This is how the conversation went:
Calista: She looks in the cupboard for something to eat. "Hmmm, cereal, milk, orange juice. That's a breakfast 'normal' people eat."
Me: "What's normal?"
Calista: "People who sit down at the table, with their family, and eat breakfast and dinner together; who go to school; and their parents work all day."
Me: Thinking- well, we are clearly not normal:)
Calista: "But we aren't like that. You guys let us choose what we do and eat. Sometimes we are doing more important things than sitting at the table and eating together. We are together all the time and sometimes we don't want to be together eating dinner. That's what's so cool about being unschooled"
Me: So what percentage of the population do you think falls under that 'normal' category?
Calista: A LOT!!
Well thank goodness that we aren't normal:)
