Anna likes to practice counting. She looks at her little baby fingers and knows they represent something. She likes to count. One...two...fee...eight....nine....yeven... on and on we go and she still hasn't left the first hand. One night as we lay in bed snuggling before bed she was practicing her counting and asked, "Mama wat dat one?". I couldn't tell which finger she was pointing to and asked her which finger? She said she wasn't pointing to her "fingo" she was pointing "dare". Anna was asking what number was between her two fingers. I told her that it wasn't a number it was just a space. That answer was not good enough for my Anna so she asked again. I could see where this was going so I came up with an answer. I told Anna that the space was 1.5. How many two year olds do you know that know fractions?
