Can we all just take a moment

To appreciate the genius of this video? Yes? Okay good.


  • I read more books in a month than most kids with assigned reading lists do in a year.
What can I say? I love books!
  • I have definitely used the phrase "Hey mom? Can I take a break from school?"
Probably more often than is healthy.
  • I'm usually still working on a few subjects of school in the summer.
  • I've done two days of schoolwork in one.
Although, never so we could leave early for vacation. Usually it was because there was a fun activity planned the next day.
  • I actually thought that The Passion of The Christ was the first R movie I saw, but then I found out that Gladiator was R. 
This almost counts.
  • My parents did indeed skip over the parts in classic Disney movies where there was a part involving an evil witch. 
But this was only when we were wee little.
  • I actually don't have many non-homeschooled friends, but I am used to being asked why I don't go to "real school."
  • I know what the Silmarillion is.
I'm actually hoping to start reading it sometime soon.
  • I am filled with fear and dread when I hear the word "Saxon."
Saxon math and I are old enemies.
  • Having fun isn't hard when I have a library card.
If only we didn't have such crabby librarians.
  • My parents did sit us down after first watching The Wizard of Oz and explained to us that there are no such thing as good witches.
  • Harry Potter is a tricky subject in my family.
  • We weren't allowed to watch Power Rangers.
And I don't even know why.
  • I have laughed quietly at the "home-school equals home-work" joke. 
Waaay too many times.
  • I can quote The Princess Bride.
Although this is actually fairly new.
  • For the longest time, I couldn't remember the last time I ate fast food.
But then Costco was built in our town and now we eat it once every few weeks.
  • I know what a jean jumper is.
And I'm sad to say, I wore quite a few.
  • I actually finished the video. 
About three times.

How many of these apply to you? Are you homeschooled?


  1. Hahaha! I am laughing so hard! That. is. brilliant. And at least 85% of those are completely true for me.

  3. It's more funny when I realise that I had quoted an entire scene from The Princess Bride before watching this...
