Dearest Almost 6 Year Old Child Of Mine,
What happened last night was one I would like to forget!
The screaming, the crying, the complete meltdown. Really?
I promise I will behave myself next time.
I know I probably frightened you and you will forever be terrified of doing math.
Daddy will be taking over homework time from now on since I apparently can't control my emotions.
Even though you are now able to add 90+6 or 18+5 without a pencil and paper, ONLY USING YOUR FINGERS, at what cost?!
Have I ruined you forever. Will you shiver and sweat when you see numbers from now on?
This morning as you brushed your teeth you told me. "Mom, I get it. 19+5=24!!"
Yes, yes it is. Dear lord what have I done?
My dearest, heartfelt, apology,
Crazy Hormonal Mommy
