Where are we and what time is it?
Now that Little Ita is asking so many questions about when? and where?, I have decided to introduce the four cardinal directions. Big concept, but fun to play around with, at least as new vocabulary.
"Mama, where's that train going?" she asks.
"That train is going North." I reply.
"When does Papa come home?"
"When the sun is in the West towards the mountains going to sleep." I tell her.
"Where are all the trucks driving?" she wonders.
"They're all driving East." I say.
It's good work for me to constantly orient myself and have an answer for her curious mind. I've always been proud of my good sense of direction (usually). I hope I can pass that helpful life skill along to her.
