Cooper seems to know how to subtract - when it's convenient for him. The other night he wanted some Cracker Jacks. We told him that he had to eat his dinner first. Not exactly what Cooper wanted. He wanted just Cracker Jacks for dinner. He finally agreed to dinner, and after he took a couple of bites, he declared that he was done. Don told Cooper that he had to take five more bites, then he could be done. So Cooper took one, and announced that he had four more bites. He then took another bite and declared that he had three more bites left and so on. Don and I were SHOCKED! After the first bite, we looked at each other puzzled and asked "did he just subtract?" He's only three!! And we haven't taught him that. Could he have gotten that off of TV?
