More Nieceling Exploits
Although my 4-year-old niece is doing just fine with her language development, apparently her mother is concerned because she isn't quite up to snuff with her gross motor milestones. Specifically, she cannot yet stand or hop on one foot.
Her mother's response to this is encouragement:
Mom: Can you stand on one foot?
Mom (later): Can you hop on one foot?
Mom (several more times): Can you stand on one foot?
Finally, my niece went over and stood on her mother's foot.
