Genius? Or something else?

For some odd reason, Erin was only able to write her name backwards yesterday. Completely backwards. Mirror writing like daVinci used to use in his notebooks.



When I pointed it out to her, she couldn't do it the correct way unless she saw it first. I wonder what that says about her.

anne wrote backwards for two years. I never really made a big deal of it and figured it would straighten itself out--it did. but I did fear that she was dyslexic--but she isn't--I think it means that they see the world a little differently than everyone else :)

Both Aiden and Sophie started their writing this exact same way. (And maybe Clip has done it too, although the only thing he can write right now is his name.) Especially when they were writing something next to an object on the right. They want to start next to the object and then they know the letters go next to each other, but they just write them from right to left the opposite way. Something about going right to left caused them to naturally create their letters backwards too.
So *I* thought it was normal. If it's not normal, then our kids are in the same "special" group! :)
