Next, soon

In the last few weeks, Bright Eyes has learned the concept of something happening first, and then something happening next or soon. He has even got the concept of his birthday being first, and then his sister's birthday being next.

Now he wants to be first to do everything. When I bring out the morning tea, he says, "Bright Eyes first. James next." He has to be first to get in the car, and first to get out of the bath.

It's quite handy actually. If the two of them are doing something and I want them to do something else, I can trick Bright Eyes into doing it by saying James can go first... he's not happy about that!
