School at home… with my almost-4-year-old.

School at home… with my almost-4-year-old.

You know, it occurred to me that I really WAS doing homework all day with my kids awake when Duncan began commenting on my homework. I was sitting at the kitchen table with my laptop, notebook, calculator and Duncan with a chair pulled up next to mine, his head in my lap or next to my shoulder, depending on how “tired” he was at that 5-second period of time.

I was doing solution sets in interval notation and suddenly Duncan (who’s almost 4, less than a week left) sits up and says, “Mom, you’re doing that wrong.”

I laughed at him and turned over to look at him with this very serious face plastered onto his little almost-4-year-old head. “Oh really?” I asked him.

“Yeah. You didn’t win that one.”

Apparently, Duncan has now figured out that when I enter an answer into the assignment on the math website, if a little box with a red outline pops up, that means Mommy got it wrong. When a box with a green outline and a green checkmark pop up, that means that Mommy was right.

So laughing about this as he continued to explain why I did it wrong, I finished up my assignment (I promise there’s no over abundance of red boxes when I do my assignments normally, I just really really dislike interval notations and solutions sets and the entire page of work it takes 9 times out of 10 to get to a possible solution). I took my quiz and passed 100% – Duncan sat up quickly and announced to the entire downstairs and possibly our adjoining neighbors: “MOM! YOU WINNED IT! OH YEAH!

Let’s see how excited he is when it’s HIS math homework… πŸ™‚

One thought on “School at home… with my almost-4-year-old.

  1. Haha, sooo cute! I cannot believe he is already four! I obviously have not seen him enough. Does this mean Olivia is seriously almost 6?!?

    Good job on your homework btw πŸ™‚
