We try to do craft time or a learning time at home on occasion. This week we are working on daddy's father day gift (shhhhhh..... don't tell him). So this task was pretty simple, just some coloring for starters.
La la la, everyone is coloring and happy, mom takes a few photos.
And this is what happens with Norah after about 3 minutes of coloring.
She looses all attention and goes off and does something else.
Actually, this is what happens every time we try to sit down and color, craft, teach, watch tv, basically anything thing that requires some type of attention span.
And to be completely honest it DRIVES ME CRAZY!!!
At first, (like over a year ago) when Norah was a wee little 2 year old, I knew that I wasn't going to hold her attention very long simply because she was 2. I kept telling myself "with more time her attention will grow, just don't stress out, don't loose patience, she has to eventually stop wiggling, and start participating, Right?"
It's not happening folks.
Norah is just Norah, in her own world many days.
And this is what Maya continues to do as Norah is moving about.
|Daddy would be proud Maya is trying to spell the word, "bacon"|
It is hard for me to be in both worlds at the same time
|and this is the world of Norah (2 seconds of scribble color)|
Should I be worried?
