Tidy-up time

Babess came home with a stamp on her hand this afternoon and was very proud of it.

“What did you get that for?” asked The Dad.

“For tidying up!  I putted away five things, that’s this many,” she informed him, holding up five fingers.

“What did you put away?” he enquired.

“I putted away some blocks,” she tapped one finger, “some dress-ups,” – another finger – “some toys” – a third finger.   Then she stopped.

He raised an eyebrow.  “What else did you put away?”

She looked at her hand and frowned, trying to remember what the other two fingers represented.  “Some… more dress-ups…” there was a length pause, “and some more dress-ups.”
