Just the other evening, while we were relaxing in front of the TV, Ethan suddenly brought his yellow Numbers book and said it was for Hannah. You see, Ethan has four favorite board books: the red Animals book, the blue ABC book, the green Words book and the yellow Numbers book. All this time, he has self-assigned the red book for himself, the blue book for Mommy and the green book for Daddy. The yellow book was unassigned till that day.
Anyway, I then asked Ethan to read to Hannah. And so he did.
He flipped to the addition and subtraction page in the board book, and started pointing and read aloud to his sister.
He goes, “Five plus Five equals TEN!” and “Four plus Six equals TEN!”
He doesn’t say the word “minus” though, so he goes, “Three Two equals ONE!”
