I'm a smart girl. I mean, my brain may be getting mushier and mushier with each day I spend playing "restaurant" and "treasure hunt," but my sudoku addiction has helped me to retain some mental agility.
But then I try to explain things to a three-year-old, and I think, it shouldn't be this hard.
We are keeping a countdown in the kitchen, and every day we get to change the number to mark the days until Grandma gets here. As I wrote a 5 on the board the other day, I explained to Simon that tomorrow we would change the number to 4. He said, "When's tomorrow?"
I told him that when he woke up in the morning it would be tomorrow.
The next day, we changed the number to 4 and he asked me when we could change it to 3.
He looked at me confused, and said,
"But you said it would be tomorrow TODAY!"
I'm sure there is an intelligent way to explain it, but I just changed the subject.
