I could never home school my son. Nope. Never.
Me: How about we sing our ABC’s?
Chunky: I don’t like that song.
Me: Oh but it’s so much fun! We can sing it together!
Chunky: You can sing it if you want.
Me: No let’s do it together. Learning is fun!
Chunky: I don’t wanna learn! My toys are fun. You wanna play army dudes?
Me: If you sing the ABC’s, I’ll play army dudes.
….Hey Mom, I’ve got an itchy butt! That’s funny! Itchy butt! Daddy has a big butt.
Me: Ugh, you’re gross. Let’s sing this again.
Me: Whoa. Wait. That’s L M N O P
Chunky: You said PEE! HAHAHA! Pee pee. Pee pee. Poop. I poop in the toilet. It falls out of my bum.
Me: Chunky, come on. Just sing the song and we can play. How about you start at the letter P
Chunky: OooOOOooo. You said it. You said pee. Champ pees in the yard.
Me: Yes, Champ pees in the yard.
Chunky: He poops there too. He can’t poop and pee in the toilet.
Me: You can’t pee in the toilet either.
Chunky: Yes. I. CAN! I pee in the toilet.
Me: Well then how come I sit in your pee on the toilet seat?
Chunky: Daddy did it.
Me: Can we just finish the song?
Chunky: I really don’t like this song Momma.
Me: I know you don’t, but you’re doing a really good job! You can finish it!
Chunky: Good job Momma! You’re pretty good at that song. I’m happy about you. Let’s go play with the dudes now.
I couldn’t do it.
Kudos to you Mommas who home school. You have labia majoras of steel.
