AIBU to feel a little bit shock grin confusedsad?

I posted it here

This picture, which she just happened to do at preschool today is far, far better than anything DD2 has ever done (and DD1 can't really draw yet at all).

It completely addles my brain.

wow!...this is exceptional...the detail, body shapes and facial expressions, etc...very advanced for such a young child...how wonderful!!

an artist or engineer of the future with a 'minds eye' understanding of shape, details and it tells a story...

lots of arty crafty things on this christmas list eh?!!

EllenJaneisstillnotmyname Wed 21-Nov-12 16:25:01

Just be proud of her, it's not her fault her DSiss aren't as arty. smile

Lougle Wed 21-Nov-12 16:27:14

You're right...it's just that right now she seems to be good at everything. Arty? Check, Sporty? Check, Good with numbers? Check, Good with words? Check, Good with people? Check....not what I'm used to at all wink

She's just doing it to annoy you. wink My DS3 was a bright spark, I just felt relieved that one of my DC was going to be academic. But actually, he's as quirky as anything. grin

Well done your DD3, that is excellent and very advanced for her age. Be a proud mummy smile

My speech delayed, possibly ASD according to the EP, 3.3 year old DD drew the alphabet in the waiting room at the SALT clinic yesterday, having never written anything before. With her non-dominant hand. I felt exactly the same smile

Picture is LOVELY.

Aww cute pic .. try not to compare. ..just enjoy it.

that's really, fabulous, Lougle.

I undrstand your sense of sad, but it is quite remarkable for a child her age to have so much detail and accuracy in her pictures. dd2 could just about do that now, and she is coming up to 6.

It is really confused when a younger child does stuff seemingly out of order, though, isn't it?

Lougle Wed 21-Nov-12 20:25:46

It really is. It's that feeling of 'firsts' again, which seems so odd when she's our third-born.

Lougle Wed 21-Nov-12 20:26:24

MummytoMog, that's very impressive smile

Thanks smile DD has such great strengths, but I have exactly the same conflicted sense of pride and sadness when DS does something she hasn't yet, and is eighteen months younger. His spontaneous use of speech is astounding compared to hers at the same age sad

How old is she?

DS wrote out sentences for his homework tonight with only some help from me to keep him focussed, he thought them up and done the spelling himself (he's In yr2). I was so pleased that I gave him an ice lolly, let him watch a film in bed a bit later than normal and wrote a note to his teacher to tell him he spelt the words himself. I was just so proud of him grin

Wasn't sure which 'she' you meant, but the drawing girl is 3.7, the writing girl 3.3.

ProcrastinatingPanda Thu 22-Nov-12 07:46:47

Sorry but now I'm confused, so dd3 (3.7yrs), the one who drew the picture, is older than your other daughter (3.3yrs) by 4 months?

MummytoMog Thu 22-Nov-12 10:48:24

It's all got very confused!

My DD (3.3) did some unexpected writing. She has a brother, 18 months younger, who is significantly more advanced in some areas, which makes me a little sad.

Lougle has three daughters, the youngest is 3.7 and did an absolutely brilliant drawing smile but she also feels a little sad sometimes sad

ProcrastinatingPanda Thu 22-Nov-12 10:54:53

Ah it makes much more sense now. It was a brilliant drawing for a child so young, DS is almost 6 and draws at the same ability.
