Teach me more

I have found out the hard way that most of the things I know, I have learned from experience.  You can’t teach life.  Although school was important for learning the fundamental’s (math, science, spelling), It didn’t teach me how to become the person I am today.

Mama Kat’s on Mama’s Losin’ It asked us to list 6 thing’s that never learned in school.  Here’s what I came up with.


1) How to be a mom:  I love my kids.  unfortunately, they did not come with an owners manual.  I am not sure why they don’t.  Children are not easy to raise.  They are cute, even when they are covered in mud.  They are sweet, even when they are yelling at you because they don’t get their way.  They are loved, even when they are slamming doors and rolling their eyes.


2)  How to dance.  If you have seen me dance, then you know that I have no rhythm.  It’s really, really bad.  Imagine the worst dancer you have ever seen.  Times is by 100 and you have me.  No, I will not you tube it.  It would make you cry.


3)  How to get rich so that I don’t have to work anymore.  I have tried really hard.  I work and work and work and work…. Still, no extra money.  Every time I get a little extra, well,  have you met my teenager?


4)  How to sleep without the fan noise.  I must have some kind of noise to sleep.  preferably my fan.  The louder the better.  It can’t be a t.v, or someone talking.  It has to be a constant sound.  That’s why I love my fan.  The other night our power went out, so my fan went off.  I promise I did not sleep a wink the whole time.


5) How to talk to animals.  I truly believe that my pets say mean things about me to each other.  When I wake them up or feed them 1 minute to late.  I see the look they give me and I am sure there are a few 4 letter words they are thinking.


6) How to read minds.  My husband and my girls don’t understand that I am not a mind reader.  How do you teach someone to ask for what they want instead of expecting it.  Wouldnt it be great if I had a crystal ball to carry around with me.  If I did, I could give everyone what they want before they know they need it.
