the boy and the advent calendar
So Grammie and Papa gave Ashleigh & Ryan advent calendars at Thanksgiving. Well, the 5 year old girl understands. Each day until Christmas you open up a little door revealing a picture and a small piece of chocolate. The nearly 3 year old boy does not understand. You just don't open each little door at once and eat all the chocolate right now? Huh? Patience? Bah, patience! It was a serious challenge to get the boy to comprehend it all... we're on day 4 and only one extra door has been opened... not too bad.
