crossover skills


when i sit and cut pictures from magazines, often jaden sits with me and practices her cutting as well. i give her a magazine and a pair of scissors and she goes to town. she is attracted to babies and beautiful women mostly. she will sit and cut for a long time while i work, sometimes continuing on long after i am done.

i am thrilled about this because she is learning to cut well, reuse resources and make up stories about the pictures. sometimes, she glues them onto paper as well.

I think cutting is very important for our little ones, in so many ways. I wish more parents were willing to let their kids use scissors, supervised, at a young age.
