While I was waiting for the kids to get done with their Awana classes tonight I was talking to another mom and she asked if the kids went to school in that town. No, they don't, I told her, and for some stupid reason I added that we homeschool. As soon as the words were out of my mouth I thought, what are you saying, you know this never turns out well.
Right away she says, "I could never homeschool, I wouldn't have the patience for it." When in the world did homeschool parents corner the market on patience? Today was one of those school days where I could have used a little, okay a lot, more patience and so it wasn't the best time for someone to say that to me. But I smiled nicely and said, "Some days I don't either." Dad was with and he smiled nicely and said that today was one of "those days."
I hope I didn't burst her bubble about homeschool parents.
