(Subtitled: I Knew There Was a Reason We Had All These Kids)
The Boy came home early from school the other day, and being the lone "after-school" voice in the car, I heard slightly more than I usually hear while driving home.
The Boy: We had a problem in Math today and our family was the answer!
Me: (feeling slightly worried about where this was heading) Really? What was the question?
The Boy: It was about statistics and probability; you know, all that coin toss and 50-50 stuff.
The Boy: It challenged us to first, identify a family with six kids (NO PROBLEM!) and then, prove that one existed where it was not made up of three boys and three girls. I just looked at that and everyone else scratching their heads and wondered---what's so hard about this?
Me: (exhaling a sigh of relief) Oh! Good! Let me know if we can help with the multiplication unit...
