So drawing half naked:
And much to my excitment; Rye is starting to draw semi recognisable objects. This is a motorbike and rider; which looks a little like the wooden motorbikes he has;
And this is a lorry
I'm pretty impressed and rather proud.
Can I ask tho - should 2 yr olds be drawing people? The HV asked me this and she really did expect Rye to be doing this, particularly as he was 2 1/2 when I took him for the check. I was stunned; he was still at the swirls and scribbles stage - well he still is; only just starting to draw objects - at least ones I can see are what he says they are. Which reminds, the HV did call to ask me to bring Rye back; I told her no. Said I had absolutely no concerns, his speech etc had come on leaps and bounds. She asked me about his concentration and I told her that has never been a problem, I was just too suprised to say so when she raised it; and said he has from a very young age being a very concentrated little boy and will spend hours drawing (this evening he's been drawing for about an hour). She sounded a bit suprised and then just asked me if he was nursery now and I told her he wouldn' be going and that we go to a lot of groups etc ourselves and I don't see the necessity of nursery.
I think I must have come across as quite forceful because she didn't argue, just said, ok and that she would update the records and that was it. :-)
