WHAT IS IT BABY, ARE YOU DONE?
“COME HERE!!! I NEED YOU.”
Are you done?
“Yes, well NO, but I just need you to come here.”
Okay, okay, two seconds–OH, MY…What’s up dude? Are you done?
“Mom, do you know what five plus five is?”
(Oh….I see, your favorite starter problem. Every time.)
“What is it? What’s five plus five?”
“Wait! Don’t say, five plus five, one, two , three (counting on fingers), four, five plus six, seven, eight, nine…it’s TEN!”
Yup. Great job! You all done now?
“No no no no wait Mom, wait, do you know what’s 23 plus 42?”
You feeling sleeping buddy? Can Mama get you off the potty now, before you fall off?
(A telltale sign that my five-year old son is absolutely exhausted and about to pass out? He starts in on the math problems. Specifically while using the potty, usually right before he is supposed to take his bath…But he doesn’t always make it to the bath because before I can even grab the wipes, he’s slurring words and eyes are closing down, he’s gone. Off to slumber in number land…)
