Happy Birthday!

Its that time of the year when I look at Kit and wonder where the time has gone. Wasn't it yesterday that she was born and came back home from hospital? Kit turns 7 today and she still feels like the little one...small hands and feet, heart warming smiles and silly jokes!!

The day started at 5:45 am (both Kit and Kat had the alarm set for that early) - then began the treasure hunt. Kat had prepared a very interesting map of home with a trail for Kit to follow to retrieve all her gifts. Kit absolutely loved it!! Her most loved gift was the bunk bed for her dolls. So cute!

Happy 7th Birthday My challenge of the day was to prepare a strawberry cake from scratch and I am proud to say that it turned out excellent - in fact, its the best cake I have ever made and I have been baking for more than a decade now. I even made the piping gel myself when I realised there was no tube left at home for fancy message on cake. Hubby and Kat were super pleased and Kit was speechless when she saw the cake - I am SO happy that it turned out great!

Another year...closer to teens...Kit we love you!

P.S. In the meantime I am working on a brand new cake recipe for Kat for Feb!

Kit's creation for fall for Show and Tell at school ended up so cute.

Well done Kit! We love you!

Wheelchair:(

Kit and I take the bus every Saturday to her Music School - it is a time I cherish and we play some nice word games on the way. I love it!

It's become a weekly ritual - we get on the bus and Kit knows that she has to find a seat and sit while I punch the card. Last Saturday, it was so hilarious - as we got on the bus, Kit wanted to sit on one of the front seats. Here is what happened next.

Kit: "Can we sit on these front ones - please, please , please?"
Me: "No. It's no point - these seats are for disabled people and if someone old gets on the bus, we'll have to get up. There are so many seats at the back, lets take those ones instead."

So we both, went at the back and sat down. I then told Kit, "when mummy gets old THEN we can sit on those seats at the front."

It was meant as a joke to get a conversation started but Kit on the other hand took it very seriously and remarked: "Actually mummy if you're lucky, it would be even better if you had a wheelchair because then you would get a seat even if one wasn't available as the chair ties on a different place"

What could I say??!!! Yeah Kit - looking forward to my old age!!

The Tooth Fairy visit!
Posted By SLK on Thursday, May 10, 2012   { 0 Comment(s) }
OK...so it FINALLY happened!! After days of tugging and pulling, Kit lost her first tooth and was she excited?? She was over the moon – after all now that one tooth has given way to adult teeth and not to forget she is now in the league of great role models like Kat!

Every afternoon (after having ‘worked’ on her loose tooth for the majority of the bus ride) Kit would come running to me after school to show me the progress. It was actually adorable – the way she wouldn’t brush her teeth hard (I think that one might have been intentional!) or chew on that side. She wasn’t even happy about drinking, always fearing that she might accidentally swallow her tooth and then she would have nothing for the tooth fairy...

Tooth FairySO when it happened in the morning, Kit was overjoyed! From the moment she had noticed a loose tooth, Kat had given Kit her own tooth fairy box. Within minutes the great little tooth was wrapped up in tissue and placed inside the box – right next to the window (in case the tooth fairy lost her way and spent too much time looking for it!)

Kit kept on telling me all day how her friends had told her that the tooth fairy gives chocolate coins, so naturally I made a mental note to buy some before night so I could do the same. It was only around bedtime that I realised that I had forgotten to do the single most talked about task – I had totally forgotten about the chocolate coin!! Kat was very disappointed in me and when I put Kit to sleep, I had no idea what I was going to do...

As always, I got into the kitchen and invited food to talk to me. I know it sounds weird but sometimes I actually do that – when I have no way of knowing what to make for dinner, I open the refrigerator and the pantry and somehow can see food that I can cook by using what I have. I like to think these are the makings of a great cook but never the less, this saved me! When I opened the pantry, I immediately saw some Disney chocolates which had not been eaten (surprisingly) for a while. I knew I could not use these as such so I carefully took out the chocolate part and very creatively wrapped it in foil paper and voila the chocolate coin was ready!

Chocolate CoinImagine Kit’s surprise when she found the coin in place of the tooth (it rests safely in my ‘baby’ drawer) – chocolate eaten, enjoyed and the whole adventure of the first tooth gone is over...I have to admit, Kit looks awfully cute with that little gap in her teeth!

Variations
Posted By SLK on Friday, February 24, 2012   { 0 Comment(s) }
The year starts...too much cold and then once the weather thaws, I feel the school suddenly comes to life and we have one thing after another scheduled every few days. It was nice to hibernate for a while!

Kat goes to music school every week and one of her favourite classes is composition. It only takes a good teacher to unravel the artist in a creative child. Kat has shown immense talent in composition and we are SO proud of her. The music school had a concert last week where there was a world premier of all the budding composers – as the pieces tend to be extremely difficult, the faculty played them and it was a heart warming experience to hear Kat’s composition being played so beautifully. Her first piano composition is called Variations and I was mesmerised for the entire time. So proud of her! She is now working on another Oriental one and plans to call it Sachi(for happiness and blessing in Japanese).

Kit, on the other hand is trying to copy Kat and is heavily inspired by her compositions – so the other day she decided to compose a song. She has called her song “You are my only love” and I cannot express how cute it is when she sings along. Of course, her playing on the piano and the notes she has written do not match up so much but she has made such a grand effort!

Now we have 2 singing concerts to attend next week followed by Kat’s 5 day school trip. In between that I have to be in Kit’s school for a celebration and a couple of bake sales and book fairs at both their schools...

As long as the weather stays mild...we can do it. After all, Kat has to wear the black dress and ballet flats for the concerts...Rain God – have mercy please!!
