If you have ever met our dog Bella, you know that she is obsessed with balls. I would like to thank her for bringing us this teachable moment today. I don’t know how Bella so perfectly placed her ball, but it worked out great! Mommy was able to talk about and demonstrate the opposites big and small. Of course Fisher went for the ball he wasn’t supposed to have. Most likely not because it was “small” but hey, at least I planted the seed! Bella was scared of the “big” jingle ball and wouldn’t get her ball. So nice of Fisher to help her out!
Tip: Talk to baby about things in their environment. Use lots of adjectives such as “little, blue ball” and “big, jingle ball, it’s orange and yellow.”
