Wait For It - A FlapJilly Snippet

And while Mama was working, I was sitting below her doing my work in a workbook.

What kind of workbook?  Letters or numbers?

Numbers, of course.  It was numbers.  It was Addition and.................. and ............ and........ .................and.......

(insert sigh, giant hair shake, and shoulder shrug before she looks back at the camera and says, emphatically

..... and Not Addition.

Oh. Subtraction?

That's it!  But Not Addition is the opposite so.............

and we moved on to another topic while Grampa and Gramma smiled at this glimpse into the brain of an almost-6-year-old human.

(P.S. Her teacher sometimes says "take away" just like Grampa.)

    1. I'm glad. Amidst all the sadness outside, their home is a sanctuary which soothes my soul. Her serious, thoughtful, not rushing it just searching around in her brain... then, deciding enough was enough and going with what she knew. I'm still grinning.
