I also like that Escher over there but I like his one with the stairs better. It's pretty cool."

Her Counselor shook his head and said, "this would be weird if I hadn't had the same kind of conversations with my daughter when she was young. She was gifted too."

How lucky that your daughter's counselor "gets her"!
