Math Fail

Pregnancy is measured in weeks. However, I don't think this is relevant because simple division applies to so many other aspects of life.
Gary and I have come to understand that division, that comes paired with pregnancy, is a daunting task for many. Whether one has had direct experience with pregnancy or not is beside the point. Case at hand: Gary's coworker asked him how far along I was. Gary's reply of "21 weeks" (at the time) was met with a blank stare, of course, followed by "How many months is that?" I could not help but to giggle at the exchange and make a note to teach our child how the wonder of numbers spread throughout all aspects of life. Gary lost all hope in humanity that day.
