Friday, November 16th – evening
Daughter asks me to help her with some math homework. I say yes but demur because of course I’m furiously trying to finish a blog post because obviously I
am insane have a problem. Off handedly I ask if her Brother could help her? Unexpectedly he pops off his headphones, exclaims, “I can help her!” and hops down off the computer to do so.
I interrupt my blogging to watch in awe as he gets on her level, explains much more patiently than I ever could, and in the new math language they both are being taught that I don’t possess anyway.
He leaves her newly enabled to complete all her work on her own.
I pick my jaw up off the floor and ask you, what else could I do but document this too?
