Aurora and adding

Aurora just asked me what twenty plus twenty was. Before I could answer her she said, "No, wait, it's forty."
I asked if they had been practicing added two-digit numbers in school. She said, "No, I just remember I could count by twenties." She figure out in her mind how to add twenty and twenty without anyone explaining to her how to add two-digit numbers. Sweet!
