Yesterday Bob and I met with two of Juniper's teachers for our first ever parent/teacher conference. It was nice to hear how normal-to-above-average our daughter is. Among other things, we learned that she can write her name. I said, but she writes the J backwards. That's okay, they said, and a lot of kids do that at first. Well, today I practiced with Juni writing a J the correct way. She wrote about 30 Js. Sometimes she needed a reminder for which direction to make the curve go. Then a bit later when I wasn't looking she wrote her nick name on a clean sheet of paper all by herself. And the curve of the J is in the right direction!
