Thoughts to share....

Here of late, my beautiful K has comes up with the sweetest, funniest things.

My pink chenille bathrobe hanging on the back of the bathtub door:
K-"Mommy, I love your pink karate jacket!"
Me-"Thank you!  I wear it while I'm vacuuming and doing my karate moves."

On cherished childhood songs:
K-"Old MacDonald had a farm, meatball, meatball, meatball"
This is followed by hysterical laughter.

While looking thru our photo album of our trip to the RMI:
K-"Mommy, who is this?"
Me-"That's our friend Miss Laura."
K-"Oh Mommy, she's so beautiful. Just like Princess Delora (Aurora)."

It's all about being the princess.....

Just like G did at this age, K is now going thru what I call "the princess stage".  She can identify the princesses by name, and has claimed Rapunzel and Princess Delaura (Sleeping Beauty) as her favorites.  The strange thing about this is that we have only watched the Rapunzel movie, yet she knows all the princesses.  Pat on the back for that great marketing Disney Co.! 

She has a pretty frequent conversation where she'll ask each one of us "what princess do you want to be", and of course if we don't say the right one, she pick one for us--she's too funny! (even R gets to be a princess!)

Each night we say grace before dinner and K usually starts everyone off.  Her prayer goes like this, "Dear God, thank you for this food, and that I be Rapunzel with long hair."  So I know it's not totally appropriate as a prayer of thanks but she's so cute, because she's so serious about it.

She has a birthday coming up in a couple of weeks-hard to believe that she's going to be 4-and I'm sure there will be lots of princess stuff involved.

So long to February

To say I've been a little slack about posting and keeping this blog up recently, is an understatement.  I've been in such a fog with everyone being sick, my parents having some medical issues, and the dreaded tax season being upon me.  I just haven't had the energy or inclination to put anything out there.

And February was a busy month-there was Chinese New Year, Valentine's Day, the preschool party, PJ day at school, doctor's visits, and did I mention it's tax season?

Chinese New Year celebrated with our local FCC.

K and M wearing their CNY outfits that were handed down from G.
These two are either "best buds" or are doing a WWF takedown on each other.

The lovebugs returned on Valentine's Day with books and candy.
Anyone notice that M is only wearing her onesie and tights in the next picture?  She started the party with a really cute matching sweater and denim jumper.  I was the party mom for the preschool Valentine's Party and while I was setting-up the tables, she went in the bathroom, backed up and fell in the small-sized toilet.  Of all days not to have a change of clothes in my bag.   But you have to admit, my girl was rockin' those sunglasses!

M eating the craft (making necklaces with fruit strings and fruit loops) at the preschool Valentine's Party.

K all ready for Pajama Day at preschool.
These beanbags were one of my best impulse buys.  They actually have a semi-molded seat in them and are just the right size for little legs.  I would have been happier with a different color but it was either purple or black.
New beanbags for the little guys.
The one thing that stands out in all these pics is the sore that is on M's face under her lip--it has necessitated a trip to the pediatrician and a trip to the pediatric dermatologist.  Many creams and some night-time doses of benadryl have finally started to kick-in.  Fingers crossed that my March pics will show the improvement!
