  • I've been kind of worried lately. Mica refuses to cut with scissors, he's not too into coloring, and he's never wanted to do craft like things at preschool.
  • His teacher said that all he wants to do is puzzles. He likes to put train tracks together as well (another puzzle like activity).
  • You'd think with two parents that get into two types of art; he would be interested too.
  • I put scissors in his hand over the weekends, and he doesn't even understand how to use them. He has little to no coordination in this area. I know he's only going to be 4, but I've read that kids can start to use scissors at age 3.
  • He's ahead in his verbal, vocabulary, and picks up the knowledge part of many things very easily.
  • I just wish I could get the boy to use scissors!
  • I know I should count my blessings that he isn't slow like I was in the picking up of knowledge. I got through grad school, but I struggled when I was younger. I went to all those chapter 1 classes and failed standardized tests.
  • I'm really happy that Mica doesn't struggle with talking! Being born with a tongue thick on one side, and skinny on the other made me worry a lot for nothing.
  • I just think as a mom, you worry about anything that your child is having problems succeeding at.

Mica will probably grow up to be a CPA. :)

I was thinking he'd end up being an engineer or an architect with his building skills. Oh...but he'll have to be able to cut with those. :)

think of all the $$$ we'd have if we really didn't need the MRI's and CT scans. Just for the staph infection. He owes us big time!
