Look Mom, it's "Ametrica!"

Secundus said the above statement to me as she proudly held up her geo board.  She had put rubber bands all the way around, making a square, and then put another rubber band down the center diagonally.  I had no idea what she was talking about.  It sounded like she said "America" so I thought she was saying she made a flag. 

But then a little later she said the same thing after filling both sides of the balance. 

Then it hit me: she was saying "Symmetrical!" 

Obviously, Secundus has a speech problem.  The thing her speech therapist is especially working on with her right now is having "s" at the beginning of words.  When I finally understood, I was super proud that she had remembered our symmetry lesson.
