"I'm Eloise and I am 6"
I have been working with Little Bean on saying, "I am 2" or "2 and a half" ... but I have failed. And now she has changed her name to her favorite book hero!
When people ask Little Bean's age, her reply is one of the following:
1. 6 years and 4 months
2. 5 and a half
3. "I'm Eloise and I am 6!"
Do you think I should just give up?
Okay... I'm not so sure. After working with daughter #1 on how to tell time when she was 8,9,10,11 and 12 years old... I gave up. It just was not happening. The expensive watches and cheap plastic clocks just did not work for her.
The problem is today, as a teen, she still can not tell time! Or even understands the concept of time. She wakes up late for school, she leaves late and has no idea when she should be home when out with friends. She uses her lack of ability to her advantage.
So, all the age related scenarios go through my head... like rated R movies, driving, drinking and voting. She will be like her sister and work it to her advantage.
So, I guess that answers my question.
Sorry for wasting your time with such foolishness. ;)
