Quick! What is 543,356 plus 999,999 minus 1,235,634,3434?

Well, that was a fun weekend. I spent two days learning about math. Remember math? Yeah, I did that all weekend.

Surprisingly, this is one thing that has improved with age. I can do math now. Go me. I might have a brain! (However,I should note that I think I would much rather have my cellulite improve at this stage in my life.)

More importantly, I will be able to help the babeola develop basic math skills as well as at risk kids (which is how I get paid for all this math). When time permits, I shall try to put together a comprehensive math skill post for kids.

Also,I have been tagged with a meme! Here we go!

-12354800079 but I used calculator, since I was too lazy to do it in my head.

The 6.9 yr old's fave subject is math (faves of both her parents, too, so it may be genetic). 5.15 yr old still likes recess the best.
