Sometimes it’s amazing witnessing our children achieve certain “level” of milestones.
This happened before she turned two, in fact, this happened when she was 16th to 17th months old. She will lead us to the place that she wanted to go and she has never made any extra turns to reach the destination.
Besides, knowing her way home, the way to my mother’s place, my SIL’s place she also knows the following:
- Where are the two sinks at these two supermarkets (Shop & Saves & NTUC) we shop our groceries. She also knows the direction of some stores in Toa Payoh Central too.
- The direction of the nursing room in Forum shopping mall. (I think it’s an achievement for a 2yo to take 3 escalators down from JGC and walk to nursing room herself.)
- Today we went Ikea, she walk to the playground in the Eatery herself. (We went Ikea like every 2-3 months rotating from Alexandra and Tampines.) (We didn’t eat there today. So it her own initiative to walk there herself.)
I am surprise Yvette has a sense of direction under her finger tip at tender age of 2!
P/S: There are still some places she knows but I can’t recall them now.
