This little imp ...
is just far too clever.
Earlier today I was adding up some figures. To be precise, I was adding 16 + 16 + 16, which I'd written in a column, not a row. Yes, I could have probably done it in my head, but I prefer to see things written down. I must have been having a brain freeze or something, because instead of the correct answer, I wrote 32 as my total. As anyone who's even half awake knows, this is only 2 x 16, and not 3 x 16.
Clever clogs, who was sitting next to me at the time, glanced over and said, "6 + 6 + 6 isn't 2, Mummy, and the answer is 48."
Not only was I quite flabbergasted at my own stupidity (and amused that it was pointed out to me by a five year-old), I was equally flabbergasted at his quick mental arithmetic. He'd added up the first column, carried one over to the tens column, and got the right answer in a flash. Go home ed!
Proud mummy moment :)
Until next time. x
