We were discussing her fourth birthday party (after all, it's only six months away).
I asked who was going to be at the party.
Counting them off on her fingers, one by one, Summy says
"Alicia, and Brad, and Cathy, and Dylan (names changed to protect identity :))..."
Me: And who else?
Summy: And Elizabeth, and Freddie, and Gena, and Harini, and...
Me: Who else?
Summy: And Ian, and Julie.
Me: (waiting for her to list all her classmates' names) And?
Me: And Kristin?
Summy: No, not Kristin.
I was shocked at the exclusion.
"But Kristin was at your last birthday party, and you had so much fun."
Summy: Not Kristin.
Me: But Summy, that will make Kristin sad!
Summy: But Mommy, I have no more fingers!
So that's why :) She had already counted off her ten fingers.
