Last night I (Dad) was putting Kaylah to bed. We had read a story and sang the usual repertoire of songs. I was just putting her in her sleeping bag when I randomly asked her, “how old are you, Kaylah?” She had been trained to say, “two” by her siblings around her birthday, but I wondered if she would know the answer out of the blue like this. Her answer?
“Two. . . . ‘Liyah, ‘leven.” Wow, impressive, but she kept going: “Ri-Ri (Mariah), twelve . . . ‘Annah, thirteen.” Two out of three was impressive, so I asked about Joel. “Thirty-eight.”
I was perplexed on multiple levels, but got much more than I expected with a simple question!
