There were so many different ways to start writing a blog for Mothersbliss and then we thought - what is the perfect joy of being a mother? Apart from the biological happiness of becoming a mother (might be questionable sometimes, you might say), what we all experience with our children on a day-to-day basis is so special - it can range from happiness, to anxiety, to craziness! Anyone with a child will know what this means and anyone with more than one child will SURELY know what this means!
This part of our website is dedicated to children - it is about children and what they do which makes us want to laugh and cry (sometimes both) on a hectic or a not-so-busy day. Kit for Kit! is a simple attempt at capturing the magical moments we all experience with our children at some point in our everyday simple lives. I hope it will strike a chord with someone, somewhere. Your comments are welcome and will only help to strike chords with others elsewhere...so no comment (long or short) will go unnoticed. Please help keep this section buzzing and alive!
As for me, just for introduction, you can call me Sarabi from the Lion King (why? because I am convinced that my younger daughter is Simba - she is so naughty and playful and when it comes to meat, you mention it and she stops in her tracks and jumps to it from wherever she is!) Update: Kit is now vegan but she is still my little Simba:)
Father - we all call him 'Papa'
9 year old - Kit
16 year old - Kat
Together I will refer to them as Kit Kat as this was my favourite chocolate bar as a kid (wow! was I ever one of them??) I must admit though, that this name for them is now heavily inspired by the term 'Tit-for-Tat' as that is how majority of the incidents in our house are dealt with internally by them both!! An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.
Of course I loved Kit Kat when I was 'young' (are they listening?) so I thought this was appropriate as I could see a touch of my childhood in my girls this way.
Tit for Tat! Kit for Kat! - say it in the same tone and you know what I mean. This is what I deal with most days so again it made so much sense.
Now this is the deal - if Kat does something little Kit tries to ape it to prove it that she can do it better and here age does not seem to matter. So Kit for Kat!
Each one of them is unique in their own way.
I really hope you enjoy reading this blog as much I enjoy writing and sharing it!
