What’s in a Hand

Amie entered the room with a puppet on one hand.  “What do you have on your hand?” I asked.  A seemingly silly question, I know.  But when you’re a parent of a small child you find yourself asking these types of questions, apparently in the hope that the child will then name the item in question, thus strengthening their vocabulary speech skills (at least that’s the going theory).

Amie held up her (non-puppeted hand), “I don’t know.”

“No Amie,” I began, “Your other hand,” I explained.

She withdrew her hand from the puppet and looked at it.  “What?” she asked.  “It’s another hand,” she said in puzzlement.
