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.
