Living in real time

One of Faith's favorite questions of late is - "Is that soon?" It usually follows another question, such as, "When is the fall festival?" While Misty is explaining the frequency of holidays to Daniel, I'm trying to teach my daughter the concept of time. We used to equate the length of car trips to "Barney" episodes. For the record, it was six Barnies to grandmother's house. Her festival at school is Oct. 27th. That's 752 Barnies away from this very second. I need another guide.

Hi Liz,

This sounds like my six year old, who by the way is an SJS student! She always wants to know how long it's going to take to get somewhere or how long we'll be at the dentist/doctor. In our case, it's compared with "That's So Raven." I love how their minds work.
