Flash cards....

Tuesday night Jade brought home mount paperwork. In the midst of this stack, was a yellow paper they like to call "the agenda" or is that the little planner thing. Anyways, the yellow paper contians all of her homework for the week. It has a list of spelling and vocabulary words, the assigned reading for the week, the shedule, and any other important things parents might need to know. It says that every night she is supposed to work on "math facts" but it never said which ones they were working on this week, so I just kindof ignored it. Tonight, yes 2 days later, Jade informs me that we are supposed to go down to the dollar store and buy some flash cards.
I know you have never asked, but here is my opinion on flash cards:
You might be wondering why I have such a strong opinion about this. You see, at my house the flash cards come out. The kids play with the flash cards. The kids get bored of the flash cards. The kids spread the flash cards as far across the house as possible. The kids refuse to clean the flash cards up. A year later, I find a flash card in a place you would never expect to find flash card, for example, under the dryer. Now you know why I hate flash cards, maybe later we will talk about the evils of scissors and sharpies.
Oh! In case you were wondering, I have no intention of buying those flash cards Jade has requested. I will let you know how that works out for me.

Who needs them? Asking random math questions works just as well. Even over the summer, I was asking Brendan "What's 2+3" or "Tell me 6-1." And I completely agree with's just more junk around the house.
