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.

I know what you mean.... DD bought some multiplication and division flash cards that she found in the dollar bins at Target, and I know she keeps them hidden under one of her pillows.

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!

I can relate smile.gif

 

Do you or she need advice on how to help busy minds go to sleep or are you just sharing?

Advice is always welcome!! orngbiggrin.gif 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)!
