Let it be known, that I didn’t like 5th grade homework when I was in 5th grade….and I still don’t. There is simply too much of it!! And what used to come so easy to me when I was young(er) and bright(er), is now rather difficult to wrap my mind around. When I am called to assist the Oldest Girl with the mounds of work due each day, I am reminded why I didn’t become a teacher, and I’m not afraid nor ashamed to admit that it’s because I SUCK AT IT!!!! That being said, we do get through the work. Eventually. But it’s not without me wanting to shout several times, at the very top of my volume capacity….. “YOU WILL NEVER NEED LONG DIVISION! LET’S GO GET ICE CREAM INSTEAD.” 

Give it to me straight. I can take it :-)
