My latest internet time-waster is Pinterest. People have 'pinned' all sorts of overly precious activities for their children (among other things; that's one topic I browse often).
2. Ditto with bento boxes and sandwiches arranged to look like ladybugs or owls or whatever.
3. Lots of cutesy-poo ideas for making handprints and footprints into pictures. I thought about this for a present for grandparents, but it turns out that Q will not suffer stuff to be smeared upon her extremities. If the stuff is self-smeared, she will still not suffer her hand to be taken and placed ANYWHERE.
Q update: We're well into 2-word phrases now, mostly possessives (not personal, but stuff like Mommy's shoes, Daddy's shoes, Baby's/Q's shoes. Also with colors.
She likes to sit and read books to herself. She'll read through certain alphabet books several times in a row, pointing and talking through the whole thing.
She loves the iPad. A little too much.
She's kinda bossy. She likes to take my hand and make me do stuff. When I try to introduce a craft activity, that's usually what happens. I try to demonstrate the smearability of fingerpaint, and next thing you know, she's taking my hand, showing me what paint to dip it in and where to smear it. (For 2 minutes anyhow, until she gets up and walks away). Also when we're reading books, she'll grab my thumb and use it to point (particularly if I have been recalcitrant on going though the whole Correct And Proper Routine with the book-- by the 5th or 6th time through, I don't really want to count every f'ing thing on every page again, but That Will Not Do and she clearly indicates to me what I am to do.previous next
