-Crumbs in the butter
-When Troy puts his gross work socks in the hamper inside out.
-Wet towels on my bed.
-3yo little boys who won't nap and then fall asleep at the supper table an hour later
-People constantly posting drama on facebook.
-When SO sneaks change out of our digital bank for coffee, messing up the total! lol
-The foolish comments we get when people hear we're homeschooling "don't you worry about socialization?" lol.

I'm sure I'll think of more..

Just cuz you mentioned the socialization comment, do you do things to get them socialization or do you just figure they'll get it from their siblings? Cuz I've seen families that do both, and I'm just curious for various reasons.

I have a million pet peeves, and I was ticked off about people who don't understand the Catholic belief that I have that doesn't allow for birth control. But what I was REALLY ticked off about was somebody going on about "men telling us what to do with OUR bodies." I flippin' hate that line. I want to smack people when they use it, like a man can't have a valid concern about you aborting his baby. Freakin' weirdos.

My biggest thing I guess is this, who decided that "socialization" was being in a room for 6+ hours/day with 30 other people all born within 12 months of yourself, kwim? I want them to be able to socialize with all kinds of people (babies, kids their age, older kids, teens, adults..) and this is something that they learn from being in situations with those people. With that being said, they are around children their own age a lot too- Alyssa takes dance lessons, they play soccer, we do library story times in the summer, Rylan wants to play hockey when he gets older, they go to Sunday School and Children's Church, VBS, etc.

As for the belief thing, I totally get you! I'm not Catholic (although hubby is English Catholic), however, a lot of people question beliefs in my religion as well. And I've heard the "controlling men" comments more than a few times I totally understand the birth control thing too! Not that I would judge anyone who chose to use it for whatever reason, but it just isn't something I am willing to do.

Yeah, I think probably the socialization comments come from the fact though that a lot of opportunities for socialization come from school, even if they aren't done AT school. Like if you don't get out there and look for things (which clearly you are) you need something like a school to send home papers with ideas. I have some friends who homeschool who are always saying how they never get out of the house except to grocery shop and stuff...so their kids I think can't be getting much socialization that isn't from their siblings. They could be if their neighborhood is active, ours is not, so that's not an option for my kids. But I'm also NEVER at the house for an entire day...that'd be nice,

Other people who are morons when they drive really gets on my nerves too. Im terrible about it.
Seriously, if you can't stop at a stop sign. Use your blinker. Stop BEHIND the line (or people who stop way behind the line). Change lanes so I don't have to pass you on the right. Ooh and people who start creeping up to a light that's red freakin forever away!

When Lucy insists on wearing something that isn't weather appropriate, such as a sun dress in September or her winter coat when its like 20 degrees outside.

When I ask Lucy what she wants for breakfast, serve her the breakfast, only for her to start crying because she actually wanted something else.

Losing my keys! Has happened 3 times this week.

My dishwasher, simply because it refuses to work for me. Will work fine for OH though

Mickey Mouse Club house. I hate that show

Thought of one more!

When people, who aren't and never intend to be parents, offer their unsolicited advice in a really rude way. Drives me nuts.

When my 3yo DS, who has been dry for 3 days, decides to pee all over the place as soon as I put him in time out
