So Pepper, who cried all morning (and for the last 3 months, for that matter) showed her multiplication pictures to her dad. And because explaining something to someone else is the surest way to know it yourself, she now KNOWS all the facts for which we drew pictures.
From the kitchen, where they are rolling truffles, she calls to me, "Mom? What's 8 x 8?"
"You know that one!"
"Oh, 64! I made 66 mint truffles!"
