Me + Math = Head Asplode

I thought my 3rd grade math woes were pretty much over as the school year winds down. Who needs to do math at the end of the school year anyway?
Why do they feel it useful to include information that I don't need and then confuse me with the complexity of real life situations? Like putting cases on a number of shelves and knowing how many cans in the case. Anyways my head asploded as I was thinking to much into it and wondering why I needed to know how many shelves. YOU DONT NEED TO KNOW HOW MANY SHELVES. I admit I make things way to complicated than it really is.


On that note GB decided I needed a before and after shot of me helping with 3rd grade math. I concurred..actually it was my idea cause well I need the fodder he just took the pics cause he's a good son like that.


3rd grade math? I love it!

Not Really

I'll admit right here I'm dreading 4th grade. It's only gonna get more complex. Then there's that whole long division thing. You'd almost think it was me attending 4th grade in the fall and not my actual kid.

Hello ladies from MomBloggersclub Had I known you were coming earlier, I would have cleaned up the place a bit. Welcome to this side of crazy, stick around the water's just fine.

Me and math don't get along very well either. Which is why I'm extremely glad that Ron is awesome at math - he's the official 'math homework' go to guy. Of course even I can handle first grade, but I have the feeling that Abby will be (far) beyond my capacity to help before too much longer. :)

I just don't know what I am going to do when it gets to that point. I hate math so much.
