M: Sam let me show you how to make shapes - lets start with a square
S: I got it Marlie, I know how to do it
M: Sam you don't know how to do it unless I show you first
S: I got it Marlie, stop telling me what to do
M: Fine - Mom, I guess Sam doesn't want to know how to make shapes
S: Yes I do - I already did one - see, a pentagon!
Um yea . . . I thought she was 4 . . .
And not to be outdone . . .
M: Oh yea, well I can make 3 dimensional shapes like cubes and pyramids!
Um, I thought she was only 6 . . .
S: Well I bet you can't make a circle!
M: Of course I can't, a circle has no angles or vertices so there's no way to do that with toothpicks!
I stood amazed at the conversation that I was listening to . . . But my fabulous little boy brought me back to reality as he said "Look Mommy" and proudly held up a toothpick squished to the max with marshmallows and shoved it in his mouth :)
