about us...

I'm The Mommy, a SAHM to Maggie & Ellie. I'm married to Big Daddy, an engineer, grad student and our hard-working provider.
I blog instead of scrapbooking in hopes of preserving a part of our life for the future.
We enjoy beach trips, going to Church and spending time together...all as a family...because that's what we are.

We spent the day at the zoo, bless our hearts!

Today was Maggie's preschool "field trip" to the zoo. We all met at the entrance and then went our separate ways. Big Daddy went along and we made sure that we were far away from the preschool group. I like the students at the preschool just fine when they're at school. When you put them in a public place with their parents, things sort of go bad.

At the first exhibit, one of the parents from Maggie's class asked her if she'd registered for kindergarten on Tuesday night. When I told her that we were homeschooling, she said, "Bless your heart". It is a total rumor that you can say "bless your heart" after anything in the South and get away with it.
Big Daddy had never experienced the whole mommy unsolicited advice/opinion thing. He has now and he doesn't like it. I have never criticized people who send their kids to public school and I'd really like the same courtesy.

No matter what you do people will ALWAYS judge. If they are home they should be at school. If in public they should be private. And if private you are spending too much money.
