Third Grade Math  
Incidentally, third grade is when math all started going to hell for me.

But I digress.

Yesterday, Aaron needed help with number sentences. When he needs help with actual math, he goes to his father. For sentences, mom is the one. In any case, AJ came up with the problem, 16 x 20 or something, and I suggested a word problem along the lines of 'he had 16 friends and gave them each 20 pieces of candy...'

Aaron. (looks surprised) Wow, Mom. You're good at math.

Carrie. (laughs, in a self-deprecating manner) You think?

Aaron. (considers) Well, you're getting better.

Carrie. Oh, thanks, kid.

Aaron. (yells from the other room) That was a compliment!




It's nice to know I'm getting better. I'd hate to stagnate where I am.

I hear:: The lawnmower. and it's not me using it. Good times.

Have you seen high school math these days? *shudders*

Stuff you learned in college is now ninth grade material!

Ogod you and I are really in the same boat. My Math sucks. And no, that's not an understatement.
