You Might Be a Homeschool Mom if…

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy here.

If you intentionally have a jar of dirt that has multiple worms inside it in your bedroom…you might be a homeschool mom.

If your children have set up the entire basement to model Costco and are shopping away to their hearts content and you chalk up the experience as the bulk of your school day…you might be a homeschool mom.

If coming home from the library involves something akin to a wagon to get all the books back…you might be a homeschool mom.

If you make ask your children do yardwork and count it as PE for the day…you might be a homeschool mom.

If your freezer goes on the fritz and starts thawing everything in sight and you empty the freezer, only to find a dead bird in a ziploc bag shoved at the back of the freezer…you might be a homeschool mom.

If you are cleaning out your underwear drawer and find a piece of tinfoil that contains an owl pellet ~ and the fact that it was in your underwear drawer doesn’t give you the heebie-jeebies…you might be a homeschool mom.

  2. The joys of homeschooling. Good times [smile]. I honestly believe none of these should be particularly surprising or abnormal activities for those who love to learn. I'm not saying I think everyone should keep a dead bird in the freezer; merely that when learning is a lifestyle it's not surprising to find learning aids in all areas of our lives.

  4. okay.. I was with you up until the owl pellet in the underwear drawer.. care to elaborate on why it was there.. and did you remember/know it was there?


    On a completely different note I made those Strawberry Shortcake Cookies you posted about last year.

  5. How about if you have a bin of peeps (the live kind, not the candy kind) peeping away in your laundry room AND a jar of caterpillars (now in their cocoons) on your kitchen counter AND the dead bird in your freezer (one of the peeps that didn't make it) waiting for burial?

    Yup, I'm sure I'm a homeschool mom because my neighbors say they're never quite sure what they'll find when they walk into my house. Haha...

    Well, I know one thing they're not likely to ever find... and that's a clean house! ;)

  6. And PS... we had the dissected owl pellet (for the record: a "hairball," not poop) finds in a little plastic cup in our kitchen for weeks and weeks. The kids thought it was SO COOL that they found a mouse skull and some little bird bones... so I'm right there with you!

  8. Hilarious and SO true! I Definately need a wagon to get home from the library and the ant farm that I've been tending to for 4 weeks is certainly an oddity to all my friends who don't homeschool! But it's just too fun!

    I see your Relevant button in the margin - I'll be there - hope to meet you there!

    Happy Mother's Day!
    Much Love,

  9. I just started thinking about homeschooling my kids. You make homeschooling sounds like so much fun since the kids get to learn all throughout their day. I would love that as a kid!
