(3 Things You Can’t Say To Me, 1 Thing You Can) On the Topic Of Homeschooling

Summer is upon us, which means everyone with an asshole and an opinion wants to tell me what I should be doing with my family come next fall. My 11 year old is - technically - a to-be-6th grader; although, to define her as such in homeschooling terms seems very unfair. We don't take breaks for… Continue reading (3 Things You Can’t Say To Me, 1 Thing You Can) On the Topic Of Homeschooling

What’s the Deal, Mom Bloggers?

I know what you're all thinking:  I'm probably about to alienate myself from the world of Mom Bloggers forever. I'm probably about to say something super bitchy, or downright rude.
