There's a boy I know...


 
I freaking love this kid.
 
Now that he doesn't have to help me read, he insists on doing his homework after supper. It helps a lot that the homework is math. So, last night, we're doing homework. He searched this house top to bottom for a red and yellow crayon because it had to be red and yellow like the other ones. Top to bottom. That boy was not giving up.
 
He finally finds them and goes on with his homework. He shows me this...
 
 
I looked. and looked again. I said, Buddy,
1,2,3,4,5... 1,2,3,4,5... 5+5=10.
1,2,3,4,5... 1,2,3,4,5... 5+5=10.
It's the same."
 
He gives me this look...


 
and says, "but different."
 
well, ok.
