Learning To Button Up

Sharlene is learning to button up her clothes recently. The only time she can practise doing this is when she’s putting on her pyjamas at night.



A few nights ago after I'd brushed her teeth, she put on this pyjamas herself and tried to button up. She managed to button up the first button quite fast and went on to the second one. She had some difficulty at this point but refused to give up when I offered to help her. From a standing position she proceeded to sit down on the floor trying very hard to put the tiny button through the tiny buttonhole. Each time when she’s almost able to do it she missed it again. :(


Still trying her best to button up here. While she was struggling there I took out a vest from her closet and told her to put this on instead. This hand-me-down vest from her cousin has bigger buttons, which is easier for her to grip. Moreover, she’d successfully buttoned up this vest before.


Finally, she managed to button up her vest and was happy with her achievement. She even shouted, Yes, I did it!
