So Margaret learned to walk on the evening of the 24th of January 2011.
(Not that I was paying attention to the date or anything. I mean, I scarcely noticed).
This was 10 days before her 1st birthday. So Ellie, in order to meet or exceed expectations, needs to learn to walk by the evening of the 21st.
20 days, Ells, 20 days.
Luckily, I think that she’s getting pretty close.
And, you know, the comparisons are not serious. They’re just easy. Ellie can wait to walk as long as she wants.*
*I don’t mean that, though, because I really don’t want to have to carry into her kindergarten class.
