Another day, he was supposed to be learning to count by 10s. However, he interrupted my drilling to ask, "Hey Mom! Can you count by 90s to 10?" I find that it is always interesting to see what is going on in his mind although I was inwardly groaning, "He doesn't get it!" Out loud I said, "I'm not sure. How do you do that?" He proceeded to count: "90...80...70...60...50...40...30...20...10." I was speechless. And you know what a rarity that is!
A recent question from him: "Mommy, you know why God made Memaws and Papaws?" I didn't...exactly...so he answered: "So if you have four kids, two can sit by Mommy and Daddy and the other two still have somebody to sit by." At least that's the way it works around here!
