She had remembered on which intersection he had been standing and recognized it from the other direction.
Mrs. Bluth and Adaline were walking past our old apartment last week. Adaline started to head towards our old door as if we had never left the place. It has been nearly 5 months since we moved - she was only 18 months old at the time - but she remembered.
The last couple times we went to the pediatrician, we were told to discipline with distraction. If we needed to take something away from Adaline, distract her, take it away, and then let her continue on her way. She would have typically forgotten what she had been doing. If she was throwing a fit, we could promise her a treat when we got home. And she would have forgotten by the time we arrived.
This is no longer working so well. She remembers promises that we make and she holds us accountable. She doesn't get distracted so easily. And if we take something away from her, she will remember exactly where we put and remember to find it there at a later time. We are going to have to get more creative.
