is thanksgiving almost here?
my girls are obsessed about "when" things are going to happen. when do i have soccer, when do i have dance, when will i be 5, when is grandma coming to visit, when are the missionaries eating over, when do i go to school, when is it church day....on and on. they ask me "when" 800 times a day. it wouldn't be such a big deal, but they have no concept of time. tomorrow is the same thing as next week to them! well, i came up with a genius idea. i bought one of those gigantic desktop calendars and wrote/drew pictures on each day there was something they would want to know about. now i say, "go look at your calendar" 800 times a day!! they are SO excited for thanksgiving because grandma and gwapa sullivan are coming to visit. this morning they woke up and started the "when is it thanksgiving" routine and i told them to shut it and go look at the calendar!!! they came up squealing because they realized grandma and grandpa are coming tomorrow. THANK GOODNESS!!! i think we're going to have a "when" free week...maybe!
