I was pleased to hear this little counting lesson and very curious to see what was captivating his interest. (Don't worry, this is not going to be a reprise of the dog poop story!) I slowly turned around - so as not to disturb him - and to see what was keeping him so busy.
You'll never guess what he was counting out so meticulously on the bathroom floor. Tampons!!
It was hilarious and so gul-darned cute, I wish I had had my camera. Now THAT's a unique substitute for pick up sticks!
I suppose when it comes to counting lessons I'll take whatever I can get.
