Young kids are about as good at making accurate time references as I am at rolling a ball of water in my hands.
When a kid is describing something that happened, parents know that when they say “yesterday” that the word has an elasticity that stretches from a millisecond before now all the way back to when the metaphorical hourglass of Time began theoretically pooping grains of sand in its glass pants.
However, when you’re talking to a young one, most of the time it’s not really important when exactly “yesterday” is in reference to. But every once in a while, when you’re trying to determine how long ago they left a yogurt somewhere or when they put your phone on the table, yesterday’s clarity starts to become a little more valuable.
Good luck, though. Try rolling a ball of water in your hands; it’s easier.
