I Love Pizza!

My son, Alejandro, asked me if I loved him today more or less than I loved him the first day I met him. If you know Alejandro, you know he wants an answer. I told him that I loved him 100%, with all my heart from the beginning. The difference being that my 100% has grown so much over the years.

Being a mini mathematician, he wanted to understand how that worked. I gave him a quick illustration: I asked him: What would be wrong with this statement? – You ate 100% of the pizza so you ate a lot of pizza. – He looked at me with crossed eyebrows. He was thinking. Oh, I get it Mom! It would be wrong because we don’t know what size the pizza is. 100% of a small pizza is not much.
