Me: Magical, this is a numeral 3. Can you find the card with 3 dots?
Me: this is the numeral 3. Can you find the card with 3 dots?
Magical: (moves hand toward the cards and then stops suddenly while making an electrical dying noise) oh no! My computer just died. The batteries are dead. I have to recharge. Can't find it 'til I recharge.
Me: Guess what? I have the secret power of being able to re-charge kids! Ready?
I put my hands over his head and made some noises.
Me: All re-charged. Now, this card has the numeral 3. Which card has 3 dots?
Magical: Oh no! My hair is too long, I can't see, I can't see- my hair is falling in my eyes, oh no, oh no.
Me: Why don't I help you?
I pull his bangs back (which are not long at all and are no where near his eyes).
Me: There, now find it.
Magical: Here it is. 3 dots. Phew, that was a close one.
**** really? Some days I think it is amazing that my head does not literally explode. ***
