How Many Eyes Have You Got?

Triops has Three Eyes is an especially popular song with our numerically gifted four year old. Graham likes to cuddle in bed with me before the sun is up and talk about what creatures are called that have one eye, two eyes, three eyes, etc. We go up to ten & then my knowledge of Roman/Latin numerical prefixes comes to an end.

This morning Graham asked to see a bi-op. "Honey, look at me," I said. "I'm a bi-op."

"No, you are not. You are not scary. Bi-ops are scary."

Starr, that is the sweetest thing! He obviously loves his mommy! I dont think your scarey either even if you were a tri-op! My kids missed out, I would have just told them the they had one-eye, two-eyes, three-eyes...Yours are lucky to have such a smart mom who can mix it up with a bit of imagination!!!
Hope your doing well. sounds like England is treating you well! I am quite jealous you know! WE miss you! Keep up the fun posts! I want to see pictures too!

Wow. That just made my head hurt. And I think that says more about Graham's intelligence than mine. (Think he's his father's son?)
