Daisy?s writingLots of Daisy posts, this week. Just as well, it was starting to look like we’d lost interest in her.

Daisy has made a handful of developmental leaps, recently. The one which is currently impressing me the most is not the successful telephoning of her father when he was at work, but the attempts at writing.

She has quite suddenly changed the focus of her drawing to be about creating letteresque shapes, and then telling me that it says “Daisy” or “Mummy”. When asked to write in Daddy’s birthday card, she produced a neat line of such shapes, and seems to be very clear as to their purpose. I’m becoming more and more convinced of autonomous education as a theory. She just does this stuff, no-one taught her. And if I was trying, I’m really not convinced it would work.
