LOL Yeah, I crack myself up. Good thing too, since nobody else thinks I'm quite so funny. Actually, the really funny part is the pics. I have laughed so hard looking back over the four years of "Oscar Party" pictures. Do you think Kasen will still indulge me with this crazy idea when she's 12, 13, 16?? Yes, I know, I'm sure the excitment of these Academy Award photo shoots will fade well before age 12 . . . but one can only hope right?
I'm a little slow posting these today because I decided to take Kasen to the park this afternoon. It was a treat for her because she deserved it. Well, it didn't turn out to be such a treat after all. First of all, there was one other little girl on the playground. She and Kasen hit it off and played pretty well together. She was quite a bit older, but Kasen can ususally hold her own around the "big" girls. Then another little girl came along. They all three started playing together and then it happened. I've seen it happen many times before. Why oh why is THREE such a terrible number? Well, the oldest girl got the little girl to start running away from Kasen every time she got anywhere near them. Kasen was crushed and began to cry. And being the Mama Bear that I am, I was MAD. Kasen told me how sad it made her, so I scooped her up in my arms. I told her that they weren't being nice, and that she was never to exclude anyone like that because she knows how it makes her feel. The oldest girl overheard me and tried to tell me that they were just playing chase. Yeah, right. I was on the playground the entire time and I heard and saw the whole thing, up close and personal.
Well, the oldest girl knew that I was angry, so she put her arm around Kasen and walked her over to the sidewalk. She asked Kasen if she wanted to play with her scooter. It really was too advanced for Kasen and she didn't have her helmet anyway. Well, Kasen started to cry because I wouldn't let her play. Then she began to cry even louder. I was thinking, "Oh great, she was finally starting to calm down and now this." Then I noticed she was grabbing her leg and she started screaming, "It hurts. It hurts. That bug bit me." A lady sitting on the bench said that there were a lot of bees and wasps in that area. So, once again, I scoop up my crying child, and run to the car. I wanted to get her home to see what damage that stupid wasp did to my baby. Well, she got stung, and she got stung good! I felt so bad for her. On the way home, she kept saying, "I should have run from him. That mean ol' wasp. He was a mean one." LOL
After lots of love from Mommy, Daddy, Mae Mae, and Papa, she seemed to be better. I took her to the store afterwards to get supplies to make cupcakes. We are now the proud owners of 12 funfetti cupcakes with strawberry icing. Yum!!! Cupcakes always make you feel better . . . didn't you know?! LOL
Sooooo, that long rendition of our day is why I'm just now posting the Red Carpet Pictures and if I don't shut up now, they won't be posted until tomorrow. So, here they are. Notice the drama as she gets older – she is perfecting it down to a science. I'm scared. Really scared. LOL
My funny girl. When I say she's a drama queen, I mean it . . . . in the most sincere and flattering way!
See ya' later!!
