A little rougher than my way

Doing Math with Brae this morning.
We were going over borrowing from the hundreds place.
Me explaining this problem
454
-281
I told him "Remember you can't take 8 away from 5 so Mr. 5 goes and knocks on the door to Mr. 4 and borrows one for his tens place so he can be Mr. 15."
Braden says
"I know mom but my numbers don't knock they just beat up Mr. 4 and steal his number"

Kid has a point. Because soon it will be called Trading instead of Borrowing because borrowing implies you will give it back. I learned this from Keith's teacher, she said probably in the next couple of years it will be taught as trading

LOL that is just too funny! They are really going to call it trading instead of borrowing? Oh my talk about politically correct ugh.

It really isn't trading either because that implies something for both sides.

I know so they should do as braden does, steal it. Ohhhhh I should mention that about the trading lol. See what the teachers have to say about that lol Oh but you know that might imply that someone will get arrested and well you know lol
