Dear Eli,

I know you counted 7 carrots on your plate, but I swear to you there really are only the agreed upon 6. You keep counting the first one twice. See how they're arranged in 2 rows of 3? You couldn't do that with 7 carrots because 7 is an odd number.

I am not trying to trick you into eating one extra baby carrot, and even if I were, that is not grounds to refuse to eat any vegetable whatsoever.

xoxo, Mommy.

Dear Eli--odd and even numbers are an adult myth. Don't fall for it.

So are prime and composite numbers. Complete bull-honkey.
