Conversations with K

Today’s almost never ending conversation with the little madam…. 

K: where are we going?

Me: to buy Lexie a present

K: why are we buying Lexie a present?

Me: because it is Lexie’s birthday tomorrow

K: why is it Lexie’s birthday tomorrow?

Me: because it is the day she was born 

K: why was she born tomorrow 

Me: no she was born on the day but 2 years ago

K: why was she born 2 years ago?

Me: her mommy was pregnant and gave birth to her 

K: why was her mommy pregnant?

Me: her mommy and daddy wanted a baby

K: why did her mommy want a baby?

Me: they wanted a family 

K: why did they want a family

Me: because family is nice

K: why is family nice?

Me: family loves you 

K: but why did her mommy want a baby

Me: silence๐Ÿค๐Ÿค

K: why mommy?

Me: because they wanted a child like you

K: why?

Me: then you can have friends

K: ok I like friends

Me: that’s good (I should have kept quiet)

K: are you my family?

Me: yes baby, daddy and I 

K: why are you my family?

Me: we gave birth to you 

K: why did you give birth to me 

Me: we wanted a baby 

K: why did you want a baby?

Me: because we wanted to have Kanyinsola

K: why? 

Me: because you are the best

K: yes, and you are the best (repeat one million times) ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ And then I was saved by a mama pushing her baby in a pram.. Until 5 mins later and we started all over again. I was saved by reaching our destination. But 3 hours later the questioning started again ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ 

testing out a bed we were checking out for a friend


K: why are you my family?

Me: Please ask Daddy 

K: daddy is at office

Me: Yes

K: why don’t you know

Me: I know but I’m tired 

Poor daddy, I better warn him what’s in store for him when he gets back from work . And she is not yet 3…
Grandpa’s response when I told him “I think this is good for you because you did more than that. That is pay back. Extend my best wishes to her.”
And timehop reminded me she wore the same outfit a year ago 

Father’s Day 2016…

Not so late this time around 

photobombed by the dog’s tail

K now understands the day a bit though she kept saying it is daddy’s birthday. And let me just add here that if you want to keep something a secret don’t tell a 2 year old. We addressed a card for daddy and put it in the bag with the gifts, immediately daddy came home K was quick to tell him this was his birthday gift :lol:

 :lol: but luckily daddy  has patience and he waited till Sunday to get his gift 

So what did we do…We picked sticks:

the stick was one of three that made it into daddy’s gift pack

the “i know you asked me not to taste the dough but couldn’t resist” look

ate dough (cough cough baked)

We addressed cards:

card making in progress

what a big difference a year makes.

Father and Child

No day off for daddy just because it is Father’s day๐Ÿ™‚

our attempt at making a cake just for daddy… the anticipation to dig right in

hugs for daddy

“toto ” sauce is yum

K for Kanyinsola; K for Kangaroo

picking out random numbers and letters

Kisses for daddy because we give him grey hairs ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ and most importantly because he is ours

And it’s a wrap 

Easter 2016…

Playing Catch up…

I always look forward to long weekends (and who doesn’t) but Easter weekend is absolutely one of my favourites because you are guaranteed a Friday and Monday off (in many countries, sadly not all) 

We (by which I mean I) had grand plans for the weekend but life happened and our plans didn’t end up as planned but we made the most of it. 

 

K was down with flu and we had to bring out the “lebulizer”

 
   

So here is our long Easter weekend in pictures…
 
Good Friday 

showing off her”lisptick” Miss Pouty

very expressive child…

 

   

Saturday…

Excitement at seeing a biiiiiig truck up close… My child loves automobiles – cars, trucks, buses, trains and bikes  

when daddy thinks your pyjamas is your regular day outfit๐Ÿ˜†

 

 

fashionista — needed the pink socks

  

Sunday 

Easter was a good day to pack up the Christmas decor๐Ÿ˜† and in case you are wondering my tree is still out (maybe we would do a Christmas in July party  :lol:  :lol: ) whenever we feel like the little missy and I put on the Christmas light because it sparks joy๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰  and because we can 

packing up some of the christmas decor on Easter

I’m not a rabbit mommy….

just having fun

her expressions crack me up

 
Monday was a mommy and daughter’s day out 

too many choices

giant rabbit chocolate

i want a picture with the fountain but i’m not getting wet mommy

pressing buttons is a lot of fun when you are 2


 
And that’s a wrap 
Hope you had a good Easter ? (seems so long ago now)

A Fancy Ride…

because sometimes your alarm clock looks like a camera … has nothing to do with the post

I finally took the plunge and used UB.ER and can I just say I love it and would use it again and again and again… The best part you don’t have to have cash on hand, and you can order a pick up of your friends or family members even if you are far away, plus you get indication of when the car would arrive(and you can track the car throughout the journey)

and an idea of the fare which is good, no nasty surprises (unless….). The not so good part (until recently) you had to have a credit card. 

And the  attacks (my colleagues have been attacked twice) 

A few week ago I rushed out of work as I needed to get home and pick up K for swimming lessons… as my luck would have it there was a delay on the train on this fateful day and for some bizarre reason there was traffic gridlock everywhere around me. The time I left the office  if there wasn’t an issue I should have been home by 5 which gives me enough time to get to the swimming lessons. Let’s just say I was still on the train at 5 and it took more than 20 mins to get out of the train station… During this time I had a brain wave (smart me) to call uber to take the nanny and K to the lesson while I met them there and it all worked out: they got there in good time and the instructor was happy I didn’t bring her since it was going to be her first class going into the solo.. All’s well that ends well

Anyway, back to the fancy UB.ER ride, my last UB.ER ride, as always  I checked so I had an indication of the fare price. The car came and I was wondering why it was a fancy black Audi… 

wasn’t this fancy ….

Hmmmmm moving up I thought until I got the receipt.. Double what I was expecting… And if you know me I was gearing up for a war for my refund so I was scrutinizing the bill , I knew the route so it wasn’t a case of the driver taking a longer route (though he drove very very slowly by my standards) ALAS it turned out I asked for UB.ER black, the black fancy Audi made sense and the hefty bill. I was distracted when ordering the ride and if I had double checked I could have cancelled before it came but obviously I didn’t realize until I saw the receipt. And apparently you get bottled water when you use black (who knew), I wouldn’t find out because as long as I book, I shall not be booking BLACK๐Ÿ˜†

At least now I can say I have used black, but I shall be sticking to X

this actualy made me smile๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚ wish it was always that easy

Father’s Day 2015…

Posting only one year later :lol: 

 

hey mom, it’s father’s day!!!!

Q&A 2 year old style…

Cleo the Rottweiler getting a hug because K decided she was sad๐Ÿ™‚. The dog whisperer

Saw this floating around and decided to have some fun last night : Without any prompting, ask your child these questions

What is your favourite food? Pizza, cupcake, oats, Otees ( I’ve never eaten this before but she gets it in Sunday school).

Definitely not my child as I can’t stomach oats but she loves it and is happy to have it for breakfast everyday if you allow 
Who is your best friend? Friend (well)

What makes you happy? I’m happy (said with hands raised in the air to affirm the proclamation 
 

Where is your favorite place to go? Swimming and Church (that’s my child) and I’m sure if I allowed her she would have added gym

What is daddy’s favorite thing to do? Daddy is not doing

Another friend asked her kid what mom’s favourite thing to do is- child responded drink wine๐Ÿ˜†
