She's been "signing" her artwork with her name and addressing her so-called gift cards for months, often with the appropriate first initials: "T" for her, "t" for Taison (because he's the little 't'), "H" for Mama's name, "B" for Daddy's name, and so on. She can write almost all the letters, although a few are still a bit shaky -- like her S's and some confusion between M's and N's.
That's a respectable shot at her brother's full name, too -- the "S" is interesting, and it should be an "n", but at least she's consistent. She did this last Friday, the 30th, at the ripe old age of 3.65 years...give or take.
CAVEAT: yes, the Mama-san helped her a bit (verbally) to get the order correct.
We've been seeing a lot of this face lately. It seems she is going from 3 to 12. She goes from sweet to sassy in about 12 seconds and she has us fearing for the tween years.
Sugar & spice and everything nice,
that's what little girls are made of.
...there is not a mention of the particular "spice" used in this recipe.
Me thinks ours has a touch of curry in it....
A half-hour later, after coaxing the Mancub to sleep and reluctantly putting him back where he could further abuse his already dangerously sleep-deprived mother, I snuck back into bed with Trinh.
She rolled over lazily and said with perfect diction, "So, Daddy....how did it go?"
