Over-rated Math Skills

This morning 6th grade and I were talking about what I call "our vitals"; whole names, full birth dates and place. When she was telling me about my birth date, she could not remember the year. I told her. I saw her little math wheels a-turnin' and then she announced with complete and utter awe, "Mom! You are over 3 decades older than me!"


And to think I have been working hard to help her to improve her math skills.

A couple of years ago, Anastasia made a mathematical error calculating my birth date, giving me a few years in the appreciated direction. I am careful NOT to correct her....partly because she is the sort to blare my age around at the most inappropriate times.

You make me want to homeschool again. Oh! Wish I could!
