I was home schooled from 5th grade up. It is one of the best things my mom ever did for me. But even home school can have its problems. Those are usually the kids. 🙂
Moms, do you have any idea what’s going on in the school room when you walk out of it? My mom didn’t either!
I think it’s just something about January, Christmas break is over, and even though we were supposed to be doing our school, we just didn’t feel very inclined to apply ourselves. So amid much whispering and talking and wearing our poor mother down to a worn out mess, my brothers and I produced a poem.
Every time she would leave the room, we would talk and I would scribble. Oh, and I was 16 at the time, certainly old enough to know better!
A Humorous Look at the Home School Family
Books and papers, pencils, more; Running in the schoolroom door.
Throwing books on the big long table, Mother saying “you stay stable”
Momma helping with the sticks, Us kids joking, playing tricks.
Kips a yelling he needs help, Mother whacks him, he gives a yelp!
Kyle snickers, gets a whack, I sorta grinned, got popped on the back.
School time is such fun, when around the house, we take a run.
The three of us, the best of pals, swatting each other with bathroom towels!
Momma comes out, hits the ceiling, while whacks of the stick we are suddenly feeling.
To our work we settle down with haste, but it doesn’t stick more than cheap school paste.
We start to talk of this and that, argue over our favorite cat.
Mother’s at her wits end, finds Daddy, sends him in.
Daddy comes in, begins to preach, takes a bow at the end of his speech.
“Sure!” we say, “we’ll obey”.
Do we? I say no! Out of the room Kyle will go, Kip needs a drink. Well, what do you think?
Finally Mother makes a deal, “Sure we will!” we quickly squeal.
A piece of fudge, but we don’t budge. How about 2 at 10 (pm)? We think that’s a deal then!
Mother got mad, made us very sad.
At last our school is finally done, we learned a little but had lost of fun.
We part in ways for the rest of the day. That’s why in school we like to play!
One thing I would like to clarify, every thing that is mentioned in that poem did happen, but we also exaggerated lots!!!
What do you think: should my mom receive the ‘Mom Of The Year’ award for homeschooling us?
