On, Doo, Pee, Pour

Little Cherub has discovered counting. She can now "count" up to ten, though she skips seven because it is a tricky word - if you can't say it, just miss it out, is her theory. We have a long way to go before she gets the idea of one to one correspondence, though.

"Cherub, how many feet do you have?"
[Points randomly in the direction of her feet]
"On ... doo ... pee ... [triumphantly] POUR!!!!"

It may lack mathematical accuracy, but it's very cute.

Our daughter does the same thing! She's almost 27 months.

I'm another middle-aged mother dreading being mistaken for the grandmother.
