just so you know, half an hour back, it took five repeats before the noise emanating from my mouth reached the ears of a certain person whose nose was buried in a book.

WJ, dipali : I had carried a bunch of books that she has outgrown being read to - she reads haltingly - many of these books have been memorised by her. so now the fun is to know whats written on the page- and try and match it with B-l-u-e h-a-t, g-r-e-e-n h-a-t ( a delightful book by sandra Boynton)
the place: the living room of a colonial cottage thats opened up to visitors- very pretty.

anja: yup, the world opens up some more

aj: well, until she tires of our incredible histrionics while reading to her, she is going to want her own inhouse theatre performance at the end of each day!

choxbox: yeah, everymilestone we gush has the capacity to make the parent weep. the last milestone i gushed at was when long sentences with complex thoughts were constructed. now you can mostly see me at the wall of my house- banging my head.

Oh yay! Congratulations Sanah..The fun begins.

Mine doesn't allow me any poetic licenses or any shortening of words due to lack of time, she's quick to read and point out what I missed.
It makes me terribly proud and a little annoyed at the same time - I'm no longer her infallible hero.

she used to fake the fact that she knew how to read- she knew what was written on each page-so she would just rattle the damn story- word to word.
now that she is actually trying to read its fun- alphabet by alphabet she tries to form the word. word by word- the narrative.
