She Was Reading By The Age of Three 2

Having twins made me a more relaxed parent.
Punya anak kembar membuatku orang tua yang lebih santai.

When you watch two kids grow up at the same time, it makes you less concerned about benchmarks.
Ketika kamu melihat dua anak tumbuh pada saat yang bersamaan, ini membuatmu tidak begitu memperdulikan tentang standar pencapaian.

Each of them had different talents and struggles.
Masing-masing dari mereka memiliki bakat dan usaha yang berbeda.

He could do all the physical stuff first.
Anak laki-lakiku bisa melakukan hal-hal fisik terlebih dulu.

We had to put a net on the crib because he was always climbing out.
Kami harus memasang jaring di tempat tidurnya karena dia selalu memanjat keluar.

He could swim first.
Dia bisa berenang terlebih dulu.

He learned to ride a bike several years earlier than her.
Dia belajar naik sepeda beberapa tahun lebih awal dari saudara perempuannya.

But she was potty trained first.
Tapi anak perempuanku bisa pup sendiri terlebih dulu.

She was reading by the age of three.
Dia bisa membaca mulai umur tiga tahun.

And she was much better at drawing pictures– her fire trucks always had four wheels, and his were just red scribbles.
Dan dia lebih jago menggambar — truk pemadam kebakarannya selalu punya empat roda, sedangkan gambar anak laki-lakiku hanya coret-coretan merah.

If I’d only had one child, I’d probably have been obsessing over these talents and struggles.
Jika aku hanya punya satu anakn, aku mungkin akan terobsesi tentang bakat dan usaha ini.

I think every parent needs to feel like their child is special.
Aku rasa setiap orang tua perlu merasa bahwa anak mereka istimewa.

But twins made me realize that all children grow differently.
Tapi anak kembar membuatku menyadari bahawa semua anak tumbuh secara berbeda.

And it’s absurd to rank and classify them at such a young age.
Dan aneh untuk menggolongkan dan mengklasifikasikan mereka di usia yang sangat muda.
