Homeschool Pet Peeves

  1. The kids eat all day long, I'm constantly kicking them out of the kitchen.
  2. Finding books everywhere...and I do mean everywhere!
  3. If the kids don't get it, I can't blame the teacher.
  4. The dining room table looks like a paper factory.
  5. The kids don't care if they wear matching clothes or not...but I do!
  6. The principal takes bribes and plays favorites.(maybe this shouldn't be on this list;)
  7. Our house actually looks like 8 people live in it.
  8. I can never find any writing stinks to have jot down a quick note with lip liner or a broken crayon.
  9. When I tell the kids to line-up, they just stare blankly at me.
  10. There are no lunch ladies that prepare lunch, serve it, and clean up the mess.
P.S. When I asked the kids what their homeschool pet-peeves were, they said, "There aren't any."
So I guess it's just me;)


  1. 1. getting constantly bothered when I make breakfast, then when I call out "breakfast is ready" no one comes

    2. How hard is it to brush your hair...come on boys!

    3. I can never find a pencil with an erasure.

    4. "No, you can't have a break...we just started"

    5. "Yes, you will have to read for of your life."

    6. It looks like 12 people live here...fraternity brothers or something...can you pick that up?

  2. What a cute post! I especially laughed at #9 & 10. I think we have all been there, and I tend to stay there most of the time! HA HA

    Even with the pet peeves, I think homeschooling is the absolute best way to go.
