"Well, *that* explains it."

The hubs sold his Bowflex this week.  His work has a Craigslist-like site where you can post things for sale or giveaway, and someone at his large company, that he had never met before, bought it.  Me, the hubs, B and my brother (who was over for a LEGO playdate with his favorite, albeit only, nephew) delivered the Bowflex this afternoon to the home of the buyer and his fiancée.  After carrying all the pieces into the house and talking with the buying couple, my brother, B and I came home and left the hubs there to help the new Bowflex owner put it together.

When the hubs came home an hour later, he told me that the couple was quite impressed with B.  They said that B was very mature and communicated with adults very well.  They were surprised he was only 9 years old.  The hubs was very appreciative of the compliment and told them that we homeschool B.  The buyers both said, “Well, that explains it.”

I love it when others see the great kid I love and he makes us so proud!

    That's wonderful! I wonder if Mike will one day admit I homeschool our kids when a stranger asks…I'm still hesitant to admit it to people myself. I automatically get the hesitant pause and then the…"No. You should let your children socialize and see other people." Grrrrrr…

    It never ceases to amaze me the gall that complete strangers have in telling you how to raise your own children! I think you should get some of those t-shirts we were talking about! LOLThe fact that you are out in public with your children for someone to make a comment is proof that your children "see other people". But as the saying goes, "The proof is in the pudding." Your children will speak for themselves just as Ben does. And I see plenty of kids at the playground that go to schools how cling to their parents or don't talk to kids they don't know. Can we accuse them of being unsocialized, too? Whatever.


Let me know what you're thinking.
