...we had the following conversation while getting the kids bathed before dinner.
Hubby: "Alright, kids, when you're done getting bathed, get day-clothes on." (We were going as a family to a party that night)
Me: "Actually, why don't we have them just put on pajamas? We don't know how late we'll be out and it's one less change of outfits to deal with."
Hubby: "Are you sure? They're not going to feel awkward?"
Me: (head cocked to the side) "Honey. They're homeschooled."
Hubby: (pause) "Ok, kids, get in pajamas."
Haha. I love that it was a perfectly valid argument all on it's own. See, aren't our kids kinda expected be awkward? I say embrace it! :) They wear some of the weirdest outfits out of the house. I love that they don't even care.
(This new series is meant to be mostly lighthearted and fun. Some may be serious, but most will be silly, braggy, or of the keepin'-it-real variety. Not every homeschool is the same. And some of these things could be said by public school parents. This is just to highlight MY experience with MY homeschool and MY children. Enjoy these little insights into our life and feel free to share your own "Homeschooling means..." in the comments!)
