My eldest daughter loves to read. This is one thing that she really loves to do since immemorial. But she loves more if I or her dad reads for her before she finally dozes off at night.
As she grows old, her interests also progress. Aside from reading, she has started to enjoy drawing and writing letters for me and her dad. Sometimes I amazed of her drawings especially how she draws a person. It is very detail and she even the name of the person in her drawing. I remember that during her age, I can only draw stick people. She is better than me, I must admit 😀
Writing to my parents is something that I have never done because I was not mold to do such. So I am so happy whenever I received a letter from my daughter. She even wants me and her dad signed it.Â I keep her letters because I want to show it to her when she is all grown-up.
Recently, she is showing interest for puzzles. Last quarter, she used her merit money, the credit given to the students in their school whenever they got a perfect score in their PACE test, to buy a small puzzle, a doll, and marbles. I will not be surprised if she will ask me to buy her cobble hill puzzles in the future. That is if her interest and enthusiasm to complete a puzzle didn’t subside.

that’s great to hear. congrats to you there proud mama. 🙂
Kids these days are really amazing! They surprise us all the time and they never fail to give us an instant lift 🙂
my youngest daughter loves to read and she has written short novels well. I think it was because of her love for reading that she is able to write well.
Great to read that your child is into puzzles. My kids love puzzles too and they play it both online and using the old fashion pieces.
I have read that enhancing our child’s interest and where they are at bestis much better than encouraging to do multi-task. I can also see my son loves books and music so we will focus much there. 🙂
So nice. You should enhance her talent by buying her lots of books.:)
Dropping by from COmmEx..
Have a nice day:)
Having a sweet daughter like yours is really a blessing. You’re one lucky Mom! 🙂
what can i say … your daughter is really talented 🙂
With the advent of electronics, many of the kids are not into reading nor into crafts or writing letter.This is very special that she still does this. I am hoping that my son would read more even if it is in the iPad or computer but these gadgets tempt them to do many other things!
my daughter is into puzzles too. whatever she likes to do, we are willing to support her as long as it will hone her interests. i’m just having a little trouble when it comes to reading. she loves to read but she wants me to do it for her rather than do it by herself. 😛
I think you may have a little artist there. 🙂 Puzzle solving is a great way to exercise a child’s brain. Identifying and learning through visual cues is the easiest way to learn especially now when everything is so visual.
its so happy to hear your girl’s fond of reading and puzzles.. 🙂 i wish my boy would be too 🙂
Smart kid, my son is not fun of reading, few years ago he was into coloring but not now.
I still have a long way to go for Julia to start reading. I’m starting off with her vowel sounds, the old school way “BA BE BI BO BU” hahah. Sabi ng asawa ko, what is that you’re teaching her, tagalog? I think the way Arabs teach their children to read is different from our standards. Visiting from CommEx Oct16.
I observed that it is better if the child learns first the proper pronunciation of the alphabet in English rather than in Filipino. Mas madali makacatch-up ung bata sa Filipino kung matuto muna syang magbasa in English 🙂
great! smart kid…
wish to have a kid like yours haha
i used to write notes and create cards for my parents when i was a kid! 🙂 i wish my son would do the same… 🙂
It’s really fun to be with kids and guiding them as they grow old. Discovering their gifts are the most exciting part.
That’s sweet 🙂 Seldom does my son write me a letter but he gives me a number of his drawings a day. Instead of writing a ‘sorry letter’, he gives me drawing of a heart crying buckets of tears 🙂 Agreed. Your daughter will treasure her letters that you kept when she’s older 🙂
Same with you, I also bought whatever my children is interested in especially if it’s educational and will help them in their mental development. Good job mommy! 🙂
It’s really nice to hear about kids growing up in the proper way, with interests that I am sure will take her places. I think she’s gifted on the artistic side…literature, drawing, etc. Reminds me of someone I now very much… 🙂
You are so special to have a daughter as gifted as she. I tried to mold my son to also learn how to express in words, but he is shy to do so…
Give her those stuffs because its fun and educational. That kind of puzzle will surely enhance her brain!
Oh your daughter is so sweet!
She reminds me of my nieces. They love to make letters and artworks for me! Oh how I miss them.
i love getting notes from my daughter. i used to work at nights so she usually leaves one before she goes to school.
If she loves to read, I wouldn’t be surprised if she takes to writing eventually. 🙂 It’s great that she also dabbles on creative arts and toys that stimulate logical thinking.
jigsaw puzzle became our bonding moments with my siblings. the finished product has been displayed in our house. it gave us fun.
That’s so sweet of your daughter to be writings for you. It must be so nice to receive letters from her. When I was a kid, I only wrote to my dad when it was required by the school (during recollections and retreats).
I hope my Henry writes me letters as well. But as of now, I am just so happy when he asks for hugs and kisses.
