Rockstarism #265 – The Math Homework Rockstarisms

#265 Rockstar: This is the answer.  Me: Wrong. Rockstar: Wha-at. Me: (annoyed, because I told him before) You can't do that. If the first digit is smaller than the second in subtraction you can't just - Rockstar: What are you talking about? Me: Oh. Sorry. You didn't do that. Rockstar: <Snort> Me: Hold it. You don't get to be smug yet. I'm still checking. Rockstar: <Barely suppressed snort> Me: Y-eah. Your answer is right. You can be smug now. Rockstar: <SNORT> <SNORT>  Awhile later... Rockstar: 60+10=70. That is so pathetic. (I look at him in surprise) Rockstar: <hurriedly> Easy! I just mean easy. Still awhile later... Me: That really is wrong. You just lost your smug card. Rockstar: Who farted? Me: Nothing stinks. Do your work. Rockstar: HAR HAR HAR.

About Aileen

I blog about living and raising my son in Hong Kong - where toddlers have entrance interviews, parents keep test score spreadsheets, private school debentures can trade for more than half a million USD. Raising Rockstar's the most important thing I'll ever do. We show our true colors by the choices we make in bringing up our children. My blog is a message to my toddler son, about what the world and his parents are like today - for when he becomes a teenager and knows everything.

    Good that Rockstar likes more challenging Maths questions. Clever children usually gets bored with Maths questions that are too easy for them.

      Well… for these ones I think a lot of his classmates do these la… In this case I would replace “clever” with “smartypants” 🙂
