Our homeschool support
group forum admin recently started a fun thread on the support group’s website
forum. I had so much fun playing along that I had to post my contribution here.
Feel free to add yours in the comment below.
Finish this sentence:
If you give a homeschooling mom a Sharpie™…
…she’ll probably want some labels to go with it. When she’s
finished labeling all of her bins of school supplies, she’ll want to put them
all away neatly.
While she’s re-organizing the school room, she’ll find lots
of old curriculum to sell on the PPEA classified forum.
While she’s posting her ads, she’ll see a cool field trip on
the calendar, which she’ll have to research in order to create a mini unit
study before attending the field trip.
During her research, she’ll find some cool pictures to pin
to her field trip Pinterest pinboard and to share on Facebook with all her
At some point, she’ll look at the clock and realize that the
day is almost over, nobody did any school, old curriculum is scattered all over
the table, and a timely dinner is an impossible dream.
In desperation, she’ll call out for pizza delivery, play the
mad dash book stash game, throw a few worksheets at her dear children, and
spend too much time berating herself over a lost day.
When the pizza comes, she’ll need to sign the credit card
receipt. When she reaches for a pen, she’ll accidentally grab the Sharpie
instead. When she sees the Sharpie, she’ll remember all of the things that need
labeling in the kitchen.
Please, don’t ever give a homeschooling mom a Sharpie™.
Can you tell, I love If
You Give a Mouse a Cookie? By the way,
this homeschooling mom uses a Sharpie™ to label canning jars and fix rabbit
