Alphabe Thursday, Y' is for.....
Happy Alphabe Thursday! We are almost to the end of the alphabet. It has gone by pretty fast and I have enjoyed the journey. The only letter I missed was last week and the letter X'...I guess I felt a little xenophobic about it or something. X just feels like a foriegn object to me. Anyway, I am back and ready to talk about Y' today. If you want to read other Y' posts, hop on over to http://jennymatlock.blogspot.com
Y' is for yesterday, today and tomorrow. Words that when you are four are difficult to grasp. I know this because my grandson Andrew is four and it is a real struggle for him. Point in case....A few days ago, I noticed about one in the afternoon that Cooper's dog dish was full of food...(Cooper is our big yellow lab)
We are careful to only feed him twice a day so I got worried when I saw the food sitting there,in the afternoon,that he might be sick. I know Andrew likes to feed him, but he has been told not to...
I said to Andrew, "Andrew you are not in trouble if you did, but did you put food in Cooper's bowl today?"
I could see him thinking about it...."Yesterday I put food in he bowl."
Ok, how do I figure this one out?
I said, "Andrew, was it today?" "Today was the day that you and Olivia pulled the radishes out of the garden ...you know, a while ago.."
The little wheels were turning..."it was one of the days, maybe tomoddow."
After going around and around and me trying to help and prompt, he finally let out a big frustrated sigh and told me "oh, I give up..." Then Cooper ambled over and ate all the food in his bowl and we called it a day....but not a yesterday, or a tomorrow....and I still don't know if Andrew fed him that day or another day.....sigh....Maybe when he is five.
