after a big snowstorm.  Somehow, I always have a lot of coffee in my pantry during the winter months.  (Guess why.) Thanks, D!
