Gwen started counting a few months back, she championed 1 to 10. We slowly added numbers 11 to 20, and we even taught her to count in Tagalog, isa hanggang sampu.
Now, the little-miss-independent who doesn’t want to be taught can still count….only with some numbers missing. Whenever we try to correct her by interrupting or saying the numbers while she’s counting, she will stop us and say, “Gwen na!”. She will repeat counting all by herself.
So, ladies and gentlemen, let’s hear from our mathematician…
1,2,3 in English:
one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, teeeen! (proud na proud with conviction and a loud voice)
eleven, twelve, FOURTEEN, fifteen, SIXteen, TWENY! (at least slang ang 20!)
I don’t know where did the other numbers go…. yung 13, unlucky number siguro kaya tinanggal na nya =)
Isa, dalawa, ANIM, pito, SIYAM, sampu!
Saan napunta ang 3, 4, 5 at 8?
