Baby Blue today offers instruction on how to tell the difference between so so big, big, and little big.
From our breakfast table, CG had a new approach to measuring liquid (not) drunk. She had maybe two sips of her minty chocolate soymilk at breakfast, and when she announced she was full, Politica asked her how much she had drunk. "A hummingbird amount or a cat amount?" I asked, when she just looked perplexed, clearly trying to find an answer that would suggest to Politica that much had been drunk when in fact, it hadn't. "A kitty amount!" she said enthusiastically, and hopped down. I nerdily interjected that hummingbirds actually eat quite a lot relative to their own weight, and she said, "Well, cats don't eat very much. So a kitty amount is small."
So there you have it. Measurement approaches from the small and mighty. Inches and ounces leave much to be desired --who needs to be counting all the time, anyway?
