When Jack's Away, the Kat Will Play...

Monday, August 10, 2009

Jack has been gone to "Camp Grandma" for almost a week now, and boy do we miss him. But it's been fun this week to really spend some time just with the Katbird. She is so full of personality. That busy little bee keeps me on my toes like you wouldn't believe but it's so much fun trying to keep up. I can't tell you how nice it's been just having a little Kate time.

There's been trips to the grocery store in full princess regalia, walks in the rain, stacks of books read, more popsicles than you can count, crying fits, laughing fits, playdates with girlfriends, clunking around in mom's high heels and prom dresses, and fun time at our homemade "waterpark" just to name a few activities. 

There's a line from the book Olivia, which, since having Kate, I've related to... the mom says, "Olivia, you really wear me out. But I love you anyway." I think of that on those days when I'm just exhausted from running ragged after all that 2 year old energy. But I think if I were to say it to Kate I would say it more like this:

"Kate, you really wear me out. And I love you because of it."
