Over lunch today we were talking about Easter. I mentioned how I hoped Munchkin #3 would be home in time to celebrate with us. Peanut instantly became upset and starting crying saying "I just can't take it any more, I want him home". Over and over again.
Mama really should have thought before opening her mouth. Chances of us being gone for Easter are greater than him being home by then.
Bug figured that one out rather quickly himself when he responded--"Mama and Papa need to go SOON for him to be home for Easter".
This prompted fresh tears from Peanut. It breaks a Mama's heart when she can't understand herself why he isn't home yet.
It was SO much easier when they didn't have a real understanding of time/days.
