Pretend to be Nice

Teacher-Moms, on the edge…

About Michelle Kevil

Do you really want to know? Instead of boring you with this information in a time-line I’ll give it to you Alanis Morissette style.

 

I’m a bitch.

If you ever want to know what I’m thinking – regardless of what I’m saying, just look at my face.bitch

I’M NOT A POKER PLAYER!

And I can’t, won’t, and don’t care to try and hide it.

But that doesn’t mean that I’m not likable or that I don’t like people 😉

 

I’m a lover. admit itall my lifeThere is such a thing as a soul mate. We have the same taste in music, clothes, furniture, parenting styles, money, cars, colors, sour cream…ok, not sour cream. And can you believe there’s a 16 year difference?!

 

 

 

I’m a child.capricorn

I’m a math teacher, enough said, but it’s my mom’s fault – she’s one too. I’m also an only child (with 3 children of my own, 2 step children, and a daughter-in-law), and a Capricorn.I don’t have enough time or money for the amount of therapy I need for all those issues. Thank goodness I’ve rubbed off on my mom as much as she had rubbed off on me. Now I can just call the pro at the country club and put wine in her golf account!

your mother

 

I’m a mother.

It’s not that I don’t love my children, I just love when they are making me look good at someone else’s house – more. I expect a lot out of my kids…And I’m not into conventional parenting. (Much to my mother’s chagrins.)parent handbookMy children have started calling me by my first name because I refuse to answer to mom – especially at sporting events. I feel like I’m 10 again when they use my middle name. Besides – MomMomMomMomMomMomMomMomMomMomMomMomMomMomMom won’t fit on a name tag when I go to “a meeting”.

 

I’m a sinner.

chances areIf you know me, you know I’m never without a big plastic tumbler glass. In the morning it’s coffee, after working out it’s water, at sporting events…Who am I kidding…there’s always a chance of it being vodka – regardless of the time of day. And for the record – a bottle of wine fits in a tumbler glass. (Good to know for back to back soccer games!)

.

 

 

I’m a saint.

No comment, I don’t want to get struck by lightning and you probably don’t want to know my opinion on religion.

 

And I do not feel ashamed!

sorry

 

I hope you tolerate me long enough to laugh with me (or at me – whatever works)!

And if you know me – you know I have ALL 21 of these problems.

      Thanks! It’s honest and in your face (kind of like me) but that’s what it’s all about…(that’s why Andrea is so good for me, she balances out my obnoxiousness).

      Thanks! My husband and mother probably wish I was less so, but I’m afraid there’s no changing me now 😉 She made me and he married me. (sillies – both of them)

    I’m glad I got to drop by here because of your ‘follow’. And besides math teachers have a respectful yet terrifying place in my heart. Memories of math homework and exams …*shudder*

    Hi there, Michelle-
    Great About – I’m am in awe of anyone that can ‘math,’ for I was one of those ignorant children who said, “I like drawing, I don’t need to learn math!” You are intelligent, frank and funny – that’s the Triple Crown! 🙂
    I look forward to perusing your blog.

    I just found your blog on the Commons after joining the Blogging 101 challenge this month. I wanted to say hello, because I’m currently an assistant teacher who is trying to get her certification to teach Math, and have my second child on the way. But I love this about me page!

    • Kevil

    I have to call my mom by her name, too. After saying “mom” a million times with no answer first, of course. It all started when I was about 11 and my whole family (aunts, uncles, cousins) went trick-or-treating. The adults were decked out even more than us kids, and they didn’t want to get caught and denied candy so they forced us to call them by their names. Now I just think my mom is in denial she IS a mom (and grandmom!), because she’s told me that she hears my calls, she just always thinks it’s some other random person calling to their random mother (which makes no sense because on 99% of the occurrences, there are no other mother/daughter teams around).

    • Kevil
      July 23, 2014

      Selective hearing at it’s best! I love the “random” – I bet she has an exotic, very unique, one-of-a-kind name too 😉 I whistle to find my children – it’s LOUD and there is NO WAY they can’t hear it – yesterday we were at the water park and I saw them, whistled, and they kept running. Except their new little friends (and everyone in a 10 mile radius) turned and looked at me, grabbed my girls, and pointed at the crazy lazy shaking her finger at the only 2 people that didn’t respond to my whistle. Yep, busted!

      • Tempest Rose
        July 23, 2014

        Haha! My son only listens when he wants to. I can’t whistle so I’m kind of stuck screaming his name over and over.

        My mom’s name is actually Susan. But her personality more than makes up for it=]

      Thanks! I’ve learned to embrace what’s not going to change (ownership is empowering) and it beats the alternative 😉
