The other day I was sitting on the floor of my circa 1840 parlor with my 17 month old daughter. We were looking at a photo of a family. I was pointing out each figure, “That’s a man, woman, boy, and girl.” I did that a couple of times.
Next, I asked, “Point to the girl.”
My brilliant daughter pointed to the girl in the picture.
Then I asked, “Point to the woman.”
She pointed to the empty foyer next to the parlor.
