7Y6M 5Y7M 計算好き Like to calculate numbers





There are 12 cartons of juice on the floor. When Takara saw them, he counted, "i, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.... and 6 + 6 = 12, 12 cartons!"

When Arata came home later, he also started to count, "1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7..." then Takara interrupted and said, "because 6 + 6 = 12, they are 12!"

Well done, Takara. But usually Arata is much quicker in calculation, of course. Takara often learns from Arata and I'm often surprised to see how well Takara can work out with numbers. Arata started ask us questions like, "What's 8 + 3, mummy?" while ago. And Takara started to copy Arata soon after.

They never learnt properly but they know different things here and there, like some lines of multiplication table or additions of negative numbers. I really want to find abacus class for them!
