Today's Laugh

Homeschooling mommies often hear complaints about how we let our kids do "whatever they want." With that in mind, I proffer a recollection from my Uncle Ray about our family reunions once upon a long time ago.

Roger Ebert is one of our family relations. I can never keep straight the connection; I think he might be Mom's second cousin. And yes, I mean that Roger Ebert.

So all the aunties are sitting around talking. "Hasn't Roger gotten a real job yet? Will he ever grow up? When is he going to stop watching movies all day and make something of himself?"


  1. Hi Susan
    My Google alert for my Tuesday blog post "Today's Laugh" (at brought your blog to my attention. Great stuff! Thanks for making me smile today. :-)
    Blessings to you and yours,
    Mary Pierce

  2. My dear mil had two mantras for her only son. 1)You were good at computers in high school. Why don't you get a job in that? (as opposed to playing piano, which isn't really a "job" and doesn't make much money.)
    2)You're so tall. Why don't you play basketball? :-)
    (more lucrative than playing the piano)
