Pop Quiz!

Do you have your #2 pencil ready? Have you brushed up on your Algebra lately? Well, ready or not, let's get started.

1. A mother has 4 children. The youngest child is 2 years and 11 months old. The 3rd child was born 19 months before the last child. The oldest child was only 16 months old when the second child was born on October 17, 2002. There are 33 months between the 2nd and 3rd child. How old is the 1st child in years and months?

2. Each child made an average of 4.5 wet and/or messy diapers each day for 3 years of each of their lives. How many stinky diapers did each child make? What is the total of nasty diapers made for all the children combined?

3. How many diapers has this same mother from question #1 had to change if she changed approximately 70 % of those smelly diapers?

It doesn't really matter as long as she sees a light at the end of the tunnel when the last child actually POOPS ON THE POTTY for the 1st time and has had on the same pair of underwear all day because he has not had even one little accident!

Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
