A few myths I travel the world debunking.
Ok, I do not travel all that much, and most of the debunking is done close to home. But still!
Myth #1- With all of those kids you must get up really early!
Um, no. It is only on rare occasion that I know what it looks like before 7 am. My preference is 7:30 am. My kids’ preferences are usually around 9 am. LOL They wish!
Myth #2- You have a lots of kids and you homeschool? You must be really patient! – The patience myth is also singularly applied to having several children and to homeschooling.
Again with the answer, “no!” 🙂 Patience is not one of my qualities. It really isn’t. I even yelled at the gas pump for telling to wait on my receipt. The lady next to me looked at me like I was crazy, but I had been told over and over again to wait all day long. I was fed up by then!
Myth #3- You must have come from a large family.
People from small families are not allowed to have large families? LOL It was just me and my sister. I have a large extended family, but military life does not let you really grow up around them.
Myth #4- With all of those kids you must be a very organized person.
LOLOLOL It is only recently that I have started to persue the whole organization thing. That decision came because of my survival instincts. 🙂 I am a packrat who has always thrived in organized chaos. I have really learned to control the packrat in me. Because organization does not come naturally to me (you should see my Dad’s house) I have really had to study, research and learn by fire (sometimes the fire thing is a “so to speak” thing and sometimes it is a real fire in the firepit. Because it is fun LOL). Things are getting better, but I would not want a professional organizer to walk through. *grin*
See? There I go debunking! 🙂
Any myths seem to follow you wherever you go?
