I receive tons of questions about my personal life and beliefs. Here is a run-down of a few.
Do you home-school your kids?
My children are preschoolers and are therefore not old enough for regular school. I try to "teach" them every day, which I think shouldn't stop once they are in school. I do not plan on homeschooling them.
Are those really their names?
Slightly. It isn't what their birth certificates say, I'll say that.
Do you always eat well?
Nope. I laugh when I get this question. I sure do try and I eat better than I once did. I can't remember the last time I had a hot dog or bologna sandwich. I improve. I fail. I keep trying. I try to feed my children a variety of foods. Chips are no longer a staple food item in my household, which I consider an accomplishment.
What does breastfeeding have to do with an educational blog?
I receive lots and lots of breastfeeding questions. I do breastfeed and consider myself a breastfeeding advocate. I am very happy to help anyone with breastfeeding questions, and will point a reader toward more help if needed.
Were you a good student?
I was sometimes a good student. I could have been a better student. I was a great student in college and graduate school. I wish I had been a better student overall. Not only would I know more, I maybe wouldn't have so many student loans.
So, your degree is...?
