My daughter has been asking me every day, numerous times a day when her birthday is going to be. "Is it the other day?" "Is it tomorrow?" I've been explaining and explaining but today I decided to show her. I did fall colors as her birthday is in October and wrote other important dates on the paper strips (9/11, Opa's birthday, etc). Her birthday paper is a totally different color (blue) from the rest to highlight it.
Besides doing something fun together and teaching her how many days until her birthday, we also discussed and practiced patterning of colors.
I'm hoping this will help her understand when her birthday is and stop the incessant asking. Love you Brookie!!! (Please excuse the pjs.)
