Note to self: Don't teach Liam about time yet
As you all know, Liam sturggles with seperating from me at preschool. I have to say that this entire week he's done fantastic! The other day I told him how I'd be there at 4:00 to get him and take him home. Yesterday he was trying to point to the clock and was talking about it. So I drew him a picture of a clock that said 4:00 and he happily put it in his cubby.
When I arrived to get him, he couldn't find the picture and so we looked for it. By the time we had everything together, it was no longer 4:00. It was five minutes after. And he had a meltdown. He hit himself in the head and threw himself on the floor. He said something about it will never be 4:00 and we can never leave now.
Oh my! I did feel bad for him, that he was so upset, but it was kinda funny at the same time. He was SO dramatic about it not being 4:00 anymore. I've tried to tell him that time keeps going on and that the clock is always moving and yada yada. But he isn't getting it. Poor kid cried all the way to the car.
