And then I use four pieces of tape and tape that damn thing up on the wall so I don't forget and he doesn't forget.
That weekly newsletter is my lifeline.
So little alarm bells went off in my head when I saw the words: TALENT SHOW THURSDAY. I immediately asked Alex what it was all about and he wasn't fussed. A little annoyed that I was asking about it, I think.
You know me, I couldn't let it rest. I had to find out, these things tend to blow up in my face. *See the Muffins With Mom's post if you don't believe me.*
"Hey Alex, it says there will be a Talent Show on Thursday. What are you going to do?" I was getting a little worked up because he was more interested in his computer game.
"Mom, I have it all figured out. I know what I'm going to do." And he went back to his game.
Clearly I had to get a little more creative. "Alex honey, do you think you could tell me what you're planning on doing for the talent show? Maybe I can help you."
My panties were in a total bunch about this damn talent show and I was going to find out what he was doing.
"Well no mom, you can't help me. It has to do with math and you're not good at math. I'm going to explain the difference between square roots and squaring a number. Take the number nine. Nine squared is eighty-one but the square root of nine is three. See the difference? Then I'm going to take questions and they can quiz me. It's math and it's going to be fun."
|Someone give me the answers.....please?!?|
To which I found my calculator, figured out he was right and said, "You're right, I'm not good at math."
And Thursday, I was in the classroom and I saw him do his talent and he explained the difference between squared and square roots and he had fun with it.
No, he rocked it.
The other kids and I, we didn't have a fucking clue what he was talking about but he was having fun.
No, he had the time of his life.
