To demonstrate that she has understood, Kit says “You mean you need the same age?” I think she was referring to the length! Never mind I got the message, she added a new word (length) to her vocabulary (and used it million times after that!) and we ended up with a brilliant Lego house and tree…
On this trip I noticed that Kat has developed a distinct love for 2 things – her hair and lip gloss. She was sharing a cabin with her cousin and it was impossible to get her out of the bathroom on time any one day - hair had to be done to perfection only to be messed up by a naughty cousin hiding behind the door…and then the disappearance into the bathroom again! Lips had to glossed and then re glossed and then re glossed…all the way home!
Once we touched land (hurray!), Kit Kat were off to Toys R Us with Papa for some princess shopping for Kit as she’s been wearing the same Princess Aurora dress for the last 6 months it seems…and guess what? Kat returned with a new fashion lip gloss set complete with nail polish (Selena Gomez)! Oh Dear…
Kit is busy with a Dress Up trunk full of Princess costumes which is adorable and Kat as usual with her lip gloss (I hope it’s a fad and she will come around though I must admit they smell heavenly!) and I’m off to cook some real food now and get the family used to having less for dinner!
*whisper* we ate so much in the last 5 days, even if we skip meals for next week straight, we’ll all still be overweight…
In all this drama, Kat has devised a very clever way of getting her work done from Kit. Whenever she needs anything done from little Kit, she will bat her eyelids and say: “Kit honey, will you do this for me?”
Now, no matter how naughty Kit’s been all day, when Kat says this to her in her characteristic sugary tone (which only she can use), Kit will do anything for her. Kat will very rarely use this to get any of our work done but will get all her jobs done from Kit this way and Kit will oblige happily and obediently!
Sisterly love…comes handy once in a while!
In the course of the trip, the tour guide pointed to an island so I explained to Kit.
Me: “Any land surrounded on all sides by water is called island, right?”
Kit nodded very seriously giving me the impression that she had understood the term perfectly. Little did I know that her little mind was already working on educating me?!
After a few moments we crossed the market square and Kit heard the tour guide say the word ‘Street’ so she looks at me pointedly and says:
Kit: “You know when something is NOT surrounded on all sides by water, what it is called?”
Me: (Confused as by now I had lost all interest in what the tour guide was saying – breakfast and sun have this effect on me!) “No”
Kit: (Satisfied to have been first with the answer) It’s called Street.
Oh..Allright! I’ll remember this then…!
