My youngest (age 6 and a half) has a game she like to play, something I sure many of you do with your kids.
It goes like this:
"I love you more," she says.
"No, I love you more," I answer.
"I love you a hundred."
I counter, "Then I love you a thousand."
"I love you a million-zillion-billion plus two!"
"I love you FOUR million-zillion-billion plus eight!"
In a fit of energy, she proclaims, "I love you more than you can think of and more than I can think of, put together and infinity! I win!"
Then she giggles herself silly.
I knew she understood the generic concept of infinity (thanks to lectures from her older siblings), but I had no idea she knew it went beyond the theoretical "biggest number there is, to no end."
The other day she left a note on my desk. It revealed that she's darn smarter than I gave her credit for. I don't know where she learned this:
Translation: "I love you Mommy infinity" (note the INFINITY symbol).
(Whose daughter is this again? Oh, yeah. Her dad's.)
On a second sticky note tucked under the first one, she added one more bit, just in case I tried to beat her at the game and also love her to infinity:
