Happy square root day

Fortunately, Jacqui's week off writing filled her mind with words and the "get back into it" mood.

Unfortunately, she cannot send her son to day care when he feels so cruddy that he walks around saying, "My feel bad! My feel sick in my mouf!"

Fortunately, Captain Destructo does not have strep throat.

Unfortunately, he does have "sick all night with fever that's resistant to Motrin and Tylenol only sleep on a parent barfs all over wakes up in the morning ready to play and not rest while Mama writes" virus.

Fortunately, I am willing to take little smiles where I can get them. And today is a Square Root Day. And yes, these are the kinds of mathgeeky things that make me smile. So happy square root day to you. I am going to watch Sesame Street.

Hope your son feels better! It's nice to know that there are other math geeks in the kid lit world. Happy square root day! So the next one is 4/4/16?

Jacqui said...

Nandini, yes. And now I must spend hours wondering what I'll be doing then...

Candace Ryan said...

Best wishes on a speedy recovery for Captain Destructo!

My son must be having sympathy pains, because he vomited all over the floor this morning. He's back to noraml now, thank goodness!

I'm off to eat cubed square roots in honor of the day. Anyone else for carrot cubes?

And 03-03-27 will be cube root day.

That was one of the first things I said to my husband this morning, and it made him very happy to know it was square root day. :-)

Maybe I join you in the ranks of published authorhood by the next square root day!

Sorry about kiddo sickness. He'll feel better soon, and then you'll feel better!

You are a geek! But,I didn't know it was a square roots day and I love numbers. How old will Tinkerbell and I be on 4/4/16? And Destructo?

Hope Captain Destructo feels better soon...

I wonder who sits around and thinks up these fun 'holidays'...grin...

Jacqui said...

Candace, I did have three square meals today.

Ann: brilliant.

Amber, may it be sooner than that!

Anonymous, Tinkerbell and Destructo are never going to grow up. They are going to stay young and in love with their Mama forever.

Brenda, I want that job!

Sickness is going around! 2/3 of mine were home sick today... Poor little guys!
A happy square root day to you all! I was happy that my son came home from school to tell me that, too!
