Rose is doing preschool worksheets at home sometimes. On this page, she's supposed to circle the thing that is "last." Emperor is absolutely perplexed by this. Why are there piles of leaves floating over the ducks' heads? And why is the grass white? And how should I know which one is last? You can't tell these things. Yes. Rose can. I never taught her this skill; she just knows which one is last. She can also pass the "which one is different" test. Poor Emperor cannot. He will vociferously argue how all the things pictured could be grouped together, or separately, or it really isn't right to say that the smaller triangle doesn't belong because it certainly appears congruent to the others and ... the world is a genuinely confusing place for him sometimes. :/
Patrick looked at this page and started laughing his head off at one of the pictures. "It looks like these people are (disgusting activity)!" Oh my. It's a preschool book. But now that he mentions it, it sure looks like (activity) is going on every time I look at the page. Don't you hate when that happens?
