Counting by Tens

"How old are you Uncle Sean?" one of my friend's 5-year old kids asked.

"Guess," I said.

"Thirty!" she chimed.

"Higher," I answered.

"Forty!" she exclaimed.

"Lower," I replied.

"Fifty!" she shouted.

"Lower the other way," I suggested.

She did finally guess the correct answer by counting down to the right number -- and each number was proclaimed with just as much enthusiasm as the first few. What fun!
