Lately my toddler has given me insight into just how the younger set tracks time and while different than my approach, there still is some logic to it.
The other day she asked me to help her dress her doll and I said "Just give me two seconds" and she promptly replied with "One, two. Now can you help me?"
So I've had to resort to saying "Give me a few minutes" which buys me some time because she doesn't fully grasp the concept. However, she gets it enough to say "That's a lot of minutes."
And today while we were leaving a playdate she wanted to see her friend again. I told her we'd see her friend again next week. She said, "That's a lot of days!"
Yeah, I guess for her, 7 days is a lot of days.
