Our resident small person, Cousin Spike Jnr is a nerd.
It’s a commonly known fact, and one that he seems aptly proud of. He says he wants to be Sheldon when he grows up. Bless…
Like all kids, there are things he hates, and things he loves.
And he LOVES mathematics.
The other day, whilst waiting for his mum at uni (Sunday exams), I suggested we used her whiteboard for some sums (sad, but I know my kid). He jumped with joy at these mini conundrums:
And so last night, rather than read before bed, he begged me to do a math test. While did had his wash and brushed his teeth, I knocked up this quick test.
He floored it. Again.
Still not yet 6½, and in his first grade at school, he is sooooo desperate for school math lessons to ‘catch up’. As I have said before, I dread the day he starts calculus and leaves his poor old dad scratching his head.
