When I told Kaylee she wasn’t old enough to stay home by herself, she said, “I’m double digits too, you know!
Grace spent a whole day writing out tickets for people in our family. Mine said “Ticket for being too nice. 2 more nice tickets and you are going to nice jail.” Brian got one for being too strong. Joshua for being too mean. Kaylee’s was for liking cats too much.
One day in the car, Joshua began to day dream out loud.
“If I could have any super power, it would be to shift molecules. Then, if I was running late, I’d make the door disintegrate so I could move faster. Once I was outside, I’d put them back together.” Ironically, he doesn’t even have a bedroom door right now. He was slamming it, so Brian took the door off. Maybe he’s talking about the front door, which is a little hard to open.
“I don’t want half way puberty!” wailed Kaylee. She’s starting to develop a little…um….lopsided. But the doctor is not worried; we checked!
Kaylee’s costume was “Crazy Cat Lady.” She pinned stuffed animal cats all over her bathrobe and I put her hair up in curlers. Every house on Halloween night made a huge fuss over her, and not as much over “Minnie Mouse”. “Everyone is making such excitement over her, as if she was Justin Beiber or something.” Grace complained.
“I can remember the bus numbers-it’s easy!” Grace was boasting one day.
“That’s because you have a young adolescent mind.” Joshua replied, making me giggle.
