Can I presumptuously make an added suggestion?

Can you record some of your play? Like what your thoughts are drifting to when you dress the doll or why one Barbie assumes one role and another gets to be someone else. In some of the play therapy we do with kids, we know that they can assign parts of themselves to different dolls or stuffed animals. So if we have an animal who is hurt (remember our toddlers are disabled) and the child puts this animal way up high, we ask if he feels sort of afraid down on the floor with the other kids. There are so many clues in play and in day dreams.

I just read a neat article about the value of day dreams. It talked about these fantasies as a really valuable window into someones unconscious. Some people discount day dreams because essentially the person is awake and controlling the action. But there was a case made for looking at the choices made, such as why escape to a beach instead of a shopping mall, etc. etc.

I hope we get updates on this project!
