So little R goes to the fancy baby Mandarin school (which might be working; she just started pointing at things and saying juhguh? when she wants to know the name, which sounds just like the Chinese word for "this one"). Since she's a baby, the "classes" are just various types of playing (free play, singing, etc.). Little R loves almost all of it, with the exception of art time.
Whenever there's an art project, she refuses to participate and finds something else requiring her attention on the other side of the classroom. I never force her, but it seems strange she has such an aversion. All the other babies love smearing themselves with paint.
Here are the other babies, having a fine old time body painting:
And here's little R, ignoring them all, trying to climb into the baby slide in the corner, on the other side of the room (as far away from the nasty paint as she can get):
I am not sure what is going on here. Usually she loves new things. She doesn't seem scared at all, just completely uninterested. Maybe it's a phase?
