5 Ways to Love Your Small Beginning

My two-year-old daughter, Sylvie, refuses to say the number one. She first learned to count during our games of hide-and-seek by covering her eyes and repeating the number three: “fwee, fwee, FWEE.” Then at Christmas, my sister Amanda taught her to say the number two.
