When we started out with our unschooling journey, we felt a little like knights in shining armor freeing ourselves from our own self-imposed shackles. Hence the name of the blog.

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.
