Meimei is 31 months old now, going to 3 in a couple of months. She’s been doodling along with Baobao for the longest time but with no true form. She’d come to me and ask me to ask her draw something. Be it tiger, lion, helicopter buildings or flower etc she has no problem drawing them in a jiffy. The finished products, however are often unintelligible squiggles.
But yesterday. For the first time, what she drew finally looked like what she intended to.
She drew a ber yoon ( balloon ) which looked like the number “9” and the Sun – a spiral with radiating wriggly strokes.
Oh the joy of watching a child grow..
