I'm big, sparkly, loud and a tad bit over-the-top. I watch too much TV and listen to my music way too loud. I am not a writer, so don’t expect excellence. I am not deep, so don’t expect anything altogether too profound. I'm actually quite shallow, but I do have the occasional spark of brilliance; I’ll be sure to post those in bold print, you won’t want to miss them. Enjoy!
This is usually the time of year when I browse curriculum sites . . . spend long leisurely days at used bookstores cultivating just the right reading lists . . . put mountains of books on reserve at all of the local libraries.
You know, it's almost time for the beginning of the new school year, but this year I'm not a Homeschool Mom.
I'm the Mom of a college student and in a strange and unusual twist of fate, I'm a college student again myself.
I've been trying to convince Baby Boy that college isn't really all it's cracked up to be and that we should maybe do just one more year of high school to be sure he has all of his bases covered. He's not buying it.
Right now I'm supposed to be writing a research paper, but my mind keeps wandering to the local teacher supply store where they have all of those beautiful, informative, colorful, educational posters. They would look so lovely in our classroom. Every. Single. One. of them. I always enjoyed decorating our classroom each year with a different educational theme.
If anyone has any spare kidletts they want me to teach, I'm available. Oh, I don't feed, cook, or clean - only teach, LOL.
So while lesson planning and curriculum researching may seem stressful to you other Homeschooling Moms, believe me it's not nearly as stressful as not lesson planning and curriculum researching.
By the way, if anyone wants to help me compare and contrast the central conflicts in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button the book versus the movie, feel free to drop me a line. I'm simply not focused enough today.
