Count On Me

Tess likes numbers and she is a good counter. She can count all the way up to 15, though she usually skips either 4 or 5 (but never both) and sometimes gets stuck at the number 10.

She likes counting objects, but she can't seem to grasp the concept that each item only gets counted once. And some never get counted at all. So she often ends up with 13 fingers and 7 toes.

I've been trying to get her counting on video, but she has to be in just the right counting mood and she's a reluctant performer. You have to listen closely.

Tess' favorite number is 7. Could you guess?

Wow! I'm really impressed with Tess' counting skills. I am almost as impressed with Miriam's very vast array of nail polish!

xxoo Nana

You are crazy-brave to let her play with nail polish on the white carpet. Says Maureen, who found the INSIDE of her toilet painted Berry Berry Red last week.
