A week ago, we were getting many many drawings like this from Morgan. I love them, these little floating potato people, dancing above fantastical rainbow coloured landscapes. They hold a special place in my heart.
Then this week, we have had our first one of these... Look! The purple dude has a body!! So quickly these things are come and gone.
This little four year old has started writing, too. She copied Jenna's name on this one.
The same day, she came to me with the Peppa Pig note book someone had given her, and told me that she needed to paint in it - because look, it says "painting". She read the "p" part and made up the rest, but woah, that is READING. It isn't just that I haven't taught her to do it, it's that I haven't even made any extra-special effort to read to her or point out signs or anything that I well-meaningly did for Jenna. Morgan hasn't been into books much for a good few months, though she will listen to one when her sisters do. And she is showing a lot of pre-reading skills! Take that, formal schooling. ;)
