"Bear" up to Math... Challenge to Sleep.
Love runs deep in this little man. This is “Bear'“. He arrived in between his cousins, ‘She who wears Pink Boots’ and her little sister “Cutie Patootie”…you will meet her next.
Bear is blessed with math ability you only wish you had possessed in your early life. His grandmother aka OMA, gave us a number chart to put up in his room. Little did we know he had it memorized over the next year, so when he was in pre K, he knew all his numbers to 100. His teachers were stopped in their tracks… not many 4-5 year olds can count to 100. Through out the next year, he whizzed by learning about adding and subtracting. And thanks to television, he began counting in Spanish.
Math is apart of every sphere of our lives. Bear can play the piano better with math. He can be an accountant with math. He could even be a lawyer like his grandpa. Life is always full of choices and gifts. Math is definitely one of the best gifts he could have.
By the way, do you think there is hope of him grasping how the clock works with numbers? He seems to get up about 2 a.m. and parties and plays till 4 or 5 a.m. I really could use a good night’s sleep. That’s a challenge we need to solve soon. Baby Brother is due in about seven weeks.
