Tomorrow does not exist for kids

Samika (2+yrs) insisted on another chocolate, when she had already had 2 for the day (which is beyond her allowed limit) and I was trying to convince her that she can keep it and have it the next day. Now, how to make her realize the concept of a day – well, since she has this habit of saying “good morning” after waking up, I told her that she can have the chocolate after “good morning”.

She was silent for a few mins, then said “good morning, give me the chocolate”!
