Nayana hits the bottle!


Small poster paint bottles hold an immense fascination for Nayana. Wawa botil, she calls them. Being basically lazy, and a practical sort of mom, I let her play with the bottles, but didn’t let her discover what was inside them. Trust the impractical parent, the truly creative one, to help her do that! Before breakfast yesterday, Amit handed her a brush and they explored the insides of the luscious bottles.
This is her work, with her at the helm and on the brush. When we put it up, she frowned at it and then said imperiously, “Dimove!” which is herspeak for “Remove!”
Not quite pleased with her first efforts at an artwork? Hmm… I wonder who that reminds me of! (see post called On Working Together below).

wow picasso/hussain in the making PLEASE preserve first artwork (you can use it as invitation to B'day party. I did that with my brattina's 1st attempt 'felt pen on paper'and it was a great hit with all moms)
Do hang on to ALL montessorie mutterings for a best selling novella by Naina.
Please heed the 'voice of 16 years of experience'and much more acquired knowledge.

Hee hee ! I can picture the Madam demanding that you should 'Dimove' her first creation. May be she is just asking for a better agent, and doesnt know that many words yet.
