progress and tangents
Thinking of other things I would like to do, if I had more time... like knitting another shawl, doing some embroidery, drawing some figure drawings, listening to more French and maybe some Romanian language online if I can find it, painting more... no time for much of it really, but at least my mind is busy thinking of things.
Esme is absorbing information - using words like 'hexagonal plates' and 'prismatic' - asking me why her bath brush looks crooked in the water 'that's refraction'.. oh.. refraction. The ability she has to gain 'big' words is so strange against the way she misuses all of the little words, still. But everything is moving forward in its way - she has grown very opinionated about her clothing, and now when we disagree about something (like the neighbor's house lighst at night NOT being the carnival) she will say 'I don't want to talk about this with you.' *eep* Progress, yes... the teenager coming out in my six year old *ha*
