Does your son understand the concept of his birthday, like a new year? If so, 
can you make a connection to it, except that the DAY goes faster than the 
year?  

What about a favorite TV show? Does he think it occurs on the same DAY or on 
the next DAY? Try to find things that have a beginning and an end, but still 
keep going. That is why he is having trouble. In a sense, it is a famous 
dilemma. It ends, but then never ends.  

Maybe your son is thinking way too hard about it. Those thoughts are a little 
early for him if he is having them!

Hope this helps.
