Yesterday my son and I went to the city centre by bus. When we do that, we talk a lot about the buildings, shops, vehicles and other interesting things we see; it's something we can't always do when I drive him to places. At some- silent -point, little one looked at me and asked out of the blue :'Mum, how much is 3+5?'. 'Where did that come from?', I thought and answered. When he heard 8, he looked astonished and said ' Wow! Eeeeeight! I don't believe it!' Only God knows what he was thinking. At his age, I'm satisfied that he can count 1-10, sometimes more and recognize some of the numbers. But addition???!!!
