Homeschool Humor, Mom Edition

What does it look like after a year homeschooling? This morning's text exchange says it all.

Fictitious names protect the innocent.



Before I go any further:

But as I said last month, homeschooling is freakin’ tough. This morning's text exchange with parents of my daughter's classmates says it all.


The best part?

These moms have been a lifeline all year and I've never met them.


Mom #1

Oh boy... Ms. Sage is a real professional at avoiding the "are leprechauns real?" conversation. 😂


Mom #2

That's exactly what I was thinking!


Mom #3

Ha! I wish I heard what she said!


Mom #1

She said it was a family conversation and not a school conversation... so get ready everyone!


Mom #4

Oh man.... hysterical


Mom #5

Ha! I've told my kids that they're not real all along and they think I'm lying.


Mom #6

Well leprechauns are definitely real in my house 🙄 ☘️. Try to argue that with Sam.


Mom #4

I was going to say I'm always vague when my kids ask me that stuff... but Jesse has older siblings who tell her all sorts of stuff.


Mom #7

As soon as they get old enough to ask direct questions I feel bad enough lying about Santa. I don't have the energy for leprechauns and the Easter bunny. 😂


Mom #4

😂


Mom #6.

What math are they supposed to be doing?


Mom #7

Great question. I came into the room and Wyatt was watching baseball with Taylor soooo 😑.


Mom #6.

😂 We're doing St. Patrick's Day mystery picture.


Mom #7

He then told me "counting by 10's" but that was pretty fast so we're just doing random activities now.


Mom #5

Adam just told me he had a break until 10 o'clock which I thought was highly suspect so we are doing the mystery picture.


Mom #8

Just coming up for air + reading this entire thread in one sitting and literally laughing out loud! When this darn pandemic is over I say all of us meeting and celebrate survival!


Mom #6

Sam said they're supposed to make a leprechaun trap now? Which conveniently he already made one.


Mom #7

What in the actual F. Wyatt was CUTTING HIS HAIR during the last meeting. I need school to open full time ASAP.

Mom #8

Like I said - we need to celebrate survival!!! Well, if we can make it there...


Mom #7

😂 😂 😂


Mom #6

Does anyone know what they're supposed to be doing? I doubt it's cutting hair.


Mom #7

Basically any of the St. Patrick's Day activities.


Mom #5

So the schedule says reconvene at 10:50 but Adam is saying 11?


Mom #7

Jack also said 11

Mom #4

😂 😂 😘

Oops that was meant to be all laugh faces
