Searching for a Heart

Here's how you find out about improvements in your son's vocabulary. 
One night you are reading one of both twins favorite stories, "Going on a Bear Hunt," and N says, "I want go on bear hunt."
You say, "sure! we'll go on a bear hunt tomorrow!" Because you always say tomorrow when you mean some undetermined day in the future that's probably never.
The next morning N is up bright and early and the first words out of his mouth are: "today we go on bear hunt!"
When the heck did he learn what the word tomorrow means?
Guess what?
No bears (except for the stuffed one we brought with us) at Bourne Farm, in the cattle tuner, or on the paths behind the farm!
