“Mama? How nice do you think did I color this drawing?”
“A thousand”, I answered back as I know she likes to be rated in numbers.
“Papa? How nice do you think did I do?”
“10.”, her Papa answered without taking his eyes away from what he was reading.
“10? Why only 10? That is so few!”
“Yes baby. But 10 is the highest number for my rating. I rate from 1 to 10 and 10 is the highest.”, her Papa diligently replied.
“But why only 10??!”
“Sweety! Can you please help me explain to her why 10 is the highest?”, my husband turned to me.
“Baby? Papa gave you a score of 10 because that is the highest number for him. It means Perfect! 10 Stars!”, I tried to explain to my daughter.
“But why only 10?!! Why did you give me a thousand? That is even more. Why not more than 10?”, she asked me again.
“I don’t know. Ask your Papa.” – giving his responsibility back to my husband.
