The Horror!

I promised myself that I would *never* do this, but I did. I couldn't stop myself. The twins were complaining, yet again, about the fact that they were expected to work on the exact same math page at the same time, not to mention having to write down some of the answers instead of doing it all orally.

Finally, I blurted out, "You know, in regular school, the kids all have to do the same math page. Twenty or thirty of them."

Dash: "They do? Not at the same time, though?"

"Yes, at the same time."

Dot: "Well, not the same page."

"OK, technically not, but copies of the same page. And they have to write in all the answers by themselves."

Dash: "I never, ever want to go to regular school."

Oh, yes! I wasn't ever going to do this either, but... really? You (my kid) are complaining about 5 multiplication questions? Really?!

Unfortunately for my younger kids, the older kids referred to "away school" as jail. Then we went to a parish where you had to walk through part of the school to get to the church and they had the classrooms gated off with metal bars. You can guess how that went over: school really IS jail!

The Horror, indeed!
