5 things about me...mommy style!



  • My kids do not clean up their toys every night before bed, hence a messy house with kids stuff everywhere.
  • I was homeschooled from 2nd grade until I graduated high school and it never entered my mind to homeschool my own children. Instead I teach 3rd grade in a public school!
  • I refuse to take my kids to daycare in the summer because that is our time together. For a couple years I even paid all summer to keep our spots at a daycare even though my kids only went once and that was so I could go to my GYN appointment.
  • Bribery has its place and I am not ashamed to say I use it often!
  • My kids are not restricted with Wii or the computer...since I'm usually right beside them playing too!

  2. i am with you on the no homeschooling our kids thing. I too wouldn't homeschool Abraham - he'll be in public school right with me! I actually plan on taking Abe a few times this summer to day care simply for "me time" and for him to see his friends.

  3. I hear you on the bribery. Worked for potty training and still works today on my teens!

  4. Tanks for vistiting with me. I began browsing through yours and before knew it, I had read the whole thing. I enjoyed myself thoroughly! Congrats on the new addition to the family, your niece Sophie is a week old today. The image of your son contemplating is breathtaking.
