That's the point!

Have you ever analyzed the reasoning of a 6 year old?  Here's part of the conversation I had with Julia last night  that shows how she relates abstract things to concrete ones she understands - cookies.

Me:  "Julia, who do you love more? mommy or daddy?"
Julia:  "2 of you."
Me: "No, just 1."
Julia: "Ay, 3  including ahiya."
Me: "If its just one, who do you love the most?"
Julia: "Mommy, if you're very hungry, how many cookies would you eat?"
Me: "I don't know."
Julia: "  So, if you're very very lovable, how many people can you love?  see? that's the point!" (speaking matter of factly)

     Anyone of you got her point?
