Math for Breakfast

Last night the clocks changed. We turned the clocks back an hour and thereby gaining an hour of sleep. No wait. Only those without children gained an hour of sleep. The rest of us got up an hour early and spent the day normally. This morning the clock ready 4:55 am when Lainy Ann asked if she could color. Because I didn't feel like arguing I said yes.

So I drug myself out of bed at 5:30 am and found them not coloring. But this isn't one of those oh-no-they-ruined-my-house-stories. No, its ends much better. They were both playing in the bedroom with pencils and blank paper. They were making up addition problems and solving them. My 5 1/2 year old and my 4 year old are doing addition this morning for fun.

Yup, I'm bragging. But wouldn't you be bragging too if your 4-year-old was doing math for breakfast?
