J Summary (4Y2M26D) - J at 4 Years Old

Now at the age of 4 years old, J started showng interest in drawing, and have been so for the last 2-3 weeks. He will do drawing in the morning, while waiting for mom and dad to get ready. The kindergarten showed us a drawing he made, which was very artistic. But the drawing he is doing at home is more like scribbing.

Now at the age of 4 years old, J is interested in playing with Lego, and started to be able to build some car models. J is enjoying coloring, doing it with effort and more seriousness and self-motivation. He built the wooden toy track by himself last Sunday.

According to J, the one in the middle is a double-decker bus

He is not so self-motivated to play the piano though. He finds practising playing scales very boring. He likes to play melody, but of course have not learned enough to do so. I follow his direction, and is going slow with the piano, although the homework that our piano teacher gives is a lot, that will not allow us to take a slowe pace.

At 4 years old, J is still willingly eating his super-porridge every morning, meaning oatmeal with bean cubes, green vegetable cubes and carrot cube all mixed together, sweetened with banana and enhanced with wheat germ, flaxseeds or chia seeds.

At 4 years old, I started introducing the concept of addition to him, half wondering if it has sinked into his head. It seems to be so. He came up with the idea of using marbles and later LEGO for the addition activity. He initiated 3 addends today.

At 4 years old, J is still happy to do those Chinese pre-schooler fun assessment books that I bought from Popular bookshop, whenever I am back in Singapore. The other day, I did a little marathon of Chinese homework and the workbook is finally near completion. However, sadly, at 4 years old, his vocabulary is not catching up, since I am FTWM, and does not have so much time to spend with him to converse in Chinese. However, he is still talking Mandarin with me, never switching to Danish, unlike other mixed children, which I am grateful. There is hope, but I need to buck up.

At 4 years old, he started showing interest in cleaning, and on his own initiative, went to clean the BBQ pit yesterday. He waters the plants. He is doing more practical life things than I was a child.
