More or Less

Dawson came in to ask me if he could have another turn on the computer. "Mama," he whined in an attempt to sway me, "Aiden is having a longer turn than me."

"No Dawson," I informed him. You had 30 minutes on the computer and Aiden is having 30 minutes."

"Well," he thought for a minute, "Aiden's turn was 20 minutes and I ONLY had 30 minutes."

"Um, Dawson," I ventured, "30 minute is more than 20."

"Well," he thought again, "I mean Aiden had 12 minutes for his turn and I only had 20 minutes."

"Bud, 20 is still more than 12."

He shuffled his foot and twisted his lip. "Really Mama, I mean Aiden had 60 minutes for his turn and I only had 40."

"Okay," I giggled, "now you're on the right track.”
