At least I can promise I will keep it short. I wanted to mark the occasion. Mallory read ten pages of Charlotte’s Web to Irene and I tonight. We were coaching her a bit but she was doing it.

Learning with her seems to be a bit of a damn-breaking phenomenon. She’ll observe and observe without doing for the longest time and then she’ll launch into some new skill like she’s always done it, Irene observed this evening. As with walking, biking and learning to use a toilet.

I was watching this in action the other night at her class party at Brantwood Park. She was up on a new (to her though not really) set of monkey bars – her favourite – but standing on the platform watching others have their turn and bust their moves.

She tried to reach out as if to test the bars or her strength etc but never really got to the point where she was comfortable letting go and swinging. But to see her on other play structures you’d think she lived there.
