This is a real milestone.
Sophia has been doing bugs in school this term and we have been talking a lot about ant farms and arachnids. YEsterday, she regaled me over the phone about a snail that her teacher taught her to make, which she had brought home, and which looked like this
"Lets make snails mummy. My teacher teached me how to make. We need three paper plates. One for you, one for me and one for Anjali"
And then, when I pointed out that you only needed half a paper plate for one snail, she said
"Then with one paper plate, Anjali and I can both make snails. You want to do? then we will take one more paper plate"
But Anjali didnt want to make snails. She made this instead.
"My teasher diidnt say that we can put glitter", she said, in response to my asking her. "But I will let you put glitter", she added magnanimously, seeing the glittery stars and beads
"I will not follow your instructions", she said. And made her own snail that looked like this
