of sprouting molars and sound pre-mixing

bad bad day. after a somewhat painful first tooth this was the next really traumatic one. the molar. and i am kicking myself- i did not see all the symptoms for the past three days. she was in terrible pain all day yesterday. for the first time clingy- cranky- miserable. And then i spotted it- a flash of white deep inside the mouth.

working on the sound track of a cut that you have been working on for months is quite a liberating experience. a simple fade out before a cut, shifting space through a sound cut etc etc - the cut gets transformed. and ofcourse a whole new set of possibilities and meanings emerge. but with sanah's molar ripping through her gums, this process was nothing short of traumatic.

Oh poor you - the film and the teething! yes, i think all moms go thru this - esp. well-read, obsessive moms like us who stay at home and work at the same time. at times i feel that if i had a job, i'd be tense all day, but at least she'd have some space from me - which i now feel is crucial... that's what playgroup's for, i guess! i love the lil yellow shoes!

hey, give advice on playgroups. i find them over structured and over-priced. would love to continue this mad free play at home. but sanah loves being with other kids and runs towards any and every school bus filled with kids.

oh gosh no... i hate the idea of play groups and children in a structured atmosphere.. and it costs an arm and a leg here. unfortunately my friendly brat too seems to want more friends.. this is my opinion !!

hmmm, exactly what i think. sanah is also really good with other kids of all ages- shares her toys etc etc. and i hate the idea of her being taught silly nursery rhymes and songs. i make up nonsense rhymes all the time for her- i really think she likes them. :)
But she is so eager to play with other kids - and i find it very hard to go down every evening and socialise with the other moms- instead i take her to different parks in the vicinity. So there is no kid that she is able to play with regularly.
and even i feel that unless the child speaks clearly i would not be comfortable sending her to school. she should be able to tell us what she does, what she likes, what she does not like...( same reason i will not leave her alone with a maid/caretaker until she is able to talk)
as space bar said sometome back- wish we likeminded moms could form our own school! i know friends who had done that in b'lore.
