As part of our bedtime routine, Gloria and I exchange our “favorite part of the day.” Tonight I told Gloria I was proud of how generous she is with her brothers, citing the example of when she gave most of her grape juice to Ezra tonight:

GLORIA: How full was Ezra’s glass?

ME: 3/4, or maybe more like 7/8.

GLORIA: Daddy, what’s an eighth?

ME: Half of a quarter.

GLORIA: So Ezra had 3.5 quarters.

ME: Yes! How did you determine that?

GLORIA: Well, to divide seven in half you take 3 and 3 and split the 1 in half, so then half of seven is 3 1/2, so 7/8 is 3.5 quarters.

I think it’s fair to say she gets the concept of fractions.
