A friend of mine told me tonight that since I'm homeschooling now instead of teaching in public school I am not around any adults and am not used to adult company. I've been hearing lots of comments about my kids needing socialization, first I heard about myself lol.
Homeschooling suits my introverted nature. I can CHOOSE when I socialize, instead of being forced to because I had to take the kids to school and go to a PTA meeting, or volunteer for home room mom or whatever. I actually have more adult interaction now than I did before I homeschooled, being stuck at home with cranky babies who can't talk and a car that never had enough gas to go anywhere.
Why is it so hard for people yo fathom that some of us like spending time with our families. Dh and I rarely go out and if we do for only a few hours. I hate girls night out stuff. I am a married eoman, I dont need to party. Thats stuff I did when I was single. I much rather ho to play dates at the park or zoo or museum. If I really neef me time dh will watch the kids and I eill go shopping or to the salon.
Oh geez, some people are just...cute. Anyway, I am waaay more "social" now that my daughter is homeschooled than when she was younger and I was just a SAHM. Besides, how would sending your kids off to public school make you more social lol. Silliness!
Right now, without a car most days, i have two days of socialization lol, today was suppose to be one of them, but dh took the van :( thankfully tomorrow we will have company over. I think its hard for me to socialize right now because of the little ones being so needy.
