When did 5th grade math become so hard!
I am here helping 3 of my daycare cherubs with math (never been my strongest subject). Man!
They want three examples of how they find the answer to each problem.
I am having difficulty finding one. That is even with the help of my daughter's $60 calculator. I try my best to look moderately intelligent. After all, they look up to me, right? I have a feeling that they can see right through my bluff. Funny, I am not very good at poker either.
I wish that I had paid more attention in school.
I was way more concerned with who was sitting next to me in my classes...what party I would attend that Saturday...or who I would be going to prom with.
Now, I am a thirty-something year old woman. Sitting in my slippers and clearance rack sweat pants. Dried spit up on my shoulder. Old snot rags in my pocket.
I am sitting next to a 5th grade boy eating a donut hole..and two girls with braces...and a date with my husband (the hottest boy on the block) planned for Saturday...and I still suck at math!
