Sassy, Spunky, Spirited, You Name It

September 25, 2010

She’s all that and a bag of chips.  Whew, this girl keeps me totally hopping.  Holden wears me out physically and she wears me out mentally.  Actually, they BOTH wear me out physically and mentally, but each one is a little stronger in opposing categories. ;)

Kasen started a new school today, which she loved.  I did too.  It helped that the first thing she saw was an indoor slide.  She excitedly exclaimed, “Mom, there’s a slide IN-SIIIIDE!!  Isn’t that cooooool???”  Add that to the fact that there were also birds and a fish tank and she was ready to set up house and allow us to come visit her on holidays. ;)  She’ll go there one day a week, and she still goes to her Mother’s Day Out program two days a week at a different location.  When I picked her up today, I was asking her about all the fun stuff she did, asking her if she made any new friends, talking about her cool art project, but what she was most thrilled about was the Tootsie Roll that her teacher had just given her.  Forget learning and social interaction, TOOTSIE ROLL trumps all.  Didn’t you know?! LOL

We also had a play date with one of Kasen’s very best friends today (pics of that to come later, even though I didn’t get many).  They were so cute together, playing pretend-sleep, making music,and of course, the ultimate in play dates –  playing dress-up.  There was an issue with the coveted princess shoes, but they sorted that out so diplomatically.  Carson gave the shoes to Kasen and Kasen hugged Carson for being so kind (aka Kasen getting her way). ;)  There was a steady stream of princesses, jazz girls and race car drivers making their rounds throughout the house.  Holden tried to join in on the fun but was consistently denied. LOL  Carson’s Mom, Lisa said she felt so bad for him.  Didn’t keep him from trying though every.single.time.  Girls run toward bedroom, Holden following, girls shut door, Holden stands and looks at door, Lisa says “De-Nied.”  This happened over and over and over, but Holden was a trooper and would walk back in the living room and continue to play.  Must be hard being the littlest.

Kasen also started gymnastics this week as well – just trying to expend all of that energy swirling around in that tiny body of hers.  With all these things going on, we take one step forward and two steps back, or make that three or four or five.  LOL  Suffice it to say, this week has had many ups and many downs.  It will be interesting to see what next week brings.  I’d like to say “Bring It On” but I’m old and tired and right now, all I can say is “Please don’t hurt me!” LOL

Like I said in the title . . . . . sassy, spunky, spirited, AND one gorgeous little soul whom I love with all my heart and would do anything for.  Our beautiful sunshine. :)




See ya’ later!!

Lisa: We had such a good time. You forgot to mention how Carson "diplomatically" hung on to the shoes for quite a while before finally letting Kasen have them! :) They were so cute together and I enjoyed visiting witih you! See you soon. Take care of yourself!!
