Numbers are relative


My three-year-old isn’t real keen on the concept of numbers, or even how to pronounce them properly. While reading the book “Minerva Louise and the Colorful Eggs,” we got to a page with roughly 200 eggs on it. I asked my daughter how many eggs there were. She said, “A me-yon.” (million)

The next page had around 20 eggs on it, if memory serves. I asked her how many eggs were now on this particular page. She replied, “A little bit me-yon.” Paul, father of 3
