Neither Jon nor I love math but we want Buddy and Sweetpea to have a better grasp on mathematics and numbers in general. We try to find easy ways to talk about addition and subtraction with Buddy and this was a great opportunity. I was so glad to see Jon jump on this with Buddy and to see Buddy loving learning math facts. Of course, he doesn't know what math problems look like but he is grasping basic concepts.
Learning through life is the best way to learn and I was grateful to have an impromptu math lesson at my dinner table. Now next time, maybe we can work on subtraction with broccoli! "If Buddy has five pieces of broccoli and he eats two, how many are left?"
