Am cooking, and various characters are all studiously working on their respective academic levels.
Munchkin comes to show me her completed work. Her math sheet had this question:
“There are 2 red blocks, 3 green blocks and 4 blue blocks on the floor. How many blocks are there on the floor?”
She had a neat “9” next to it.
I say: Good job.
She: *smiles large*
I: So tell me, how did you do that?
She: * makes those large eyes even rounder, and with a smug expression on her face* By Math.
I: haha, no, munchkin, I meant how did you calculate that? How did you come up with the number 9?
She: *throws the clipboard down, thrusts her tiny fingers at me, wiggles them furiously*: By my fingers!
..and that’s how the ball rolls.
