My previous post was about finding role models for my daughter in young kids, who are just slightly older than Hannah. My rationale was that they provide her with the example of what she can do next, physically, socially and intellectually. I had made a commitment to myself and to Hannah, that I would make a concerted effort to take her out of the house more and give her the opportunities to interact with and observe young kids. So today we went to rhyme time!
Hannah is, at this point in time, an only child. She is also, on both sides of the family, the only grandchild.
As a result, she gets plenty of attention from the adults around her. She has adults on tap, to play with her, to read with her, to make silly faces and to cheer her up when she’s feeling down. After all, there are no other kids around to divide attention. Hannah has lots of adults, and she has them all to herself.
