It's a little overwhelming, really, how much our young children are learning and processing constantly throughout the day; letters, numbers, words, phrases, songs, thoughts, concepts, etc. Case in point, taken from our car ride home today:
Me: "Want to sing a song with me?"
Caleb: "A song?"
Me: "How about 'Twinkle Twinkle'?"
Caleb: "Tinkle tinkle, staaaaarrrrr......[silence]"
Me: "What comes next?"
Caleb: "[thinks for a moment] ....Four!!!!"
