THAT'S REALLY COOL! I intend to do the same if I ever have children I hope to see her turn into a great cuber someday!
Wow, that's reviving an ancient post! It has been 12 years - she is now 18, and graduates from high school this year. Unfortunately she mostly lost interest in speedsolving, although she can still solve a cube fairly consistently in less than a minute.

But she did participate in the speedsolving community for a while. She and her older sister both were judges at the 2013 World Championships.

learnt 2 step pll :)
now i have to relearn 2 oll algs (bowtie and headlights) because the 2x2 version ruins the cross and isn't 2 gen
For bowtie I suggest:

F' r U R' U' r' F R
or
x' R U' R' D R U R' D' x

For headlights:

R2 D' R U2 R' D R U2 R
or
R U R' U R U2 R2 U' R U' R' U2 R

I actually use one or another depending of angle

single: 3:33.53 → 3:31.462
ao50: 4:08.x → 4:04.x
ao100: 4:14.x → 4:13.x

Cranking out more solves on them magnetic sevens. A few more hours of solving should make me solidly sub-4:00, but that'll probably have to wait for next weekend.

The 3 last days, I've focused on PLL learning and other thing. I've paused PB attempts but I still got my first sub 35 without really trying.
my previous pb was a PLL skip, the new one isn't which is encouraging.
As soon as I will know every PLL, I will try hard and I think I will be able to get sub 25 in a week :)

Got 4 PB today (3x3) and learned PLL Rb
30.04
32.42
32.94
33.64
Fun fact is that I'm super sick, I have slept 2 hours last night but I've still been able to make some progress (-4 sec).
Also my ao100 when from 49 to 46 (which is still way too high

I've learned that for the first time in my little french city, there will be an official competition in May so I will try to be sub 20 (Sub 18 ? I'm ambicious) for it
