Yes, the homeschool moms. It's us. We feel a tad left out this week. Behind all our bravado and nonchalance, there is a teeny part of us that wonders what it would feel like to have the house empty 6 hours a day, 5 days a week; we go all aquiver at the thought of our kids getting upset with someone WHO IS NOT US over assigned math problems; in fact, sometimes we even fantasize about nodding sagely at parent-teacher conferences and running the PTA gift wrap sale. ANYTHING, that is, but do what lies before us. AGAIN.
Because, yoo-hoo, 6th-grade math the 5th time around? NOT FUN. I'll wager I could face down any of you when it comes to calculating fractions and percentages, but the thrill is gone. GONE.

We salute you happy moms this week, as fellow soldiers in a great battle - we are sisters in suffering, fighting the good fight to get our unappreciative, Minecraft-obsessed children educated, one way or another. Remember, ours is not to reason why...
