Every week Number 3 and 4 have to complete a Math Menu worksheet as part of their math homework,
and every week they choose the “complete a fact worksheet” in the Drinks column.
Today I was up in the office working with Mo.
From 1 to 3:30 pm, all the kids were at school except for Number 7 who was taking a nap.
It was so nice and quiet.
We were listening to music and getting quite a bit accomplished.
Then everyone came home.
That 3:30 – 4:30 time kind of sucks.
Mo isn’t usually here during that hour.
It’s a little bit loud and hectic and often difficult to hear yourself think.
Nothing like it had been a little earlier.
I tried to fend off the kids for a few more minutes so we could finish some stuff up before Mo had to leave.
Number 4 came into the office to request her weekly multiplication worksheet.
Mo, unfamiliar with the math menus, unconsciously asked what it was and why I needed to print it out for Number 4.
“WELL, EVERY WEEK YOU GET A MATH MENU AND IT HAS DIFFERENT CATEGORIES IN IT AND YOU HAVE TO PICK FROM DRINKS AND APPETIZERS AND ENTREES AND DESSERTS AND I TODAY I’M DOING THE MATH WORKSHEET AND I WANT TO DO A MULTIPLICATION WORKSHEET BUT MOM HAS TO PRINT ONE OUT BECAUSE OUR TEACHER GIVES US THE MATH MENU BUT NOT THE…”
I looked over at Maureen.
Number 4 was basically yelling in my ear and Maureen wasn’t even paying attention.
“Um, I don’t think Maureen is listening to you anymore,” I told Number 4.
Number 4 looked at Mo.
“ARE YOU EVEN LISTENING TO ME?”
You kind of lost me at drinks,” said Maureen.
And so goes the day at the Not Your Average Mom Corporate Headquarters.
