In Case You Wondered How We Raise Our Kid

Eli has taken to asking a rather disturbing question here lately.

“Who’s coming over later?”

Yes, that’s right, people come over to our house so often that Eli regularly asks who is on their way over.

He’s usually disappointed when I say it’s just us for the day.

    This is a good way to raise Eli. Keep it up. May

    Shoot. I’m disappointed when I tarry to long somewhere else and he’s gone to bed already. 🙂

    Tell him I’m coming over. Then when he says, “Who?” you can say “It’s okay, it won’t be for a few years anyway.” Then take pictures of his facial expression.

    Yeah, a few hours confuses him as does a couple of weeks. I’m pretty sure that a few years is outside his coping range.
