Introducing the Frazzled Chick

We'd like to introduce to you to The Frazzled Chick from Frazzled Mom and Friends. Welcome her with lots of comments and visits to her blog. And be prepared to laugh away as you read her hysterical post below!

My PhotoFrazzled Mom is a veteran (10 year) homeschooler in the suburbs of Houston, Texas. She enjoys wearing many hats including hostess, cook, decorator, gardener, encourager and teacher. She needs grace and forgiveness on an hourly basis. Her nerdy family enjoys an organized eclectic flying-by-the-seat-of-their-pants learning atmosphere and they are loving every minute of it. Teen driving lessons and ensuring everyone has brushed their teeth daily seem to be the worst part of it, so they are doing AOK. Check out her organized eclectic flying-by-the-seat-of-her-pants style blog at http://frazzledmomparty.blogspot.com/

Scientific Classifications of Homeschool Moms

After an exhaustive 20-year-study of the genus "homeschoolus motherus", scientists have been able to classify them into several main species. Note there are several sub-species, but this article does not cover those. There are some traits common to species which made the classification difficult. Cross-breeding has also yielded many mothers that exhibit traits from several species.
 
Healthfoodus - This mother will not allow anything artificial to touch the bottom of her shopping cart. She knows what essential oil to put on your boo boo. She owns sensible shoes and wears them to even the most dressy events. She has a huge garden in her backyard and is currently fighting the homeowner's association to allow chickens. She also knows the difference between a chicken and a rooster.

Politicus Activus - This mother has no less than ten pictures of her with various politicians which she proudly displays along with pictures of her immediate family. Her children have memorized the Bill of Rights from age 4. She is a pistol packing momma and a date with her husband might include skeet shooting or a trip to the gun range. Her FaceBook profile picture is the American flag. 

Curriculum Junkus - This mother knows every curriculum out there because she has purchased it at one time or another. She has a large collection of demo DVDs. She uses the homeschool curriculum fair vendor map to schedule out a plan to hit every booth. She brings a backpack for all the flyers and it includes her lunch which she eats while she walks from the 11:15 vendor to the 11:30 vendor.

Bookus Collectus - This mother has large bookcases on every wall surface of her home. She usually has two or three copies of several select books because she forgot she had purchased it or cannot locate it when needed. She has three books on her nightstand which she is reading simultaneously. She also has four sets of reading glasses which she can never find. If you need an out-of-print book, this mother has it. Don't confuse this mother with a curriculum junkus. Her book collection may contain some curriculum, but the presence of out of print curriculum will help you distinguish that this is bookus collectus and not a curriculum junkus. 

Smartus as a Whipus - This mother has a master's degree in something you have never heard of. She is currently trying to be a contestant on Jeopardy and plays various word games with her friends online. She has usually travelled extensively. These mothers usually run in packs but are quite friendly. 

Science Nutus - This mother has no less than three microscopes in various locations throughout her home. Any dead insect eye, wing or leg must be viewed through said microscopes. She has a sheep heart and cow eye in her freezer for future dissection projects. Test tubes can be found amongst her dishes. She has a family membership to the local science museum. Any moldy food in the refrigerator must be viewed by all family members and any unsuspecting visitor. 

Hot Homeschool Womanus - This mother wears full makeup to workout at her local gym. She will never be seen in "mom jeans" and doesn't own a pair of comfortable shoes. She will cancel coffee with you in a heartbeat if her salon calls to tell her they can fit in her eyebrow waxing. Her nail are always perfect. She goes on a cruise with her husband regularly.

Note: I'm a homeschool mom too. If we can't laugh at ourselves, we should laugh at each other. Smile. 

So which one are you?

  1. I loved meeting you Frazzled Mom! I would love to be a Hot Homeschool Womanus for my husband but unfortunately for him, I am a Curriculum Junkus all the way! LOL

  2. HAHA!!! I loved this! Probably the closest description for myself would be Hot Homeschool Womanus but not because we take cruises every year (can't afford or would), and not because I'm at the salon constantly. I am at the gym though 6 days a week and I wear makeup to the gym to cover up the undereye circles and bags that plague me from staying up late working on homeschool stuff. The last thing I need is someone coming up to me at the gym asking if I feel O.K. or if I'm tired (meaning you look horrible) :)
