When I saw the pingback in my comments, I wasn’t sure what it was. I clicked over and landed on Not-So-Superwoman’s site. Apparently she started a yearly award for “Homeschool Misfits”. It’s sort of a silly take on the Homeschool Blog Awards that The Post does every year. And apparently I was nominated for a Homeschool Misfit Award in “The Blabber” category. I’m not sure whether to laugh or be insulted.
I usually just roll with whatever and let things slide off my back, but I don’t know how to take this. I am NOT a blabber by her definition. I am very careful about what I share regarding my family! I won’t throw my kids under the bus just for a post. Never.
I get that it’s just supposed to be a tongue in cheek, sort of snarky take on the HSB Awards. It’s supposed to be funny. It’s just not funny to me. Some of the categories ARE funny! The “Perfect Procrastinator” and “Meme Forgotten” both could have described me, and I would laugh. Seriously! But I don’t. I won’t. I love my family too much to embarrass them for readers. I know a couple others who were nominated in this category too who DON’T do this either. Gimme a break. I am asking her to take my blog off of the list.
Update: Lori wrote an explanation clarifying how the Misfit Awards began. I get it. I really do. The nom just didn’t fit me.
