The logic of a three year old

As darling V bit into her chocolate penguin she looked up at me with her big chocolate drop eyes and said mournfully.
        ' But now that means the last bit of Christmas is finished' she looked so sad I couldn't bear it.
        ' Well, yes, but you know what comes next though don't you? It's your favourite?!' There was no hesitation with her response.
        ' The Easter Bunnies!!!' she exclaimed. She loves the bunnies, she was even convinced that there are Christmas bunnies and luckily the grotto at Liverpool One didn't disappoint.

The Christmas Bunny. I kid you not.

Anyway, I digress.
        ' How long is it til Easter?' she implored. I did an approximate quick calculation given that next week is Pancake day and the Catholic educated girl in me knows that Lent lasts 6 weeks.
        ' About 7 weeks'
        'Wow, that's not long, that comes after 6!' Can't argue with that. In fact I was pretty impressed. Then she started to count; ' One, two, three, four, five, six...' I couldn't face the disappointed face. 'Seven!' she grinned at me. I handed her a Creme Egg.
