Whiny Kids are torture

Why is it that Homework can turn a normal sweet sarcastic child in to a raging, crying, temper tantrum throwing, snot flinging 8yr old Lunatic?

I just don't understand how sometimes it goes as easy as pie and two days later you are still sitting with them at the kitchen table at 8pm doing normal addition. It's not like I am asking you to find the cure for herpes or genital warts or something equally disgusting. It's just fricken math for gods sake get your head out of your ass.
I am the type of person who says if you don't get it done then you go to school with out your homework.Right!!! But then I have images of wire coat hangers floating around my head and the good eye starts to twitch. I don't want to look bad in front of the teacher.
What really sucks about this is that I remember what it was like when I was a kid and my dad would get so frustrated he would just do it for me and my Step dad would sit there and wait out all the Banshee wailing that was going on. And the end of the Story is that I don't hate math I just suck at it. 
I am not the most patient person in the world but somehow sitting next to my child while she is acting like a total crazy ass makes me want to snatch her bald headed.
I am going to approach this problem like I would a war. With Strategy I shall plan it then proceed to strike when she is totally unaware and hopefully scare her little butt straight.

On a lighter note...I made pea soup today and it was deeeeelicous.
And easy peasy too...get it? easy peasy?

Makes a pot full with leftovers

2 Onions chopped
1 Package of frozen peas ( 400-600 grams)
50gr of Butter
200ml of light cream
1/5 liters of vegetable broth
200gr Bacon
Salt & Pepper
1 pinch of sugar

Brown your onions in the butter until brown
Add the peas and the vegetable broth and simmer for 15min
Puree the soup and run it through strainer
Add the cream
Salt & Pepper and sugar to taste.
Brown the bacon and add to soup.

Serve with bread

Told ya easy.

And once again another new topic....
My Amniocenteses went fine the baby is good and I still don't know what it is.
For some odd reason this pregnancy is different then the last two, for one I am falling down more and it seems that I am dumber then I was the last time. I am having problems with my speech meaning most of the stuff coming out of my mouth doesn't make a lick of sense.
And according to my Dear Husband he can't believe that my stomach is all baby and asked me today if I have gas. Nice job you A-hole. It still made me laugh by myself in the bathroom.
I am at 17 weeks I am bound to show sometime so I can't button my size two old navy pants so sue me.
Tomorrow will be a computer free day (which means at night I will be back on) so I should finally do something productive.
