They don’t get us, at all, my fellow homeschool mom, do they? They just see the mom jeans, the diaper (or library!) bag, and our dear little ducklings filing into the store, mall, or office behind us.
They may roll their eyes and wonder where we left our feminist card, and wonder how we could ever be fulfilled by hanging out with our kids every day. They think all we do is stay in the house in our pajamas and change diapers, pick up toys, or read all day. They think we’re wasting our time.
They are wrong.
They really don’t get that under the façade of that minivan and the “The world is our classroom” bumper sticker that they are looking at a hard core rebel of the most devious sort!
You are a rebel, Homeschool Mom
That’s right, dear homeschool mom. You are a rebel. You’re not a shrinking violet. You’re not worthless, and your kids are awesome people. You’ve exercised your ability to choose your path, and you’ve chosen well. They may be right about the pajamas every now and then, but they don’t know that those yoga pants and that t-shirt are your power suit.
Instead of going with the flow, you’ve taken your children back from a failing system and you’ve said, “No!” to the abuses of this generation.
You’re standing against a crowd of public opinion that says your choices don’t matter. Dear mom, you are proving them wrong every single day. That son the system slapped a label on is thriving under your care, and that daughter who just wanted to talk in class is now succeeding on her debate team.
Your family will succeed
You’re not willing to take the status quo for your family. You’re taking the responsibility for your family. You are saying, “I’m not willing to stand by and let my family get consumed by this system. We will succeed!”
You’ve chosen to see the little moments with your children as the treasured moments of your life, and you’re not letting it pass you by. You are a warrior for your children’s futures and there is nothing that will stand in your way. You’re not going to pay attention to what “they” say.
Dear homeschool mom, you may be driving down the street in a silver minivan, latte in your hand, and Adventures in Odyssey on the radio, but inside of you is the bold, brilliant, fierce heart of a tiger. You’ve got this homeschool adventure by the teeth, and you’re going to rock it every. single. day. Keep pressing on and fighting this good fight for your children. It’s worth your time.
