Conversations with Emma- Bathroom Math
I actually got out of bed at a normal time this morning (as opposed to 10 a.m.) so I could help Da clean out the car. He was headed for a paintball event and was picking up two other guys.
Anyway, as I came back in the house, Emma was all excited;
E- "Mama, Mama, come in the the bathroom, quick!"
M- "Ok." (I was expecting her to show me a spider which is the norm)
E- "Go stand over there by the stool (step stool)."
M- "Ok." (our bathroom is pretty small)
E- "While I was going potty I noticed something. These squares here, no matter which way you count them they make nine! See-" She then went on to count a 3 by 3 square of floor tiles a few different ways.
M- "That is really cool! So if you have 3 squares by 3 squares it will make 9? Neat."
Then she went off to watch some Rugrats.
