Since DD became curious about addition, we 've been asking her questions that required her to add like, “If you had two apples and I gave you three more, how many would you have?”
Sometimes she just guesses, but most of the time she thinks about it and answers correctly. So yesterday I thought I would try a little subtraction with her.
I said to DD, “If I gave you 3 cookies and you ate 2 of them, then what? She thought for a minute and replied, “Then,...... I would have had too much sugar!” Too funny!
OK, maybe we’re not quite ready for subtraction and maybe she’s not a genius, but she sure is CUTE!
