Young Lady

XY is now 4 and a half years old. At this stage, it's a little hard to keep track of her developments but I'll try to jot down some.

* She's able to tell the days of the week - what day is today, tomorrow, the day after, yesterday, etc.
* She knows some months (especially our birthday months) - which month comes after which, but not all.
* She can count till hundred but will miss out twenty (after nineteen is twenty-one). Then she'll have problems with thirty (she says twenty-ten or thirteen), forty (thirty-ten or fourteen) and so on. But getting better as time goes.
* She's able to clean and wipe herself after doing her big business.
* She can draw much better now. Her humans will have a body, hands and legs, unlike previously when it was just a face with a chunk of standing hair.
* She can nap on her own. Some days, I'll just ask her to go upstairs and she'll sleep herself in the room.
* Her reading has improved a lot. She can recognise more words now.

That's about all I can think of for now.

Some days, I just can't wait till my son is older and knows how to sleep and go to the toilet on his own. But by then, I'll probably miss his cute 2 year old antics. Such mixed feelings as a parent, right?

Very smart girl. My boy who is 4+ doesn't know the months and days. Gosh! He's so lazy and likes to play but not study.

Joanne, she learnt thru association with her timetable in schl. For eg. Tues got PE, Thurs got water/sand play, etc. So after awhile, she got all the days right.
