Share This morning after cooking a delicious nutritious breakfast oatmeal for my kids my 5th grader was finishing up some math homework and asked me to help him with one of the questions. Something about factors and to the 5th power but all I heard was blah blah blah.
I replied with a "I don't know" from across the room.
To which he then responded with a very innocent and non sarcastic,
"How did you ever graduate from college when you don't even know 5th grade math?"
I pulled up short and went over and smacked him in the head and looked at him and thought:
"I iS sMarT"!
Nothing like having kids to help you feel like a total Moron!
So to answer the question "Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader" that would be a NO.
