DD (6) is upstairs reciting multiplication facts as she figures them out.....
I hear whispers of 4 times 4 is 16....4+4+4+4. 50x2 is 100 since 50 + 50 is 100 5x6 is 30. 200x2 is 400
LOL. I had to go up there and tell her NO. MORE. MATH!! Go to bed.
So she starts to read by the light of a softy glowing teddy bear.... I confiscate said bear and books.
She tells me...."Mom you can take away my books so I cant read at night! But you cant take away my brain!!!" I had to leave before I started laughing.
I was hoping this crowd could relate so I thought I would share here.
LOL!! That's awesome! I can totally relate :)
Life is strange and wonderful. Me , DP , DS (3/09) , 3 and 4

I can totally relate! My ds1 did the exact same thing when he discovered how to add at age 4. The first night he stayed up until 11:00 (instead of 9) doing addition and I freaked out. I couldn't get him to shut his mind off. I thought this was going to be an every night occurrence, but thankfully, it wasn't!
Advice is always welcome!! Can't agree to follow it-- but like I tell my kids, the more you know, the more you can make an informed opinion.
Mostly sharing--- sharing with some local moms sometimes seems like bragging and really I just think it was both funny (today) and exasperating (that night)!
