Math Whiz

Scribe was sitting in the living room one morning doing math. He had decided to do it on his own. I was impressed....finally he had become a self starter. Usually I have them do their math at the table, but this day I allowed him to remain in comfort. Why not? He was self motivated and that certainly warrants a little leniency from mom.

He sat there intently. I couldn't believe how long studying mathematical concepts was holding his interest. As I moved from room to room, he was still engrossed in that math book. Nearly an hour later, the boy was still studying his math. I was so proud.
Until I became suspicious. He had no pencil in hand and I began to wonder.....
Since when do math books contain "Far Side" comics? I think my self motivated boy is becoming a little sneaky.


  1. I had to catch up on your blog - great house. It is so beautiful. I need some help in that department - redecorating is not my thing. Love the sneaky boy - very clever he is. You may have to watch that one. I also LOVE the new haircut - makes you look younger, I think.

  2. I think he gets that sneakiness(is that a word??!!)from his mom!

  3. cracking up...too bad he isn't a self motivated math genius though...or perhaps he is and he was just giving himself a break with some lighter knowledge.

  4. What the verse about them lying from birth? Little Amanda is just as sneaky. She'll get up and bang on the walls when she's supposed to be sleeping. When I go into the remind her to lay back down, she'll drop down so fast and close her eyes like she was sleeping!

    What a trickster!


  5. Oh my gosh. That is tooo funny!


I love to hear what you have to say.
