Things you never thought you’d have to tell your child, part 1

“Don’t take your pencil in the shower.”


About Karen Joy

I'm a partially-homeschooling mother of six -- 3 boys ages 19, 17 and 15 years old, and three girls: 11, 8, and 3. I like birding, reading, writing, organic gardening, singing, playing guitar, hiking, the outdoors, and books. I very casually lead a very large group of homeschooling families in the Phoenix area. I have a dear hubby who designs homes for a local home builder and who is the worship pastor of our church. I live in the desert, which I used to hate, but now appreciate.

  1. I can’t say I’ve ever had to say that one before. 😉

  2. Okay, I do wonder what was he going to do with the pencil… 😉

  3. Well… it was my middle son, Grant. He’s in occupational therapy, and his therapist had just sent a small package in the mail that included a pencil with a super-mega hand-forming grippy, plus a special fidget on the end — a little toy pencil topper. So, it’s the King of Pencils, and he’s been carrying it with him everywhere. However, I had to draw the line with the shower. 😀

  4. That’s funny. My sister was always saying something similar to her son (who is now 14). The funniest one was “Don’t bring the dog in through the laundry-room window when he’s muddy.”
