This was tonight's conversation with the girl while going over her homework for kindergarten.
Me: OK, pumpkin. You color the spaces that equal one green, two red, three leave alone, four yellow, and five brown.
Gem: OK, mommy.
Me: Now, you understand what you have to do? You have to add the numbers together and the answer is the color.
Gem (with attitude): I KNOW that, Mommy.
Me: OK, OK, just checking. So, *points* this one says three plus two. What does that equal?
Me: No, honey. It's five and five is brown.
Gem: That's what I said! Brown!
Me: No, baby. It's five and five is brown.
Gem: Right. Three and two is brown.
Me: No, sweetie. It's ...
Me: Ummm, nevermind. You get it.
I really wanted to go into an explanation that she was using logic, but I'm just happy the kid has her colors correct.
