I disagree that Thom's mom is a stud. She has clearly spoiled him.

Marta

I love your Moomin - also his moral relativist friend.

Mary

For the record, I am not Thom's mom. Althought sometimes my kids are just like Thom. I guess it's because they're little.

You have infinite amounts of patience. I will think of you next time I want to scream, "Leave mommy alone for just 5 minutes!!!"

Thom's mom is the one with infinite patience... she seriously rocks in that she is always ready to teach her son new things or be there to help him.

He and Moomin do the best "zoo education" shows for me, taking turns holding up stuffed animals and explaining while the other one uses a pointer and the big world map on the wall to show where the animal comes from and its long journey to their Rescue Zoo! Their authoritative manner and fake-science... it's killingly great.

But anyway, I am a firm believer in the virtues of ignoring children in manageable doses. It is important, when establishing the parameters of ignoring, to promise attention afterwards, and make sure to follow through on that promise. I have also... when Moomin is frustrated... set the kitchen timer on myself so that he can call me on my promises when he hears the timer bell.

My uncle's music school in San Francisco, Sunset Academy of Music. He's a really great guitar teacher for adults or kids, a good listener with a sense of humor and intuitive understanding of teaching.
