You know you are a homeschooler when …

If your child get's drugs at school, it's probably Panado.

At the end of a long day you can tell how the science experiment went just by looking at the house

You have meal worms growing in a container....on purpose

If you get caught talking to yourself, you can claim you're having a PTA meeting.

Talking out loud to yourself is a parent/teacher conference.

You take off for a teacher in-service day because the principal needs clean underwear.

You can't make it through a movie without pointing out the historical inaccuracies.

The teacher gets to kiss the principal in the faculty lounge and no one gossips.

If your child claims that the dog ate his homework, you can ask the dog.

School clothes have more holes in the knees than play clothes.

The principal can give the teacher a pat on the behind and it's not harassment.

Your neighbours think you are insane.

Baking cookies for friends and family counts as math, science, geography, history, and social studies.

You’ve done a week’s worth of school in one day.

The only dress code is, “No Nudity”

School starts at 8:30, 9:05, 7:16, 8:43, … or whenever you get up.

You got out of bed after 10 and still been done with your schoolwork before the public school kids get home

You realize it's noon, and you're still in your pyjamas

You still hang out with your 12 year old brother, even though you're 19

Watching the history channel counted as history class

You come first in your class every year.

You learned all your vocabulary from reading King James Version of the Bible

You greet your friends by saying, “How art thou this morning …”

You finish your school, and then think to yourself "Yikes! today is Saturday!"

You still go to school even when you're sick.

If you have any more, please add some in the comments. Would love to hear them.
