Conversation # 1
Me: If you had another baby brother, what would you name him?
Preschooler: Spiderman. Or He-man. Or Batman.
Me: If you had a baby sister, what would you name her?
Preschooler: Yeah. Lightbulb.
Me: Oh, ok.
Conversation # 2
Me: Time to go to bed. Tomorrow’s a big day (swimming lesson, birthday party, friends visiting).
Preschooler: Yeah, today was just a small day.
Me: Well, not really… ok. Love you. Goodnight.
(The Next Day)
Me: Good morning!
Preschooler: Mama, is today tomorrow? Cuz you said tomorrow is the big day.
Me: Um, sort if. Tomorrow transformed into today, and now today is today, and tomorrow will be tomorrow.
Preschooler: What about the big day?
Me: That’s today.
