Ever since Princess A started going to her grandparent’s house we would tell her you are going to your grandparent’s house this weekend. We thought it helped prep her. Now we know that was solely for our own benefit because this weekend when we told Princess A that she was going to her grandparent’s house tomorrow she got her suitcase, went to the door, and said “Bye, Bye”.
She ignored the whole tomorrow part and just heard “going to grandparent’s house”. After about 5 minutes of her saying bye to all her toys she threw a fit because her grandparents weren’t at the door. This is when she made the face above. I felt really bad but I had no idea that she would get upset because she has never gotten upset before. It shows how much Princess A is starting to understand.
So until Princess A can understand the concept of tomorrow I will never tell her what she is doing tomorrow. I have learned my lesson.
Any language barriers I need to be aware of when talking to my foreign toddler?
