In the car, Boo (age 6.5, Kindergarten) wanted math questions. As usual. She’d been talking about how if she bought a condo, she’d let her friends live there, too. I asked whether they’d have to pay for water and electricity and such, and she said, maybe $50 per month. I said, if they paid $50 a month, how much would they be paying a year? No hesitation, she answers $600. Flat out. I thought I’d have to walk her through the middle steps a little.
I know it sounds like I’m bragging, but mostly I’m just amazed. Kid’s got the mad math skillz, yo. And it’s not like we did anything to make her good at math. Or, more importantly, enjoy math. Beg for more math. Momma, more math questions, please! Crazy kid.
