Is it normal that my boys constantly barrage me with addition and subtraction questions? They also ask me how to spell things, the eating habits of dinosaurs and the prerequisites of the United States presidency. Additionally, every morning while we wait for his school’s doors to open, Full Speed quizzes me on loose change addition. He grabs a heap of coins, spreads them out on the dashboard and then divides them by categories. From there we have to value the categories and figure out the sum.
It’s kind of exhausting. Maybe this is normal and the truth is I’m feeling overwhelmed. I’m fast realizing that soon I won’t be able to answer any of their questions accurately because they will fall outside my scope of knowledge.
Maybe it’s time for Mommy to go back to school.
