Like Mother, Like Daughter on memory & organization anyway...

Tot pulled out the board games today and I can see how she's progressed and grown. Although waiting ones turn is still occasionally forgotten and the rules are slightly altered, she's starting to understand the concepts and plays Brown Bear and Memory with me.
Most notable is she is definitely showing signs of understanding and using her memory to locate the items that she has seen before. This means a lot to me, not only developmentally but also allows me to see that my child does have a fairly good memory. DH, I love you but your memory and spatial relations are less than stellar. I'm glad she's showing signs that she has good retention and navigational skills.
I also like that 3 out of 4 times, she said she needed to put away her game and pieces so she can play with the game again later.
