Thanks - I'll bring it up at her upcoming well child check, It's hard to know what's normal at 2- she did a 10 peice jigsaw yesterday so apparantly she IS ready for that -so off to get some 20 peice ones today.
I guess I'm a little concerned because she has started not wearing shoes with dirty soles etc, probably just normal 2 year old behaviour. She's otherwise a happy kid so I'm not hitting the panic button yet!
I think it is appropriate to say, "Welcome to the Club!"
Also if you get a blank stare at your well-child check,
please come back here for more 'moral' support.
To date, none of our [well-meaning] local psychologists,
let alone primary care physicians, had any idea what
we were talking about. I am glad you found this site
early; I was slower on the uptake but think I caught
on in almost enough time to save our DD from permanent
psychological harm, although I may be wrong--time will tell.
Best of luck,
P.S. I almost forgot I was responding because have you
seen 'Amadeus'--I am not learned enough to know whether
it is valid or not, but apparently Mozart relished
backwards and variant phrases, both linguistic and musical.
