At her three year old check up, C's doctor mentioned that she should be drawing circles and lines well by now. As I assured him that she was, it occurred to me that I really didn't know. We do a lot of coloring and drawing, but I've never studied her skill level.
So, I used bath time as an opportunity to test her skills with bath crayons. We were drawing stick figures and drew our family. I drew a little boy and said, "look it's Wilson!"
Catherine looked at the drawing, cocked her head to the side, scrunched her nose, and said, "no, he needs a body."
"Catherine, he has a body. What do you mean?" I asked as I handed her the crayon.
With one quick motion, she added the missing component - his "body."
She doesn't miss a thing.
