The Toy Car
With his delayed motoric development, playing things has come a little delayed too for Dek Ai'. I introduced him to piano. And ball. And blocks. And rings. And books. For months he was only interested in opening the pages of books without paying any attention to the contents. He likes to hit his fingers on the piano keys. It took times until he finally likes to play with ball and blocks. But not toy cars. I almost gave up.
I brought him several kinds of toy car. Bus. Truck. Sedan. Big. Small. Never attracted him, still. Last week I decided to give it one more try. I gave him this toy-bus-alike-train. He didn't response good at first. Then at least once a day I sit on the floor with him. Put our hands on the toy and push it forward and back ward several times - before he push my hand aside and leave.
One day I run the toy in front of him and it caught his attention.
Last night for the first time, he played with the toy car. I let him do, no interruptions at all. I didn't want to bother the joy he just found. He played with it for almost one hour.
This morning I put other toy cars he refused to play with, before. And he started to like them.
It's not about what toy to play. But I believe playing with toy cars is a part of the efforts to develop his motoric control.
Few months ago I was so jealous seeing a friends baby playing with toy car. Now it feels so good to see Dek Ai' doing the same.
He's late but he'll catch up I know.
