Skip counting

My 6 year old loves math and numbers. She especially loves skip counting in various patterns. Tonight when I was putting her to bed…

6yo: Mom, will you skip count odd numbers to 100?

Me: Sure. 1, 3, 5 (etc.).

6yo: Good job. Now by 3’s to 100.

Me: Ok. 3,6,9 (etc.).

6yo: Wow. Really good. Now by 5’s to a billion.

Me: What?!

6yo: Ok, fine, by 6’s. That’ll be faster.
