Conversation with my 11 year old after we attended a great session on must-have skills for teenagers and almost teenagers.
Me: So many things for you to do and skills to learn…
Her: Amma, it’s not like you have it all. Remember the list that aunty made about how adults should have a mix of everything? Well, you have some things to do as well.
Me: Really? Are you saying I’m not perfect? Tell me one thing on that list that I am not.
New life goals – become irresponsible! 😊
Is school absolutely essential amma?
– Asks my 11 year old very hopefully, as she reluctantly heads back to school.
Lazy summer holiday. Non stop fun with friends and cousins. What more can I say.
Her: I like 9+3= 12 better than 8+4=12.
Me: Really? Why?
Her: I feel 4 and 8 are capable of so much more.
Me: *I can’t even…*
– Only my math loving daughter would think of numbers as having personalities. Hope 4 and 8 live up to her expectations 🙂
I never thought Microsoft Excel could be used to do math. I always thought it was only used to plan vacations. Atleast that’s what amma does.
– Exclaims my 10 year old to her father, looking at me accusingly, as she discovers a whole new world with him.
