Homeschool Mom Universal Translator (HMUT)

Hi there, Mr. HomeScholar here...

It has come to my attention that homeschool dads will sometimes struggle understanding their wives.  Lee asked me to help explain the homeschool mom perspective to the dads out there.

Homeschool Mom Universal Translator (HMUT)


As a public service, I wanted to share my Homeschool Mom Universal Translator with your husband.  Could you please pass this on to him?  Consider it my gift to you. You might want to print this out and keep it in your wallet for handy reference.

Did you read my blog post, Disapproving, Insensitive Relatives Translator (DIRT)? This can help if you have other family members that disapprove of your homeschooling your children. 

For up-to-date information on how to translate your homeschool mom messages, check out this article: TheHomeschool Mom Decoder.

Blessings,

Matt

This is soooo true. I love it. The way the different spouse interprets things is so amazing.

That made me laugh so hard! I had to retweet it and post a link to our homeschooling forum. So very funny. Thanks for sharing!

We were laughing so hard we CRIED! It's weird that it can be so funny and so true at the same time, LOL! I'm not even going to confess how many of those I have actually said aloud!

Lee

Love it! It goes back to men wanting to fix things, but women just need to vent!

This is awesome!

I NEED more translators JUST like this!

I have heard a few of these (and mistranslated them...)

I have this printed out now and will make TONS of copies for my friends.

Could you make this into a power point/video FOR my husband? He won't read it and remember it otherwise.

My wife showed me this & we laughed out loud at this several times.

But just so you wives don't think it's merely a boneheaded husband thing :

I had an old preacher friend tell me one time that there were three parts to every sermon he preached --

1) What he said
2) What he meant to say
3) What you heard

Thanks for posting. This was priceless

Oh, Lee! I'm so glad you were not offended by my "Power Point/Video" comment. I'm sure there are more men like mine that seem to need the audio/visual more than the written
message. Although, I am tempted to send the written chart to him....

I vote we create a cheat sheet for all areas of life. We'll take it to the school store and have it laminated, multiple copies too. I'm forwarding to my lovely spouse now.
