I can’t help it if I didn’t take Calculus. Or Economics. Or whatever it is.

Loving Mother/Son Conversation:

Son 1: This stuff I’m studying for my midterm is pretty interesting.

Me: Oh really? What is it?

Son 1: Aggregation.

Me: What’s that?

Son 1: Blah blah blah blah blah. (I think I blacked out) You’re not even listening, are you, Mom?

Me: Of course I’m listening. You were talking about Irrigation.

Son 1: Oh my God. Please tell me I was adopted.


Happy Running!

Classic. This is me when my 7th grader wants help with math. No can do, sad but true, Ok probably like never wanna do ever again.

Just challenge him to go running with you!!!
The other day I was telling my boys about my Insanity workout and this push-up series…blah, blah, blah. Anyway, my 15 year old said, “I heard push-ups and quit listening.” I figure that the next time he starts in on the Odyssey or some other subject that I might have learned but no longer remember I will return the favor!!!

Just tell him it’s tapering madness. After all, they should be used to it by now!

I know, Marcia! I just get dumber and dumber as the years go by!

Carilyn December 9, 2013 at 3:13 pm

Kim, he is a runner and could probably beat me if he wanted to – he’s doing his first 50 miler in the spring. Sigh. Pretty soon I will be dumber AND slower 🙁

They never get used to it, Kent! 🙂

It’s not that I’m not interested – I just don’t know how to speak maths. Or computers. Or cars.

Completely agree, Char 🙂

Yes, story of my life around here. Our brains are filled with more stuff.

Rebecca, I wish I could use that excuse. I don’t think I could have ever understood any of it 🙂
