Counting in hundreds

Yesterday Abhay was revising all the numbers he knew. I further wrote down numbers in tens - 10,20,30 and found that he was keeping pace with me. As I wrote 10 he would pipe up "ten" and so it went and when we reached 100 he announced pretty proudly "One hundred" followed by a huge grin which just would not go away.

I decided to try going one step further and started on the hundreds -

100 I wrote and he said "One Hundred"
200 "Thats Two Hundred"
300 "Thats Three Hundred"

and so it went until I finally got to writing

1000 - he did not as much as bat an eyelid and there came a prompt reply

"Thats Ten Hundred"
