Disclaimer--this is a nitty gritty mommy post--if you have a weak stomach you might want to skip it.

One of the things that I love about homeschooling is the tolerance and patience it builds in both my life and the life of my children.

For example:

Today I was burping Sugar Pea while my 8 year old son recited subtraction facts to me.

Sugar Pea is not a silent diaper filler.

As she grunted away merrily her brother never missed a beat in his recitation.

He simply pinched his nose between his thumb and forefinger in anticipation of the smell that would soon follow.

For some reason listening to subtraction facts in a nasal tone amused me.

I didn't want to break his concentration however--so I tried to suppress my humor.

It didn't work--I started to shake with choked back laughter.

After a few seconds of this the scholar turned to me with a pained expression and said "Moooom."
