    I love the words you make up, like suck-tastic. I’m glad I’m not the only one that does that!

    My mother wanted me to let you know that second grade was the grade with me that she also looked at my homework *math homework at that* and said I have no flipping clue figure it out or I’ll have to call someone else :)

    LOL @ M E B, I don’t think I can take credit for that word. I’m fairly sure I heard it somewhere…of course I have mom brain so I might be wrong :)

    @Marion, Yay! Another non-math-mommy! I hope you ended up better at math than we did :)

    When my son started 7th grade it took me 2 to 3 hours a night to try and re-teach myself his math. Twice I left the room, hid and cried because I realized I couldnt help my son with his homework. I didnt want him to know that I had forgotten because I dont use it in the “real world” (didnt want him to figure that he wont need it in the “real world” either) – so I pushed through and kept teaching myself how to do it until they got to a point where he understands it and for the past 6 months he hasnt needed any help on any of the new math topics (thank god!) and I havent had to re-teach myself and pretend I know what I am doing.

    @Jennifer, I totally feel you. I don’t like telling anyone they won’t need something in the real world either. But holy cow! Relearning math! For me that would be torture. Good for you for pushing through that :)

    Steph, Thank you for commenting. I’m trying to say something nice here, because I get that everyone has a different opinion…but I’m failing. Look, it’s parenting humor. Nobody should take it seriously. I appreciate you reading my work, but I’d love it if you read it as intended – i.e., without your panties in a bunch :)
