Early days

Every day, Facebook delivers memories of my girls, and it usually reminds me to make a journal entry of some sort.

Here, Frances is three-and-a-half and waiting for her preschool class to start.

She loved to play with the light and shadows, and she still does!

The apple game 

At the age of 26 months or so, Frances went from speaking less than the average child her age to using compound sentences, correct adjective-adverb distinction, and story-telling, in an incredibly short period of time. (It truly seemed to occur just about overnight.)

Fast forward to March 4, 2010, when Frances, two months away from turning three, is talking about the “apple game”.

Me: What is it?

Frances: It’s where I go get an apple and throw it at something.

Me: Uh, no. No, we’re not going to play that game. (By this point, she is running to get the stool that she uses to reach the apples.)

Frances: You should watch me, Mummy. It’s very cute.
