Hide & Seek

2 Feb 2010 : Shean Wenn at 31 Months Old.

Today while I was at the computer, I heard a little voice saying "hide and seek, hide and seek. Can you find me?"

I turned around and saw no one. And no, I was not imagining things..



PEEK-A-BOO!!!

One of the many ways she entertains herself (and myself) during the day when we don't go out.


----- UPDATE -------


This morning I gave her a bunch of colour pencils and papers. She starts to doodle and I was watching her & telling her "Why don't you write me an A". She tried many times until I was satisfied with her A. (She was writing it like an upside U with a line across. I told her the lines has to be distinct like a Triangle).

Then she proceeded to write 7, C & P but all terbalik (mirror image). She actually writes her 7 from the bottom up (instead of top to bottom). It's funny! I told her it is not the right side but still complimented her on her effort. I have read about this "phenomenon" as well, people saying their pre-schooler writing alphabets or numbers in a mirror-image. I wonder what made them do this?

Anyhow, it isn't a big concern to me at the moment because I think it's just the way they view things at the moment. But any ideas/comments/links to this would be appreciated.

According to this link:

a child that young is still developing directionality so it is nothing to be concerned about.

Appreciate it, BlogHopper! It makes sense. They do view at things that way, and also recognises alphabets/numbers as pictures.

SW is doing very well for her age. Way ahead of many, and that includes SL. :)

Pssst... Kor and I found out the reason why Shean Shean's 'C's are not right.

It's due to the Coach bag she's been lugging around! :P

Tsu Yen : BLECK! I doubt that is the REAL reason!
