Also, currently one of my kids is in the middle of a poetry unit and I'm not gonna lie, I HATE poetry. I never get it, EVER, and I often don't see the point. I hate it so much that it makes me feel really guilty because I can't even pretend to like it. Plus I feel really uncultured being a poetry hater. But I can't help it, I just am.
We also have a daughter that is a freshman in high school and she thinks that homework is a get out of jail free card. I constantly hear, "I can't possibly do the dishwasher, laundry, trash, (insert chore here), I'm WAY TOO BUSY." Well kid get used to it, we all are. Maybe that should be the homework: learning how to manage a house and a life and HOMEWORK! Wait maybe I should sign up for that since I seem to be having a problem with it all. By the way, if you happen to be a kid reading this, then go do your homework!
