How to explain the concept of "tomorrow" to someone who is not yet 2 years old?
The whole of today, Elyssa has been asking to go for her Gymboree class. I kept telling her that she has to wait until tomorrow. She accepted my answers but then will ask again after another hour or so.
So this evening, I tried a simple explanation. Something along the lines of : "Your class is tomorrow. Tonight, after you drink your milk and then you sleep, and then when you wake up in the morning, it will be tomorrow and then you can go for your Gymboree"
The outcome??? What she immediately did was to climb on her bed, loudly declaring "Eh-lee-sa sleep now", then closed her eyes for 2 seconds, then happily announced "Wake up already. Go Gymboree", with a big grin on her face.
oKAYYYYY......... I definitely need to improve my explanation skills !!!
