We had been away on holidays for two weeks. To pre-empt a meltdown come Monday morning, I tried to mentally prep her a few days before..
A: Rae, on Monday you have school, okay.
R: Monday Gor Gor (big brother), Jie Jie (big sis), Mai Mai (little aunt), Boh Boh (big aunt), popo (grandma), gong gong (grandpa) come my house.
A: You have school on Monday so they won’t be coming.
R: but I want see everybody.
Good try, little one.
