    Best Fine And Gross Motor Skill Gifts For 3 Year Olds

    I can’t believe my toddler is turning 3. It felt like just yesterday I brought my little bambino back from the Krankenhaus (hospital) and here she is, blowing her 3 candles on her birthday cake soon.

    I think 3 is a fabulous age. Even now at 2, I’m blown away of her capabilities. There are times I feel like I’m talking to a mini-adult, she placing her hands on her hips, conversing to me about everything and anything. So what’s more at 3. They’re developing in leaps and bounce – physically, cognitively, emotionally, socially, their sensory and motor skills are improving, and language.

    Best English Books For Bilingual Kids

    My kids are bilingual – truly bilingual. You must be thinking, “Hey, most of us could speak more than one language. What’s the difference?” You’re right. We’re all bilingual or multilingual in one way or another.

    What I mean by truly bilingual is they are not spoken or taught one language at a time at home. But simultaneously (English and German) since they were born. I myself speak four languages, but I learned them throughout my life and I still do. However, I was brought up speaking only English.
