Callum is 3 years old.
If I were to try to describe Callum in a few words, I’d say – funny, eloquent, and easy going.
He’s an astonishingly reasonable kid. Someone could mistakenly put a bowl of ice cream in front of him, and I could talk to him, in a very adult-like way, and convince him that he shouldn’t eat it download cubase. Without being negative, threatening or deceiving. There’ll be no tantrums. No screaming. No drama.
He’s 11kg (24lb) and 87cm (34in). He’s so much shorter than any other 3 year old we know! Oh well, at least he’s got a sense of humour.
He can recite numbers 1-10 Download zoom app for windows. But he can’t recite the alphabet. Nor can he remember the names of numbers or letters. Despite my efforts, he’s had absolutely no interest in learning his 123s or ABCs.
Our “Learning Numbers Sessions” would go like :
I would draw a number one. And say, “This is a ONE! A line that goes from up here to down here.”
“Hey it’s like when I pull down my pants when I go to the toilet paydirekt app! ZHOOOOP! Haha!” he says.
“Yeah yeah very funny. Ok what was this number again?” I say pointing to the number one.
“Six? Eleven? Eight? Pants?”
Of course I conducted my own scientific experiments after this Download addons for wow. I would draw animals in varying stages of detail over a few weeks, until I was drawing a mere abstract symbol of an animal [See my “giraffe” pictured left]. And each time, even before I got to the legs, he knew exactly what animal it was.
Then I would draw completely weird random shapes and tell him that it’s a “BLAAP” or a “PRONK” wie kann ich musik von amazon prime herunterladen. And he’ll remember them! And still totally forget numbers?!?
Obviously there’s some complicated brain association thing going on in there – thank goodness I’m not a child psychologist. Or maybe he’s just messing with me!?
Anyway, I’ve decided not to be bothered by it and let him figure it out in his own time.
He’s definitely a visual learner santiano album kostenlos herunterladen. Either that, or he’s got a freaky photographic memory. The other day we were stopped at a red light. In fact, this red light.
Just a very standard and very unspectacular traffic light junction, five minutes from our house. We probably pass it 2-4 times a week.
We were waiting for the lights to change when Callum points to the left and says, “Mum, this way is to the video shop and the small shops fortnite pc free. That way is to church and the city. And that way goes to swimming and the big shops.”
It spun me out. He was completely right of course. I can’t believe he’s been paying attention to the direction we turn, remembering it, and then associating it with our final destination. Freaky!!
He can also ride a bike (with trainer wheels) and use his pedal brake falk routenplaner herunterladen. He rides in the park almost every evening. He’s very confident, laughs when he falls, and very fast! I have to do a slow jog to keep up with him. We’ve taught him bike rules and how to cross roads. We’ve never tried it, but I think if he was left alone, he could cross a busy road on a bike all by himself Download windows word for free.
As a result of all this, he sometimes corrects MY DRIVING!! I assure you, there’s nothing wrong with my driving. However to a child, it must look like madness. Like when I’m trying to make a right turn across really busy traffic kostenlose hunde bilder zum downloaden.
One day, I made a safe fast turn, and Callum blasted me for crossing when – according to him – there was CLEARLY A CAR COMING THIS WAY. I kid you not, my three year old gave me a lecture from the backseat, “Mummy. I’m serious ok! I’m very angry that you crossed the road like that. You could have crashed the car and hurt us! Next time you wait until there are NO cars coming! Ok???”
I argued saying “It was a safe cross ok?!!” and we went back and forth like a married couple arguing about my driving!
In the end I had to tell him that the rules were slightly different when you’re driving a car. That he should NOT do what I just did on his bike. And that ONLY when he grows up and learns how to drive a car, THEN he can do a fast cross, like mummy. Damn, parenting is complicated.
Ok that’s all for now.
