| review, weekly
  • Fine motor
    • A- carefully cut freeform spirals out of paper, turning the paper with one hand while cutting with the other. She also occasionally did a good job of following curves drawn on the paper, or cutting around drawings. She learned this from W-.
  • Language
    • “I did not caught the ball.”
    • “Oh no, hair. That is from you.”
    • I made a quick book about going to the hospital.
    • “I don't know what that is.”
  • Self-care
    • Playing pretend dentist let me brush A-‘s teeth frequently.
    • A- didn't want me to change her diaper, so I cheerfully changed Giraffe's diaper. Then she decided it was her turn.
    • We went to Sick Kids for A-‘s dental surgery. Afterwards, we hung out with Popo and R-.
    • A- was okay with drinking 1.5ml infant Tylenol diluted in two small glasses of smoothie.
  • Household
    • A- wanted to water the lawn with the hose.
    • A- gently watered the seedlings.
  • Social
    • A- experimented with her excited voice and her normal voice.
    • A- was okay with this week's babysitter, but she wasn't as engaged as she was with other ones. She was a little more attached to me, and she wanted to end the babysitting session half an hour early. She kept saying, “Bye bye Priscila. Priscila go home.”
  • Pretend
    • A- liked pretending that she was stuck under the laundry basket.
  • Us
    • W- built more planter boxes. He planted thyme and tarragon.
    • I edited some text for my mom.
    • J- made creamy pesto pasta bake and a warm shrimp salad.
    • I realized that it's okay to enjoy this moment as it is, instead of thinking of it as preparation for something else.
