Another episode of funny things

Yesterday after dinner we picked up some ice cream and had some in the car. It was getting late and both of the kids were getting tired. After driving for about 15 minutes, we noticed Kayla dozing off in the back. I tried to keep her awake by offering her some more ice cream and of course she immediately perked up and was wide awake. Right before offering the ice cream to Kayla, Kristin was blabbering her mouth off and fidgeting around. Next thing you know, I see Kristin pretending to be asleep with a smirk on her face. She's a clever one.


More kphonics:

Madam Item: "Can we watch Madam Item? I want Madam Item". 

(American Idol)

Friderday: "Can we go to the park on Friderday?"

(Not sure what that is?)

Cassidy= Daddy, I'm hungry. I want to eat some Cassidy! Can you make some Cassidy? (Quesadilla)

Yellow Polish= I want Yellow Polish on my fingersnails (pointing to toes). Can I have some Yellow Polish? (Nail Polish)

Mezzanine= Daddy, why you always look at Mezzanine. Can I see your mezzanine? (Magazine)

And on top of her own language, the other day she goes:

"Oh, I'm dying. I'm dying", all the while clutching her heart and making a beating motion.

She cracks me up.

fast and furious

fast and furious

Kristin is a fast talker.

Kayla gets furious with Kristin and her fast talking.

Seems like the more they play together, the more they fight and argue. I'm really not looking forward to the teen years.

the sweetest things


The kids say the most random things sometimes, and it is always so sincere.

Kristin had been introduced to the concept of people passing away when she asked about Selina's father a while back. Selina told her that he had gone to the stars above. Then, just last night, Kristin said, "Mommy, if you go up to the stars, I will come get you and bring you back down."


Now on the other hand, Kayla just cracks me up with her random sayings. After picking her up from school the other day, she goes:

Kayla: I want Mulan song. I want Mulan CD.

Me: We don't have that CD Kayla.

Kayla: We can go buy it. We can go buy it at Target.

Me: Honey, we can't buy everything you want. Things cost money you know?

Kayla: I can get you money. I can get money for YOU.

Me: Really? Do you have money?

Kayla: No, but we can go to Target to get some.

Kristin has been expressing interest in gardening as of late, and Selina picked up some gardening gear. Hopefully the weather will clear up a bit and the dirt becomes a little less muddy so we can start building a little garden for her. In the meantime, she'll just have to water Kayla.

hold hands, pick flowers, and wear rain boots when it's not raining.

They also like to fight over the smallest things, scream at the top of their lungs, and sing and dance like no one is watching.

It's so amazing to watch them grow and play together.

Sometimes they do enjoy a little alone time though.

Progress report

FEB_81 (1)

Kayla had her first progress report from school the other week, and it sure wasn't pretty. They use a simple grading system of:

G= Good Progress (doing well)
W= Working on Skill (needs improvement in this area)
NA= Not applicable (not at her skill level yet)

These were her results:

FEB_84 (1)

So as you can see, she has a lot to work on : / In contrast, Kristin had the same reports as Kayla, but all of her 'grades' were 'G'. It's so funny how the 2 of them are so different.
