Asher often tells me from the backseat of the truck that he is feeling “truck-sick”. I understand that he says that since we are in the truck rather than the car, so saying that he’s “car-sick” just wouldn’t make logical sense!
Yesterday we were at Walmart, & we’d been there for quite awhile since I had a long list of things we needed to get. After about an hour, Asher told me, “Mummy, I’m getting home sick.”
I asked him, “What does it mean to be home-sick?” since I wasn’t sure what context he was meaning.
Asher then explained it thus, “Home-sick is when you are at someone’s house & you want to go back you your own house, but you never do.”
So, he understood the meaning perfectly, but I really enjoyed the way he phrased it.
