Understanding more than we thought

Last week we were at Mersina’s grandparents’ house and were all sitting around the dining table at nearly the end of the meal. Grandma was standing and M kept looking at her. Uncle James had come in and taken her seat.

“I don’t have a chair Mersina” she explained. M looked down at her own and then around the table before pointing behind grandma at a chair just a little apart from the ones at the table. “Ay-ee” she pointed out and was right. There was an empty chair.

I found it astonishing that she understood that much.
