No Baby Wuvs.

Woodjie was upset.  He frequently wants his "baby wuvs," and Mom refuses to sit on the couch and let him sit on her lap with a blanket for wuvs time.  Maybe he just didn't ask persistently enough.  He needs A BABY WUVS, YOU, WUVS? 

Nope.  Mommy has owies.  She can't give baby loves right now.  Want to see?  (Yes, see a owies).

"OH!!" he yelped after seeing my gash. "A PIRATES! Ee hurt you! Pirates!"

"No," Rose corrected him.  "A doctor hurt a Mom with owies."

"A pirate!  I see a hurt you??" Sigh.  He has to see where the pirates cut me open a few more times.  I'm thinking that's a way more interesting story than this "hernia" thing.


  1. Oh, that is WAY more interesting!!! Too cute!

    I haven't been online as much these days (well, trying not to), and haven't commented much, but I am praying for you quick recovery!

  2. Thank you, Sue! Arrr, me recoverin' as fast as me can. :)

  3. Poor Woodjie. Could he be persuaded to sit beside you and gently cuddle in?
    Love the pirate story!

  4. River, he's very JUMPY and right now can't take chances. Ordinarily I don't mention severe ADHD with this kid, etc., doesn't really affect his life, but between that and his autism I could get very hurt. I pass by and pet his head when he is sitting at the table sometimes though. :)

  5. Did you know that on Facebook you can change your language to pirate?? Just for giggles you should try it.

    Poor Woodjie, needing his wuvs from his pirate wounded Momma. :( Hopefully he doesn't 'outgrow' this while you are getting better. That's too cute.

  6. Noo! I hope he never outgrows baby wuvs. Though I might have to sit next to him and hug him when he is bigger.

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!
