Kit for Kat!

Hurricane Weekend
Posted By SLK on Monday, September 6, 2010   { 0 Comment(s) }
So here we were thinking of a wonderful holiday to Cape Cod for the long weekend only to be ruined by a hurricane red alert there followed by waiting till Thursday and then last minute cancellation on Friday..So we found ourselves with 3 long days ahead with Kat complaining that we NEVER do anything interesting and that this was going to be her worst weekend ever (she tends to get melodramatic most days!) and Kit following suit after closely watching Kat’s reactions.

Papa and I did feel terrible as we were looking forward to this last break before school starts but then we don’t usually go around driving at gusty winds of 125mph and more! So couldn’t blame the girls for feeling let down but when your feelings are mirrored in your kids, it makes you feel even worse, right? Papa and I then set on the task of entertaining them over the weekend and to make it fun for them in whatever way we could.

Italian beauty Friday (the afternoon we would have left – *sob*) evening we all went to an Italian place for dinner. Kat LOVES pasta – I can’t remember but I’m pretty sure it must be the first food word she learnt to say as well! As for Kit, she loves pizza when it comes to Italian but some fancy places don’t do pizza so ended up with pasta which was fine as some days she would rather be like Kat then be like Papa (he is such a Pizza person!) We had a leisurely dinner (so much so that at one time we thought the server had forgotten us!) and strolled back home – at one point, Papa kissed Kat and Kit froze in the middle of the street and said she was not going home. Eventually, she confessed that she was upset Papa had kissed Kat! The Final Jam The next 5 minutes were spent in the Kit and Papa game of “Who do you love more? Papa or Mummy or Kat?” while Kat and I walked back home – it’s so much fun to talk like an adult to Kat now. She is my big girl. Followed by the Premiere of Camp Rock II (The Final Jam) on tele, it was the end to a great Friday at home.

An apple a day keeps the doctor away? Well, if that was true our entire building is very fit and healthy now! Kit Kat went apple picking on Saturday and we picked so many apples (Gala only – family favourites) that we shared with everyone – the doormen, our neighbours, babysitter – it was a fun time we had between the hay ride, picking and the actual abundance of apples! On the way back, the car wash was a huge success and its always such a joy to watch Kit with her grin from ear to ear throughout the duration of the wash. In fact we got so carried away with the adventure that we got locked in and I had to manually let us out!

Kit has this fascination with Brooklyn Bridge. For the last few weeks, she has been talking about it ever so often that we finally decided to walk through it on Sunday. We’ve seen it a million times while driving but I guess walking makes all the difference. What a beauty it is – Kat got a bit tired especially when she saw Kit piggy back on Papa all the way back! Ate lunch in a roadside bistro where I fell in love with a Hibiscus drink while Kat had 2 tall glasses of a Bahama smoothie while Papa had something called Loomi. Brooklyn Bridge This trip ended with playtime in the park, climbing on rocks followed by Kat teaching Kit how to wish and throw pebbles in the water. It was such an adorable sight! The next half an hour was spent with all of us sitting there, simply throwing pebbles in the water and having a little competition...

What’s on the agenda today? Today will be Papa’s day as I need to get some things in order for school tomorrow. They will be going for a swim and to the park later. Oh yes, Kat wants a little manicure (a special treat before she starts school tomorrow) so I have to sort that one out later in the evening.

It was a nice weekend...sometimes things change for the better. I’m glad we didn’t make it to Cape Cod, hurricane or not – we spent some priceless, precious and happy moments together...
