The rules? Write for 5 minutes without stopping or editing...just let it flow.
The topic? If you met me...
If you had met me before, you probably would have said that I looked too young to be a mom of a teenager. I probably would have answered you, 'You're right. I am.' I mean, what else am I really going to say? Uh, no I'm not...
If you met me now, however, you probably would not say that anymore. Two more kids added to the mix can do that to you, right?
If you met me, I would hope to not talk too much and listen more than I talk, but I can't guarantee that. I always seem to talk too much and then wish I hadn't later. I'm working on it, though.
If you met me, you would probably be surprised at my (very) dirty-blond haired green eyed self spouting out commands and requests to my children in fluent Spanish, and you would probably ask where I learned it. I would say that I love languages and that I have traveled and that my husband is Latino. As if that matters, though, right? How many of us are married to people who are from here or there and don't speak their language?
If you met me, I am sure that I would tell you about my kids and how awesome they are and how proud I am of them. I would ask you about yours and if you are a homeschooler, I would love to ask you so many questions.
If you met me, you would probably find me a little odd and quirky...but that's just the way I like it, and I would hope that you would, too!
Whew! Times up! Let's see what fell out of my brain this time!
