Kit for Kat!

Bad Mother
Posted By SLK on Monday, June 21, 2010
As usual Little Kit is awake just when I need to work at my office in the morning!

She is sitting on her little chair next to my big one trying to distract me from my work and I am getting very frustrated. She brings one toy after another and tries to force me into conversations with her.

She vanishes for a few seconds and comes back all decked up in bracelets and necklaces and announces (fluttering her eyelids!) “I want to be a mermaid please. I don’t want to be human”. I can’t resist giggling with her – she does look so funny – Kit is so much into Ariel, Melody and their entire clan, that Kat is always hiding DVDs from her fearing that she will have to watch them in the car with her.

Next she’s just brought out some book which she wants me to read with her. When I said “No” (and I hated myself for this – as it’s like “who says NO to a book?”) Kit said “Can I read it myself?”. This made me feel even worse but as I was so busy I said it was fine. So she carried on with some foreign language in the background and then when she realised she was getting nowhere with me, she made the most heart piercing statement ever. I will enroll her for drama lessons soon...I must!

Kit: “You’re not a good mother, are you?”

I froze. I stopped doing whatever I was doing and looked up at her dumbstruck. How on earth did she pick that one up? How does Kit know that? That was my darkest secret ever!!

That did it. That worked. She got me. I am with her reading to her now and I have an Everest of a task ahead of me but that can wait…I can’t be a ‘not good’ mother, can I?

Bye Bye Goldfish

First thing Kit says on being told to look after her goldfish. "What will happen if I don't look after it properly? Will it run away?"

I just wish goldfish could run away. We have a history of goldfish coming and going and then comes the rotten cleaning part... fish running away is so much simpler than having to net them out and scaring Kat! Kit is fine with it. Day 5 now and she comes in every now and then asking "Is it die yet?"
Don't blame her - started with 6 fish in 2 bowls and are down to 1 fish now! This one seems like a die hard actually...

Bye Bye Goldfish

Teach a Lesson
Posted By SLK on Sunday, June 13, 2010
Typical fight scenario - dolls have been mixed up and Kit has quietly sneaked into Kat's room and 'shared' some dolly clothes without Kat's permission which is different from 'stealing'. Kat is furious with the 'Restricted Zone' sign up on the door. Kit is angrily waiting outside and when asked says : "I am nignoring (ignoring) Kat and will teach her a lesson when she comes out!"
Has Kit been spending too much time with me lately??
