Myth 47: all homeschoolers agree on pajamas. we don’t. the homeschoolers down the block can be found wearing first Holy Communion outfits any time of the day.
Myth 48: Homeschooling mothers are more attractive. this is not a myth. it’s true. we attract more invitations to babysit, drive neighbors, walk dogs etc because, well, we’re home all day.
myth 49: homeschool kids have whiter teeth. it only seems this way because they smile more.
myth 50: homeschool moms don’t know how to say “no.” in fact, we don’t. instead, the Catholic ones say, “Gee, Martha. That sounds like a problem. I’ll pray you find someone to walk Sharky while you’re gone.”
seriously, REAL Myth:
to the supporters, that there is any guarantee of success.
to the detractors, that there is any guarantee of failure.
in fact, just like everything else we do, our family works as if everything depends on us and pray as if everything depends on God. we trust HIM that nothing, even apparent failures are not wasted.
