1+ 5 = 6 Duh…

The Boy is assigned a homework packet
about once a week

Yes, in preschool.

This month the focus is math.

His assignment began with tracing the numbers
in numerical order
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Then came fill in the blanks
in numerical order
1 2 3 4 5
What comes after 5? He asks
I looked at him and could tell his little noggin was working hard.
His brows were scrunched.
One hand was on his head.
The other holding the pencil firmly
And I watched as he wrote his number 6

6, he says so satisfied with himself.

The number is 6 Son.

Yeah, 1 + 5 is 6.
I’m so not looking forward to spelling…

brilliant kid. lol can't wait till my nephew starts math.

Follow along through the fun and agony as we try to figure out how to raise two completely opposite teenagers- Teen 1, the fiesty yet inquisitive one, Teen 2 quiet but wise-cracking and our ball full of energy known as The Boy. It aint always pretty, but we’ll sure try to make the best of it!
These are the stories of our lives…
