Math update

I guess Son had a better day at school today; he had to do the same kind of math problems he had trouble with yesterday, the whole class did, leading me to the assumption that Son wasn't the only one getting stumped. I know, I know, ASS U ME...but I'm already an ass, so there.

Anyway, Teacher sent home a return note (on the bottom of my note, how cheap) and expressed her gratitude for Husband and I helping Son at home. Then she put a big, ole' smiley face on there. Yeah. I threw it away. Apparently my sarcasm didn't translate into the written word. Oh well, I wrote that dumb note at 5:45 this morning, I can't be too sarcastic on one cup of coffee.

Tonight I made up a practice sheet of the "problem problems" for Son, and Husband and I both sat down and helped Son out. He seems to be grasping it now; all it is is "Write the number that is 10 more" and "10 less." Pretty straightforward, but Son tends to over-think this and gets all frustrated. Not to worry, Husband and I calmed him down and worked with him.

Here I sit, tired out of my gourd but smug with satisfaction that I got all the laundry caught up after having blown it off for the last three days. Not a pretty sight, but since I've been up since 4:15 this morning there was no excuse for not doing it.

Yeah, yeah, blah blah blabbbbbbbbbttthhhhpppppptttttttfffff....I'm goin' to bed!

I tried to read the "Shooting Off My Mouth Again" post but it just links to the same post, sort of a vicious circle.

I dread the day when I need to deal with some of these dumbass teachers. What can you expect from a profession run by a union?
