Tea has difficulty understanding time. Everything in the past is either “yesterday” or “two months ago”. Everything in the future is “tomorrow”. Since he’s obsessing looking forward to lots of great adventures (and the arrival of the Easter Bunny), he has been driving me crazy with incessant questioning about if it’s time to: visit Grandma Cookie, see if “The Rabbit” brought chocolate, go see friends, etc etc. I hear him say “it’s hard to wait” at least 8 thousand times each day.
So we made a paper chain calendar and pasted symbols on various links. A book for library days. Stars for playing with friends. Cars (and airplanes!) for upcoming trips. I think he might be starting to get it now. Each morning we’ll tear off a link and be that much closer to The Rabbit.
The colors corresponds to the Thai color of the day. I stole this idea from Courtney, who should share what they do with this.
Tea is a little skeptical about the finished project. He wants to know why it doesn’t have chocolate in it (like his Advent calendar) and why it doesn’t buzz.
