Yesterday I decided that Sabrina needs to learn that "yesterday" means one day ago, not "any time in the past" (e.g. "yesterday Santa came and brought me presents"), and "tomorrow" means the next day, not "any time in the future." Trying to explain this to her did not go well. I gave up before trying to explain that "today" means, well, today. We'll keep working on it.
Last night we were reading a great story (Llama Llama Red Pajama, by Anna Dewdney, I highly recommend it) when Sabrina told me that the language in the book was wrong. It says "Mama Llama goes downstairs." "No," Sabrina said. "BE downstairs." Oy.
Today we rode in the elevator with a couple from Spain. In the course of our conversation, Sabrina continued to insist that she doesn't speak English.
We've also defined the following words over the past few days: fret, moan, underpass, and epiglottis. If anyone can remind me of the scientific word for the reason why something will slide if you put it down on top of a film of water, that would be great.
