wHooligan feature - TaMara Sloan

I stumbled upon TaMara Sloan last year during A-Z. She writes about all sorts of awesome things related to homeschooling her five little munchkins - favorite snacks (some are seriously drool-worthy!), books, lesson plans, you name it. She is a creative person and I am excited to have her on the team!

TaMara's answers follow. Enjoy!

You're on a crowded train, and the person across the way from you (who is probably 20 years your senior) finishes a bag of chips, and throws his trash on the floor. Do you speak up and tell him to pick up his trash, or just let him go?
I would probably say nothing, but I would pick it up myself. Sadly, I'm passive aggressive that way. :)

Who would win in a fight: Jiminy Cricket or Tinkerbell?
Tinkerbell. She's a girl. When I used to teach in a public high school, I would say that I would stop a fight between 2 boys any day, but I would never step between 2 girls. I was too afraid I would get hurt. Girls fight dirty.

How far in advance do you prepare your theme and complete your A-Z before the Challenge begins? 
Last year was my first year doing the challenge, and I had my theme picked out in February and most of my posts pre-written by the end of March. This year, it took me a little longer to choose a theme, but I finally have one by mid-March and will have started pre-writing posts by March 20.

Are you smarter than a 5th Grader?
Since I homeschool my 5th and 8th graders, I certainly hope so. Most days, though,
I find myself learning right along side them. Often I think I'm learning more on this homeschooling journey than they are.

What makes you cry? (Emotional reasons. Onions don't count.)
I am an angry crier; when someone angers me, the tears start flowing. This is especially true if it involves my children and the mama bear in me is coming out.
