Sean is really into Melissa & Doug floor puzzles these days. We have a growing library of puzzles of increasing complexity and it’s fascinating to sit on the floor and watch the mind of a three-year-old work through the reasoning that is required to complete a puzzle.
Our current favorite puzzle is a 100-piece depiction of Noah and the animals exiting the ark. Sean can work it without too much assistance which impresses his mother mightily. Of course his mother is also impressed with how he inhales and exhales and blinks. So then, that is to say, I’m easily impressed when it comes to my boy.
The other night we were sitting on the floor putting together this puzzle when Sean picked out the piece with Noah’s foot on it and examined it closely. He passed it to me and said, “Look Mom. Noah wore flip flops.”
Indeed he did. And he wore a dress too.
