Husband: “Hey N, show your mama what we learned today.”
N barely looks up from under all that hair on his head, which loves to cascade onto his forehead and just sit there. I work hard to resist the urge to scoop him up in my arms and bear hug his little body.
Husband: “What’s 2 minus 6?”
N turns his face away, feverishly sticking different [adorable little] fingers up and down, up and down, then suddenly looks me squarely in the face and declares: “MINUS FOUR, MAMA! IT’S MINUS FOUR!”

Jaw and utensils drop, eyebrows disappear into the sky.

He’s 5. (FIVE)
I’m amazed.
His dad is amazing.
