As mothers we often think that everything our child does is simply amazing, miraculous even (which is a good thing for me or there would be no need for parenting blogs, right! LOL!)
So straight up I am going to tell you that this blog post includes a little bit of bragging because I really wanted to share this…
Well, that chalk scribble is certainly nothing to brag about, I hear you say. The amazing thing (at least to me), was that as she drew Immy said, “Round and round,” and then, “Eyes,” and then, “Arm,” and, “Arm.” (see below)
It was so cute, she even drew the right arm with the chalk in her right hand and then swapped the chalk to the left hand to draw the left arm.
I included Susan Striker’s stages of drawing development in a previous post and it says that at about 24-30 months, children “Draws freer circular scribbles and begins to include a variety of scribble shapes in drawing.” I think this may be the very beginning of this stage.
I hope you don’t mind my sharing this little milestone with us. I think it is nice to acknowledge and celebrate what our children can do and hope you don’t mind me bragging, just a little!
