Past & present

I was trying to explain to Faith the difference between when it snowed (past) and when it is snowing (present). At first I had to use visuals that made her realize when it snowed or was snowing.

We would come outside after a snowfall and thankfully the snow at least stayed on the car so I used that as a visual representation that it has snowed. Faith would come outside and yell “Daddy, it’s snowing!” I corrected her and tried to explain to her it had snowed and the way we know is by the snow on top of the car. I think she understood because she said “snowing Daddy” with a big grin on her face.

Next time it snowed we would go through the same thing, until just the other day Faith came outside and it was pouring, she said “Daddy, it’s raining!” I said “that’s right, Baby. Good job.” Then as we were driving in the car and it was still raining Faith said “it’s raining” again I affirmed her for saying it correctly. Hopefully this is the beginning of her understand something so abstract as past and present.

She’s a smart girl.
