Six Pennies

Tonight before bed, Ladybug was reading her Bob book to me.  She read, “Jon had six pennies.  Dolly had ten pennies.”  It was a teachable moment about math so she was counting the pennies in Jon’s hand and Dolly’s hand.  I was quizzing her about which child  had more pennies, and the difference between six and ten.  Then she pointed at the picture, and said to me, “Look Mommy, Dolly’s Mommy and Daddy both work, she had more pennies.  Jon’s Mom home schools, he has less.”

    Our church recently rented some underused space to a daycare. One of the rooms doubles as the Sunday School room that I teach in and through all of the changes I’ve had to re-organize our materials quite a bit. My daughter keeps asking me about the kids in the daycare and why they are there, how long, and why she never went to daycare. Hard questions. We are not homeschooling (yet) but have great respect for those who do…and similar penny shortages :-).
