Domestic Bliss Report

Motherhood is hard work. If we don't stick together, we'll all fall apart.

If you say you've never done something like this...

And you've been a parent for more than 20 minutes, YOU'RE LYING.

Her: "Oh, this page has minuses too. What's six minus nine?"
Me: "You can't do that yet. You're not into negative integers."
Her: "Mom, what's six minus nine?"
Me: "Put up six fingers." Done. "Now put down nine." All six go down, a confused look occurs.
Me: "That was only six. You were supposed to put down nine."

She tried again. And a third time. She would have continued, but Daddy finally interrupted my evening entertainment.

Party pooper.

Cruel and unusual?! but I can't say that we haven't had the same discussion ending in frustration.

I can see Big Brother doing this to his siblings as they all sit around their math homework.

I can't say I've done this, but I'm not math-brained so Daddy helps with that stuff. I'm not above having a little fun with English, history or Spanish assignments, though...
