At first I thought she was just a little bit dim comapared to the others, but I've come to the conclusion it's just laziness through and through:-)

She's lazy in her speech, which means she only says the words well enough to get her point accross. Mstr A had pretty perfect enunciation as soon as he learned each word (and he learned approx 20 a day durinbg his 2nd year!), but LMB still sounds like a baby. but her vocabuary is huge, and her tone & expression are far more advanced than Mstr A even now.

She's lazy in her physical activities. All that worry about her legs turning in, but I've been watching her and she falls over because she can't be bothered to pick her feet up off the ground! In fact, given the choice, she wouldn't walk anywhere! Mstr A, and now LMD, both insisted on walking everywhere as soon as they worked out how to do it - so the pram was packed away completely by the time Mstr A was about 18 months old. LMB had the advantage of the double buggy, but even now, when LMB wants to walk everywhere, LMB still wants to be pushed around with her feet up. We took her scooter to school the other day, as Mstr A always scoots to school. She did it fine f0r half the distance, then i let her stand on it & pushed her the rest of the way for speed, and that's it, she won't put her feet on the ground at all any more!

She's lazy in her academic stuff too. If i sit down and do letters/colours/shapes etc with her, she'll answer my first one or two questions, then not bother any more. yet at bedtime tonight she just "read" a whole story to me!

So maybe that's why blonds have more fun - they're too lazy to do anything complicated:-)

    Zoe gets like this too....I just won't put up with it. I know she's not like it at school, and lately the threat of 'talking to Mrs Sheather' has been enough of a motivation. That and when she can't be bothered tidying up I tell her i'll do it for her, but I just put everything straight into the bin! When it comes to vocab and stuff, its never been an issue, but physically we do have to push a little harder. Here's hoping it's just a phase hey?

    Okay, now I know you can't possibly be saying all blondes are lazy, right? ;-) Although I will admit, of my two kiddos, one blonde and the other dark, the blonde is much lazier. We're were wondering if it was a gender thing, let the females wait on the male and all that crap, but now you've given me something else to think about. Now I just have to figure out how this works, since I'm blonde and I'm the hardest working person in the house. Hmmmm, it's so hard to focus on this and think it through, oh look, someone brought doughnuts, mmmfffmm, munch, so what were we talking about? ;-)
