I have been trying to get Back Seat Girl to write her name for a while now, but she has never really wanted to try. Every once in a while she'll give a half-hearted attempt to write an 'A', but otherwise it's been a no-go. I've never really pressed her too hard, she's not really into coloring, either. I've always had a feeling she could do it, though. Tonight we were just playing around in the playroom downstairs and she busted this out after I showed her how to do it once. ONCE. She's been walking around the house spelling her name ever since. Stubborn, thy name is our children.

I'm so proud of her. Driver did the same thing at 4 1/2 years old. He not only wrote his name but MOM, DAD, and his sister's name! You are lucky to have it on paper, we had it on a chalk board. Kids are a kick!
