My 4yo monster just randomly told me:
"Mommy! One plus two plus three plus four plus five equals fifteen!"

I'm so proud.
And really surprised 🤔

I've been teaching him basic math (adding and subtracting numbers 0-20), but haven't gone beyond two operations / three numbers.

    sounds like he's well on his way to devising his own little version of core math in his head. I used to have my own. They didn't teach that system way back then so I used to think I was the shit because I was the only one in class that could do all the problems in my head.

    Then college hit, I abruptly realized I wasn't the shit, my school was just extremely slow and I've now got to go back and learn to use a calculator if I ever expected to keep up 🤦‍♂️

    And here I am searching for a calculator to verify weather it's actually fifteen.

    I know, I'm not proud of my existence too.

    @M1sf3t this is me, all through elementary and high school Math was always my subject; Algebra being my favorite.

    Then college hit me with higher Maths and I quickly reality checked. What was even more annoying was that I had classmates that were actual geniuses and breezed through the subjects.

    But no, wasn't jealous at all. I'm still friends with those stupid fart-faces.
