Now that Kai is choosing her own outfits…

with one comment

Dressing herself means that she can wear as many striped items as she wants.

Dressing herself also means: 3 shirts, pants, a tutu and her frog boots.

Being a child who knows what she wants, she will also try and paint on her outfit...

What Kai says

with 3 comments

I love listening to Kai figure out how to use words for the ideas she’s trying to express.  Some of it isn’t all that fun for us, though.


Kai: Mama mommy.  Wake up. Get up.  Right now!


Me: (singing along with Kai’s music)
Kai: No! Mama, stop. No talk. No sing.  Just Kai.


Mrs Bean: Kai, you need to go to sleep
Kai: Mommy, I trying.


Mrs Bean: When we get home it’ll be time for napping.
Kai: (very angry) No! No say that!!! Stop it.


Kai: Yesterday I go to gym with Simon.  I happy.


Mrs Bean: Before we get in the car, you need to go potty.
Kai: No, Mommy get more pants.


Kai: One Two and Iguh-nition BLASTOFF

Heard Indirectly: I Winning, Dancing at Bedtime

with one comment

I Winning

Kai likes to run right a boy who lives down the street, she’ll run while he rides his pre-bike (pedal-less 2-wheeled bike).  The other day, his dad was telling me about how they were travelling around the block and Kai was about 10 feet in front of her friend when she turned her head, smiled a giant smile and yelled “I WINNING!!”

I’m pretty sure she learned that phrase from her preschool…

Dancing at Bedtime

Somebody suggested to Mrs Bean that it might help to sing to Kai at bedtime.  She still doesn’t fall asleep very easily or very quickly.  So…Mrs Bean tried and Kai ended up dancing on the bed to the singing.  So…singing at bedtime is a no-go.
