Math and Making Dinner....


Before I could tackle dinner on Monday night I needed to get the dishes done from Sunday night, yep, things go that way around here sometimes. The girls were a bit squirrly and needed some focus. Oh, math how I love that I can pull out some money, write down some numbers and keep Annie busy.


After finishing up the mama math problems Annie set to writing her own little word problems for Maddie.


As Annie read the problems Maddie answered with a tone that said "Couldn't you come up with something harder."

While the dishes were done and dinner started counting by 1's, 5's, and 10's was practiced, addition, subtraction and sentance writing were accomplished. Who knew that the answer to the perennial math question "when am I ever going to need to use this?" Would be "When your a mom and you need to make some dinner."
