What child refers to her birthday in terms of digits? Does this mean she really had been paying attention in math class?

 

I was informed that once she turns double digits she will no longer be interested in toys. An easily fooled mommy might have looked at this declaration as an opportunity to save money on future birthday gifts but I knew better. This announcement had dollar signs written all over it.

"I can't help it if they didn't have technology until you were an old woman." She said.
