Anna's first day of preschool was on a Tuesday. Since she only went
once that first week, I told her after bedtime stories the following
Thursday that she could go again in 5 days. She replied that no, she
would be going in two days. When Beth tells her after school on Tuesday
that she can go again in two days, Anna says, no, four days. We think
that she originally heard Tuesday as "TWO's day," and has named most
days of the week using a number. It probably didn't help that Monday
can sound like "ONE day."
It's interesting she assigned "FOUR days" to be Thursday, two days
after TWOsday. But I don't think she's that clever just yet… today I
said she could go again on Thursday, and she said no, in six days. Who
knows what the logic is - but I'm sure it makes perfect sense to her!
