...And I'll Cry if I Want To....

I've mentioned it on the blog before, but I am currently involved with a man who has a child. He's not a weekend daddy, as he basically maintains full custody of his 6 year old daughter, who I will be referring to as Spawn of Bauer. Bauer was at the gym one afternoon, so I was babysitting Spawn of Bauer. She was being difficult and I was strugging to get to the root of the problem:

The BLS: Spawn of Bauer, why are you crying? Aren't you excited to be starting school tomorrow?
Spawn of Bauer: (crying) NO!
The BLS: Why not? When I was your age, I loved school! I still love school, because I'm still going! Why are you so upset?
Spawn of Bauer: (still crying) Because I'm going to have to learn math! (throws herself down on the bed theatrically)

It was hard to keep a straight face after that.

I love math. But I have one girl who hates it, and one who loves it.
I also have a favorite daughter. But that part is a secret. Shhhh.

Awww...I totally feel Spawn! If I knew the horrors of math that would be forced upon my education, I never would've gone!

Hi! Like your blog! I don`t know how I came over it, I just googled something on the internet and suddenly I saw the words "bitterlawstudent" etc and thought it was kind of fascinating! I am a law student myself, on my 4th year. In Norway, Europe. I have a blog too, but I guess you wouldn`t understand any of it since I write in norwegian... :) Good luck with your studies!

If she's really feeling some apprehension about math, her dad should make sure to talk to the teacher about it. Things like this are good for a teacher to know.
