You Know You're a Homeschool Mom When....

I found this on a website and thought it was very appropiate and had to share.... How many can you relate to?

You Know You're A Homeschool Mom When...

*When a child busts a lip, and after seeing she's okay, you round up some Scotch tape to capture some blood and look at it under the microscope.

*You find dead animals and actually consider saving them to dissect later.

*Your children never, ever leave the "why?" stage.

*You look at every room in your home to try and imagine how to squeeze in another bookshelf.

*You turn your china cabinet into book shelves.

*When your teenager decides to take one community college course, and comes home and asks you why the teacher wrote "At" on his paper. (A+)

*You ask for, and get, a copier instead of a diamond tennis bracelet for your wedding anniversary or Christmas.

*Your kids think reading history is best accomplished while lying on the floor with their head resting on the side of their patient dog.

*Your husband can walk in at the end of a long day and tell how the science experiment went just by looking at the house.

*You never have to drive your child's forgotten lunch to school.

*Your child will never suffer the embarrassment of group showers after PE.

*The only debate about the school lunch program is whose turn it is to cook.

*You never have to face the dilemma of whether to take your child's side or the teacher's side in a dispute at school.

*If your child gets drugs at school, it's probably Tylenol.

*Your neighbors think you are insane.

*Your kids learn new vocabulary from their extensive collection of "Calvin & Hobbes" books.

*Your formal dining room now has a computer, copy machine, and many book shelves and there are educational posters and maps all over the walls.

*You have meal worms growing in a container....on purpose.

*If you get caught talking to yourself, you can claim you're having a PTA meeting.

*Talking out loud to yourself is a parent/teacher conference.

*You take off for a teacher in-service day because the principal needs clean underwear.

*You can't make it through a movie without pointing out the historical inaccuracies.

*You step on math manipulatives on your pre-dawn stumble to the bathroom.

*The teacher gets to kiss the principal in the faculty lounge and no one gossips.

*Your honor student can actually read the bumper sticker that you put on your car.

*If your child claims that the dog ate his homework, you can ask the dog.

*Someday your children will consider you to be a miracle-working expert and will turn to you for advice.

*Your kids refer to the neighbor kids as "government school inmates."

*You can't make it through the grocery produce department without asking your preschooler the name and color of every vegetable.

*You can't put your produce in your cart without asking your older student to estimate its weight and verify its accuracy.

*You live in a one-house schoolroom
