So here is the 411. Last night Quinn and I were working with Aiden on his 50 in a minute. It is this math homework biz that Ade is struggling with a bit. Now he is up to subtraction to 10 and it is not coming as fast as he is used to---so he is frustrated.
But enough about Ade, here is the real goods!! I challenged Q to a "math off." He just gave me this look--
--this "as if you even stand a chance, woman" look. The pompousness was oozing off his five-o-clock shadowed face.
Set the timer for one minute--and GO!!!
I was on fire. . .I was not focused on him at all--he is usually quite good at math.
-but alas, the quickness fails him.
I soooooo wish I had a snapshot of his face (a hard copy to share, not just the one in my head) when I threw my arms in the air. . ."DONE!!!"
He looked at me like I had 4 heads---his thoughts quickly turning to disbelief. Until the evidence was there.
Right there is black and white ( that Micheal Jackson song just popped into my head. . .ohhh)
And right in front of his recently fallen face. . .yeaaaa baby!!!!!!
So this first pic is after Aiden told on me and said, "dad, mom is totally going to blog about this." And Q smugly and sarcastically said, "why don't you take a picture and scrapbook it, baby."
I nearly peed my pants cause I was already on my third photo---so between snorts and kegals I told him to come in here. When he saw I was actually photographing the evidence he was "buggin hard."
I'll leave it up to you to guess which finger this is in the photograph.
This is a pic of round two--per his request after the first schooling. When he accepted his defeat and while he was trying to figure out how I cheated (cause, really, no way could I beat him THAT bad. . .)
The results. . .got him by 5! But probably more like 7. By this time we had an audience and I was trying to demonstrate sportsmanship. So I finished, quietly, and planted this giant smugness on my face that only Mr. Q could interpret.
Now if I can just figure out how to spell---- neeenerrr, neeeneerrrr, neeeenrrrrr. . .
I sure love you, honey, but never underestimate 'THE MOM.'
