HELLO HELlo Hello hello

Again with the School House Rock songs. This conversation happened after the "2 song".

LittleMan: "Mom, is fifteen times two 28?"
Me: "No. That is fourteen times two. Fifteen times two is 30."
LittleMan: "What's 20 times two?"
Me: [Holding up four fingers - two on each hand.] "How many is twenty plus twenty?"
LittleMan: "Four... forty!"
Me: "Right!"

[About 3 minutes pass in silence.]

LittleMan: "Mom, is 28 fifteen times two?"

I know he is too young to really understand multiplication, but how long do I have to feign patience every time he does this? Is two days too short?

Does anyone know the address to the complaint department for School House Rock?!

Next time, just say "Yes. Yes it is." and move on. They don't really do multiplication until 2nd or 3rd grade, so you've got some time to reverse the damage done by the. need. for. quiet.
