Lemons & Lemonade

I love how kids view the world- totally different perspective.
It's a cold, gray, not-quite-rainy day and Henry's happily bouncing around like it's 70 degrees and sunny.

Henry: Mama! Today is the BEST day for cows!
(OK, I'll go for it) Why, Henry?
Henry: Because the rain makes the GRASS grow an' they don't have to bend over so far to EAT!

Lemons into lemonade, indeed. Love him.

Feeding the Dog

Figured out why Maggie kept licking Kat's face this morning like she was a lollipop (she wants her breakfast).
Kat "helpfully" fed the dog by scooping out 2-3 pieces at a time and haphazardly dumping them in her bowl, then pointing at the wayward pieces commanding Maggie to "Eat! One!"
Guess she got tired of the bitty scoops and handed me the cup which I filled halfway and handed back to her. Wasn't good enough apparently because she dumped it back in and shoved the cup at me- "More! FULL!"

Cats n' Dogs n' Fashion Statements

Kat wore her *new* (used) Hello Kitty dress to church this morning, complete with a Hello Kitty bow in her hair. Now she's laying down for her nap and I heard her chattering away to herself so I peeked in.

She's laying on her back, rubbing her belly and saying "Nice ow-fit! Meow-Meow! Nice! Ow-Fit!!"

Sunday mornings

7:40am on a Sunday. Our morning so far:

Kat woke up cranky at 5:30am- diaper change & didn't want to be held/rocked. "Someone" put a talking toy in her crib and when she finally settled down, I could hear that darn thing talking to itself nonstop but decided that was less annoying than the meltdown that would ensue if I tried to remove it.

Kat woke up again at 7am (at least she went back down) and hollered "Mama!" in a tone of voice that cut right through me until I got her up.

Henry woke up shortly after that, frantically wanting to see his Dada who was gallantly shoveling snow. They both bided their time playing dressup and greeted snowy-Dada wearing a dragon costume and a Hello Kitty hat on backwards.

Henry's "shaving" with Jim now. Kat demanded "Mee-Mouf! Waffle!" and is bundled up in a sleeping bag on the couch watching Minnie Mouse in Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and alternatively nibbling on her waffle and blowing on a Batman whistle. Ugh, must remember to clean the waffle bits from that later.

My favorite part so far? Kat saying "Sank you!" in her little voice when I handed her a waffle.
