Explaining Opposites.

While we were eating dinner last night, either Hubby or Myself said something about "opposites." Our ever inquisitive 3 year old asks, "Daddy, what's opposites?" He started to explain, then looked at me, how do you explain the definition of opposites to a preschooler. We Um'd and Uh'd for a minute then decided to give her examples.

The opposite of dark is light
The opposite of up is down
The opposite of day is night

Munchkins eyes were glazing over and she exclaimed: "I like Pink!" Obviously not picking up what we were putting down. We pressed on, this time asking her....

What is the opposite of Hot......? "Ummm... I don't know..." Cold, Munchkin, Cold.

What is the opposite of Boy......? "Ummm.. I don't know..." Girl, Munchkin, Girl is the opposite of boy.

What is the opposite of Daddy......? "Ummm, Right!"

Just when we thought she wasn't going to get it, the opposite of daddy, is right!! That's my girl.

For the record, I think that she was getting "opposites" and "adjectives" confused......
