I’m so thankful . . .
So very, Very, VERY thankful that FirstHusband helps FavoriteSon with his math homework. Here’s some of the conversation from last night:
(this was a pretty laid back conversation – there was no “tone” or irritation)
FirstHusband: Please stop whining about Pythagorean theorem, I’m not even sure it’s the way to go.
(what? huh? now I have to Google Pythagorean theorem. Thank you God that Google suggests alternative spellings, cause you KNOW I didn’t spell pythagorean right the first time.)
FavoriteSon: If I had an angle measurement, I could solve it. If I had a perpendicular bisector. But I don’t have a perpendicular bicector. I hate this problem, we’re never gonna have to use it.
FirstHusband: oh, stop whining. What do we know about angle bisectors?
FavoriteSon: They bisect the angle.
(well, I know more than I thought. I knew THAT.)
THANK YOU, LORD for my husband, his freakish math skills, his relationship with his son and his willingness and ability to help and teach. And THANK YOU LORD that I don’t have to help FavoriteSon with his math homework.
I’m participating in a month of Thanksgiving hosted by Rebecca Writes. If you want to join in, post something you are thankful for and then link up over at Rebecca’s blog!

AMEN and HALLELUIA!!Jim took calculus and physics and all that junk. I’m the English/grammar/spelling person, so it will work out well!
I am sooooo with you on this giving thanks. If not for Husband’s ability to communicate the alien concepts, my boys would grow up needing abacuses for life.
