Someday

Aaron tells me that we can have a lesson* someday.

On a rainy morning I tell him we can't go the park to slide and he says, "On Sunday we can go, right mommy?"

When he suggest that grandma is coming over I say, "No, grandma can't come to see us today." He looks outside and says, "But look mom! It's a sunny day! Grandma can come to our house!!"

Here's what Aaron understands: There are some things we don't do on Sunday. There are some things we can only do on a sunny day. Some places we only go on Sunday and some activities we have to wait to do when it's sunny out. And many, many things that we can't do today we may be able to do someday.

Someday, Sunday, sunny day, it's all so confusing.

He'll get it straight Sunday.

*We started having nursery lessons at home each Sunday evening for Aaron, with Evie and David as helper classmates. They ALWAYS end up being laugh fests because, like many three year olds, Aaron is unable to focus or make comments related to the lesson. Or do "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes" properly.

:D I remember a SUNDAY which was not SUNNY and Aaron watched his big brother make sacred vows to the One who makes the way for us all to be together forever SOMEDAY. xo

Does that mean my family will all be together Sunday? :) And can it please be sunny? There's more things to do on those days.

I never thought about how those three words are so similar. I wonder how confused my own doodles were for years! ;)

How sweet that all of you do nursery on Sunday's with him. =]

I love this. The best must be when all three collide!

I hate when words have to be so similar. My kids still get confused and they're practically ancient. If I made up a language it would be so much better. And way easy to learn as a small child. Because I'm pretty much a professional linguist, and therefore completely qualified to make up languages and then teach them to small children.

Lisa, you have got this amazing ability to understand your children - how they understand things. It;s amazing. It's so precious. I think your children must consder you their best friend.

Always funny the things that seem so clear to us that when you think about it, aren't really.

That's so cute!

I love that you're improvising a Sunday-night nursery for Aaron, and LOVE even more that the kids are helping!

Sunday I'll figure it out too...

A perfectly logical confusion. And I agree with Charette; a very cool improvision.
