The schoolish side of my brain wants so much for my son… the other side wants peace and inner harmony for him. Off and on I think that there has to be hope for my son’s intense lego interest and of course the universe conspired to throw this site and article towards me just as i was wondering if the lego phase was getting a bit much (all in my head of course… Raghu at present breathes, thinks and talks in lego) http://www.brickartist.com/ Go figure… lego can lead to money after all… ooops schoolish mind talking again.
Zoya has shown a passion for dolls recently and was so happy to accept Raghu’s surprise gift of a barbie doll (he found it at a supermarket in the baby aisle and immediately said it was the perfect gift for Z) . She is mothering the doll and acting as hairdresser too. She came accross a barbie for the first time at a homeschooling friend’s house and seemed to enjoy the doll a lot. Raghu had noticed and remembered.
Last night Raghu was having a hard time about some thing while visiting Ravi’s Aunt’s house…. he was standing outside the door without slippers and was quite weepy and sleepy. Zoya kept up a dialogue about what was happening to Raghu “vaghu kying and very very tayyed… no slippers? okay no worry… i give vaghu slippers”… then she placed the pair of slippers lined up perfectly infront of his feet and said “here go vaghu”
So many shifts internally, off late, that i can’t begin to line up and write about them. Slight and small they may be but they definitely make for a more harmonious relationship with the kids.
