She can count to 10!!!!!!!!

Crazy eh?

I was sitting in the snack room at playgroup and counting the animals on a pop up toy with her (there are 4).

...and I said 1....she said 2, 3, 4....I was Gobsmacked!!!!!

later that day I was singing 5 Little Frogs and she counted to 5!!!!!

So I started to count from one...and she counted to 10...

My son could count to 5 at around the same age and sing his abc's...
but not 10!!!!!!


I needed to tell someone somewhere !!! I learned the hard way not to tell other moms \(

I was so exited with my son...that it was bubbling over and I was telling complete stangers...lol
other moms seemed hurt by it...like I was saying "my kid is better than your kid"
so, thanks to this forum, I can let some pride and amazement slip out without hurting anyones feeling.....
Thanks, !!!

Nope, no hurt feelings here...brag away! That's crazy! I don't remember when they're "supposed" to count. 2.5, maybe?

We're still hoping for a mama or dada. All Gabe says is "mo" when he's signing "more." :-/

I think she learned it from Dora.... Wish I could take credit for it...I taught my son to count, but my poor daughter gets not even a tenth of the time and attention he got...and still gets :(
