I stopped by the Wozinski’s yesterday to discuss sharing our homeschooling duties. Boy, they sure aren’t very friendly all of a sudden! I guess just because their girls aren’t pretty enough to hang with Starling, they are blaming her for all of their troubles. Woo boy, look inside yourselves, girls, because that is where the problem is. And judging by their rude mom, I can guess why they might not be super popular!
At first I was all excited that if they were the ones blaming Starling for “bullying” them, then problem solved, I can send her right back to school. But do I really want her in an environment that tells her that her behavior is wrong? Just because she is so beautiful? I am not sure.
I was looking up ways to homeschool her online that wouldn’t cost ME too much time and I made an amazing discovery. Have you ever heard of unschooling? It is incredible. So basically you don’t have to do a thing and because children are so naturally smart and curious they end up teaching themselves! I couldn’t believe my eyes. I would have Merlin do it too, but he can be a lil’ much with all of his, “What is this article about Mommy?” or “Do you know what a supernova is?”. He exhausts me because, I don’t know and no and excuse me, I am reading my Us Weekly right now.
So we started today and Starling watched Judge Mathis, People’s Court, another court show with a cute hispanic looking judge, and 2 episodes of Cheaters. I think she might be a lawyer someday!
I am not sure if I can do this though. I kept forgetting that she was home and ended up running out for important meetings (a spa appointment, a meeting with a friend who is selling this incredible eyelash treatment, Pilates, and my acupuncturist) but every time I got home she was still watching these very educational court shows. I am so proud of her!
