Mom, can you read me a bedtime word problem?

I know we've talked about math before, but we are going to talk about it again.

When my son goes to bed at night, we read books together. We used to have this deal where he would read to me and then I would read to him, but he reads now as part of his homework time after school, so he gets to relax and…

He's got his Father's eyes and his Mother's algebra skills

As mentioned on this blog before, math and I have had a rocky relationship. I try not to talk to my son about it though. He is still young enough that I want him to acquire his own likes and dislikes at school. (So far: He doesn't like music class, but all the rest are fine. That makes sense to me - my son has never been much of a singer.)…

Go ahead and talk to me

I keep a few older videos of my son on my phone. I like to watch them and compare what he was like a few years ago to how he is today. One of the items that I notice right away is how he talks. Not necessarily how much he talks (although I notice that, too) but the way he pronounced his words. At the time I took the…

Endless battle: Children vs. Math

It is said that children, long before they start walking and talking, have already inherited and developed the mathematical gene within them, passed down from previous generations to the next. We are all born with the ability to logically inter-connect things and math is just a tool which enables us to carry out such complex functions. To put it plain, at around three years of age, we all naturally start to understand the simple notion that if you have one apple and you add another – you…

Adding up the little things

Our dinnertime conversations have become quite formulaic: We talk about the events of our days and if we are close to a weekend, we share any upcoming plans. (If it is slow going, I will tell a fanciful story about my day that features a dragon just to see if anyone is paying attention.) Some nights this goes better than others. We ask a lot of specific questions about our son's day, but we find that he doesn't have a good recall for the…

Why I'm "mean" to Girl Scouts

There is now a happiness equation

Whenever I used to ask my mother what she wanted for a birthday or Christmas, she would always answer the same thing: "Nothing." If pressed, she would tell me that all she wanted was for us to be happy.

It's the sort of non-answer that a lot of Moms give. Yes, parents want their children to be happy,…

What's the deal with New Math?

The image on the right (or at least something similar) has been circulating the web for a while now. Initially I thought it was just another silly share going around, but today as it was posted I decided to click the link included with the post. It mentioned something called Common Core Math Standards and apparently it's already "standard" in some schools. This makes me nervous!…

They keep changing the math

Google Is My Copilot


Remember that show, "Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?"  Well, it turns out, I'm apparently not.  You see, I happen to live with two of them, and I'm reminded of that fact nearly every friggin' night when I try to help them with their homework -- I swear we never learned ANY of this stuff until high…

Third Grade Math Can Kiss My 3.14hole

If you follow me on Twitter, you've probably been subjected to my bitching about third grade math from time to time.  Call me crazy, but I'm just not a big fan of assignments that make make me feel dumber than my nine-year-old children.  Cause right now, my kids think I know everything, and this math crap is totally starting to blow my cover!!!

Have you heard of KICKSTARTER? See what it is all about!

You might think that as a former teacher, mother, and orphanage volunteer, I would fully embrace the concept of “it takes a village”.

I don’t. I like helping others – that’s easy.

My problem lies in receiving. This does not apply to receiving support from my generous family, at that, I’m…

The difference between 9 and 10

My daughter turned 9 last week. This is the child who lives and breathes all things pink and all things Barbie.


As I decorated the house for her upcoming birthday party, she came up to me and announced that she had something very important to tell me. I stopped taping pink and purple balloons to the fireplace and sat down to listen to her. I looked into the serious brown eyes of my daughter as she announced that this would be her last single digit birthday. Single digit? Who…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
