My Mathlete

I love math.  I love numbers.  I have ever since I was a child.

It is tres nerdy, I know.  But it explains my career of choice, accounting.

Really, it was either accounting or an actuary, and I went with accounting because you had to take less certifying exams.

I love math, but I also love laziness.

I love math so much I actually use algebra pretty regularly to solve problems.

I love math so much I can't wait for my kids to bring their math homework to me so I can complete it, errr, I mean help them out.

Which brings me to the point of today's blog.

I picked up some Thomas the Train counting and numbers flashcards in the $1 bin at Target.  Big E loves anything Thomas, so I figured he'd enjoy all of the pictures.

Over the past two days those cards haven't left his sight. He even brought them to gymnastics with him today.

NO, TEACHER, I CAN'T DO A SOMERSAULT, BUT 2+2=4!

This evening he wanted to sleep with them.  The idea of 50 flashcards crumpled up in Big E's bed made me anxious, so I made a deal with him.

I let him keep one.

When I put him to bed, he was not curled up with one of his stuffed buddies like duck, or other duck, or other other duck.

He was curled up with a flashcard.

My heart flipped inside of my chest.

He is going to make an awesome mathlete one day!

I couldn't be happier!
A little trigonometry humor for all my fellow nerds.
