Numbers! :)

I remember writing about what my son used to say for eleven…onety!! Now he is a bit older and wiser? so he has learnt to say eleven. The reason for this post is…his numbers now go thus – eleven, twelve, three teen, fourteen, five teen and so on 😀

It does gets you thinking that learning numbers might be easier like this…whoever thought of thirteen and fifteen??!!

on a different note…

My son is almost 3 years old now. Trying to teach him numbers. He seems to recognise most of the numbers atleast till 10. There are times when he just keeps saying something or the other…when he lists the numbers…it is not always in order…he just skips a few of them. That is not what is funny…but there are times when he goes “onety, nineteen, twenty, thirty!!”
Funny how the brain works right?? When I think about that…though I laugh when he says that..I think as to why it is ten, eleven and so on…why not onety, onety one, onety two and so on?? Might make it a wee bit easier?!?
Well if one can get used to Pluto not being a planet….why not this?? 🙂
As a matter of fact, I am still not able to say that there are only 8 planets…so I guess I would not be too keen on a change like this in listing numbers…still…something to think about right? 🙂
