In preschool we made a paper chain to count down the days until Christmas. So what mom has done is explain to me that Britt will be home on Christmas Day and we are using it to count down the days until she is home.
(Note, we are a blended family and Benji is VERY attached to his sister. He has a very difficult time dealing with change so when Britt isn't home we have to come up with a way for him to deal with it. This was originally a paper chain to count down the days until Santa comes, but we don't have Santa. - Jesus provides all of our needs, including presents.)
This paper chain has been a really good idea, helping me have something visual to show how much longer it will be.
