I made pancakes for my daughter and The Girl this morning. The Sprout was sitting on the kitchen island, snacking on a single pancake while I was cooking others in the pan. Our conversation went like this:

Mom: “Mary, how many pancakes do you want?”

Sprout: “Two more…”

Mom: “Mary, if you have one (holding up one finger) pancake and I make you two more (adding two more fingers to the hold-up), what does that make?”

Sprout: “That makes it great?”

Mom: “Great indeed, but I would have also accepted three as an answer.”

Sprout: “Noooo… mom, it’s just great.”
