Each day, Griffin (9 years old) has taken great joy in setting the Countdown to Christmas cube calendar the kids recently received from my father and stepmother.
On Thursday, I was doing my end-of-semester grading from home and noticed after he had left that he had neglected to set it on his way to catch the bus to school. So I did.
My wife got Tabitha out the door later in the morning while I was at work in my basement office.
Later, I noticed that Tabitha (6 years old) had modified it.
Here I will pause to give readers a day or so to consider why. What might a 6-year-old have in mind that would cause her to remove the zero from in front of the six?
I asked her about it later on and we had a lovely conversation. I’ll report on that soon.
