Kit for Kat!

The first

My girls are hairy! They take on Papa but it is what it is. For 12+ long years, I kept Kat pacified that we would work on getting her legs waxed in high school...she always had this hope that one day, she would be hair free! So imagine her surprise when I agreed to get it done in this summer break (3 years ahead of schedule!)

The appointment was for yesterday but the preparation started a couple of weeks ago. All the right friends were texted, all information gathered from the internet. Ready, Set, Go...

waxWe had the appointment at the European Wax Centre, just two blocks away and those 2 blocks were probably the longest ones for Kat. She was so nervous and kept checking with me if it would hurt. Of course it does hurt but how do you explain the nature of the pain to someone who has no idea about it. So, I did prepare her a bit but the rest she had to learn:(

I must say times have moved on since my days…I had my laser treatment done a few years ago and have not had the need to visit a wax centre for the last several years now. I was amazed at the self drying wax that you peeled off the skin, just like that! (no more cloth strips) – I was with Kat in the room and I could not help but stare at the wax wonder…very neat indeed!

A lot of pain for Kat followed by a day or so of feeling very strange and wobbly (in her own words) but now she is fine and back to normal – of course the end result was marvellous – she cannot wait for the next one!

Fairy Magic for Real
Posted By SLK on Friday, July 20, 2012   { 0 Comment(s) }
We’ve all been through this. Little girls love fairies, fairy tales – after all, who doesn’t like some magic in their childhood (I could still do with some myself even now!)
Barbie Fairy Secret
So Kit sits down to watch this fairy movie (Barbie - A Fairy Secret) with stars in her eyes already – believing in it already even before it starts. The 1 hour something passes without many comments, Kit mesmerised by it all. (*adorable*)

You would think that was it – another end to a nice movie perfect for that age. What is funny is that children are truly like sponges, absorbing everything they see and hear. This movie really hit it BIG with Kit! (Who would think Barbie could be so compelling!!)

As its summer break, Kat has now taken over the story reading job at night time for Kit and likes to put her to bed (I love it so much – suits me JUST FINE!) That night, after putting Kit to sleep, Kat comes to me and says:

Kat: “Mummy, you’re never going to believe this. Kit thinks she is a fairy and she is serious!”

I couldn’t do anything but smile as it did sound super cute but Kat promised me not to tell Kit and said she would get her to tell me herself so I could be more convinced.

So next morning, Kat talks to Kit and then Kit comes to me:

Kit: (all shy and eyes down) “Mummy, I have to tell you a secret”

Me: “Yes Kit, what is it?”

Kit: “I am a fairy for real. YES I know I am!”

Me: “Really?” (trying not to smile too hard so as to give myself away – trying to be serious). “How do you know that?”

Kit: “Actually at 10 minutes past midnight, I get up every night and I get these fairy wings and can fly. That is why you don’t see me because it’s so late at night. I get them because I believe in them”

Me: “That is so interesting and magical!” (Not mentioning the fact that my eyes are almost glued to the video monitor in her room every night)

Kit: “See I can jump so high as well – this is ONLY because I am a fairy!”

And Kit jumps a very average jump but her eyes tell me that she believes this jump was enormous (truly a leap of faith!) purely because of the fairy magic involved.

The conversation ends with me acting very convinced with the fairy magic discovery and Kit content that I was convinced. She jumps back to her room – ready for another day of dress up and make-believe and I am left wondering where have all the years gone by? It seems like a few years ago when I would have done something like this too…these days are truly precious – life is so simple and really magical.

God bless little girls!
