Crazy Counting

Bird is 4 and Bug is 3. Tonight at dinner Husband and Bird were counting fingers - discovering that 3+4 = 7.

Ever the Parrot, Bird was then holding up 3 and 4 fingers to Bug and asking him to count how many fingers were showing. He had no desire to count past one hand, so was doing his best to answer her so she would go away, but it wasn't going quite how either of them hoped.

Bird: Bug, how many fingers are there?
Bug: 1...2...3...4!
Bird: No, there's 7. Try again!
Bug: 1...2...3...4!
Bird: No, see there's 7! Try again!
Bug: 1...2...3...4!
Bird: No, there's 7! Try again!
Bug: 1...2...3...4........7!!
Bird: Good job.

It was so hard for us not to completely burst out laughing at that point.
