    Seriously, I couldn't think of anything to buy for myself, but knew of several things I wanted for our homeschool. I've had it since April and finally decided curriculum was the greater need at this time.
    I could be given a Victoria's Secret gift card and if there was a way to buy something for homeschooling, I would figure it out.

    When back to school sales mean buying a bunch of glue sticks and drawing paper and that's it. For what ever reason I have not been able to find manilla drawing paper all year and now it's in the special school supply isle at Target. I'm going to pick up a pack every week until it's gone.

    My kids LOVE Chris Hadfield! They have both written him thank-you letters for his videos. (The one from the 3-year-old will be especially hard to read!)

    Your 12 year-old daughter's biggest angst is that you won't let her see LesMiserables.

    You have to stop and think at every school zone... Is it a school day for them, or not?

    You have to explain to your five-year-old what "teasing" means.

    The last really good book you read was about elementary math.
