  Mama's day: Legitimate peripheral participation

Alexander is getting into a period then he is interested in everything else but his own toys. We usually give him any safe household object within arms reach and he happily explores it. He prefers to eat grass and leaves and not the food we put in front of him... He has been always curious to see people, but till recently couldn't stand too much noise and too crowded parties (which made our networking at Reboot a bit more challenging :). However, last weekend it changed - he actually preferred crowded family party to quiet walking in a garden.

All that gives a new meaning to the concept of legitimate peripheral participation: not living separate, "baby" life, but soaking the details of life as other people know it. In this respect I really like the point of The continuum concept on babies being in a middle of activities of their parents (despite of some other concerns with the book).
