Counting

Kiwi has a couple of the hard plastic toys that you might give a toddler.  Electronic toys where the child pushes the buttons to hear letters or numbers or sounds.  She likes the telephone one the best.  Thursday night, when I was at the Library my mother, Kay, sent me a recap of a conversation she had with Kiwi. 

Kiwi: (sing-song) 1….2….3
Kay: Kiwi, what comes after 3?
Kiwi: FOUR!
Kay: Kiwi, what comes after 4?
Kiwi: WHAT?!

Kay: Five, Kiwi. One, two, three, four, five!
Kiwi: Ok
 
I don’t think Kiwi knows what numbers actually mean, but I am certain she is speaking in context.
