It doesn't crack me up but I sometimes think it can't possibly be accurate for the same reasons you listed!!!! Yet I hear it's pretty good....

I don't think so but it sounds like your little one does a lot more than that.  I think people just forget what their kids did at what ages.  I think it also has to do with whether someone is spending time with them, reading, counting, playing, talking, singing, etc.  My almost 2 year old can count to ten by herself and can also count objects to see how many there are.  I don't think she actually recognized the number yet though, like if she saw a 9.  (Probably because we haven't spent that much time doing that.)  She also can recite her abc's but that's definitely by rote.

Just so you know, this thread is almost five years old. That 2.5-year-old is now seven, wherever he is.
