Amy's check-up

Amy had her eighth regular check-up ("U8") the other day (for children between 3.5 and 4 years of age).

I think her speech was fine this time (as opposed to, say, her two-year check-up, where she spoke quite a bit less than "average"), as was her knowledge of things such as colours.

Her shortcomings were her motor skills: for example, she doesn't hop on one leg, and she's not very good at drawing (as opposed to colouring in). The square, circle, triangle, and cross she had to copy turned out rather wobbly and shapeless.

The doctor (a substitute, since our regular pædiatrician was on holiday) was a bit disapproving and told us to practise a lot with Amy (both drawing shapes and things such as walking with one foot in front of the other or hopping on one leg) and to come back for a repeat of the U8 in half a year, though the assistant later told Stella not to worry too much and that coming back in a year's time should be sufficient, and that Stella would know best where Amy could use more practice.
