Is the best kind… You can’t buy or drill the whole motivation and money counting thing and I’ve been eyeing the opportunity for a We Use Math For Everything In Life demo…
Also, a space shuttle recently landed in our living room…
USD 25 can buy some love.
Judging by the deranged look on my firstborn’s face, USD 25 can also buy happiness.
Occasionally you have guests on board….
And so all space shuttles should come with escape hatches, should visitors start pulling at your arm and t-shirt…
But ok, here’s the money shot:
Who knew space shuttles were great for stuffing lai sees for your mum over breakfast?
Thought it was a great chance for revising his school math (know they did Ways To Make Up 10 and 15 quite some time ago, in the end I decided to ask him to do Ways To Make 5 and then just added a zero behind everything, above).
Then, overheard at recent party: “What’s 51+52?”
Me: Rockstar, what’s 50+50?
Me: What’s 1+2?
Me: What’s 100+3?
Me: So what’s 51+52?
“Oh his math is quite good?”
Me: Where d’you learn your math?
Rockstar: In school and on IXL (school online homework)… <pause> and in my cardboard space shuttle where I count Hong Baos.
Ps: And here for more on last year’s lai see…
