The same child who forgets what she was told a minute earlier, will out of the blue bring up a memory from a few years ago. Most of the time it takes us a while to recall what she is talking about. There's also her sense of direction, which amazes me. I manage to get lost even with the help of a GPS. That is just plain shameful. SS remembers directions after visiting a place just once. She is always telling me where to turn, and as we drive on the freeway, she will tell me what is on a particular exit.
We think her sense of direction is related to her above average spatial orientation. Not bragging here, because we had nothing to do with her gift. It's probably why SS is so interested in building, order, reading and following instructions. It is why Legos are her favorite toy. We love watching her assemble them in record time, while carefully following the instructions of the ones way above her age. P sees math prominently in SS's future, and probably engineering. I would not go as far, it's just too early to tell. Especially when she starts to hear that rubbish about math and building being for boys. For the time being, I'm just enjoying watching SS being true to herself.
Last Friday SS wore this cute outfit to school.
Easy breezy, SS got to wear both, and she did a darn good job.
SS found one of my post Halloween clearance finds and wanted to try it now. I bought Mr. Potato Head parts to use on a pumpkin, like the Snoopy parts I used this year. The idea was to get them in the Halloween bin to use next year. But SS plead, and we had a pumpkin to be used, so what the heck. I told her we could try it after school, and SS could not wait to come home.
Our beautiful, clever girl. Never a dull moment with you SS.
