Whether you’re a new homeschool mom or an experienced homeschool mom, we want to honor you this Mother’s Day with the chance to win one of five $100 gift cards to (your choice of) Hobby Lobby, Christianbook.com, or the grocery store or restaurant of your choice!
You’ll find the giveaway at the bottom of this article. But I hope you’ll take a moment to read this article before you enter the giveaway! It’s all about 6 Superpowers That Would Make Homeschooling Easier.
6 Superpowers That Would Make Homeschooling Easier
I know we can’t really have superpowers, but what if we could? Take a few minutes to have some fun (something we homeschool moms sometimes don’t do enough of!) and then add (in the comments) the superpower you would love to add if you could!
Why should Marvel superheroes get to have all the fun? Point me toward the nearest radioactive spider because I have a superpower wishlist of my own!
If I could choose 6 Superpowers That Would Make Homeschooling Easier, here’s what I would choose:
1. Heat vision, to create a never-ending supply of sharpened pencils.
I am pretty sure my children use broken pencils as a diversion. This is probably my fault because the good pencil sharpener broke, and now all my kids have to work with is my eyeliner sharpener (which also appears to be lost more often than it should be). They are constantly getting up from the table and wandering off to find a new pencil which makes the school day last longer than it should.
Sure, I could buy a new sharpener or a bigger pile of pencils, but it would be so much cooler to be able to stare down the dull point at the end of the pencil in their hand and sharpen it with the heat ray coming from my eyes.
Maybe the heat ray could also light organic soy candles to give my homeschool a pleasant, healthy ambiance. Or perhaps it could even light a campfire to make s’mores! (Ok, I know s’mores aren’t so healthy. But they sure are yummy!)
2. The ability to freeze people, so there are more bathroom breaks in the middle of the math lesson.
Another diversion tactic that my kids need to give up on. No, you don’t need to pee four times in the twenty minutes it takes to review your math facts. If you did need to pee four times, we should probably just get in the car and go right to the doctor because there is something wrong with you.
It would be rad to be able to flip on my people-freezing powers, so the kids would sit and listen to whatever instructions I had for them. This would be useful not only during lessons, but also in the car, in waiting rooms, and just about any time I need to talk to the kids without them squirming.
3. Telekinesis. So the kitchen can be cleaned while sitting with the kids.
I actually really like cleaning the kitchen, but while I am off cleaning the kitchen, the little kids inevitably get themselves into trouble. If they are working on school work, they get off task. If they are playing with toys, they want to play with different toys. If my little one is doing art… he begins doing art on surfaces not intended for art.
It would be amazing if I could get the chores done without having to take my eye off of anyone or anything. Let me sit and paint with the kids while also unloading the dishwasher, thanks.
4. X-ray vision.
If you have teenagers, this one doesn’t have to be explained. My oldest is amazingly talented at having a game open in one tab of his computer while running his math lesson in the other tab. My middle child likes to put Pokemon cards in his books and look at them instead of reading.
So many applications for x-ray vision.
5. Telepathy. So we can figure out just what part of what we said you didn’t understand.
Sometimes when we are working on something, one of my children will become exasperated and say something along the lines of “I just don’t get it!” When this happens, I would love to be able to tap into their minds and see where we are getting stuck so I could help them get un-stuck.
6. The ability to freeze time.
As challenging as homeschooling the kids can be from time to time, this time of my life is so much fun. I love waking up and spending each day with the kids. I love their happy voices and their snuggles and the time we spend playing together.
Our homeschool journey is passing so quickly. High School is almost here, and I am not ready for any of the kids to grow up quite yet. If I could freeze time and keep them this size for just a little while longer, I would.
What kind of superpower would you have if you could choose one?
