• “Mommy, I’m brave of thunder now.” She is definitely not as sensitive to the thundering. She also likes to ask whether you’re scared of the thunder. (The correct answer is, “No, of course not!”)


  • “I don’t cry at preschool anymore. And I’m not shy of people.” This is sometimes – dare I say mostly – true.


  • On the first day of school: “And I saw my friends x, y, and z! They all came back! Just like two months ago! It was like a big party!” I’m not sure how long the excitement will last, but today was a good day.


  • I hadn’t pushed the issue of a new school year with the employees, as K.Lo seemed puzzled over a “new” situation, when she was already established in the 4-year-old room through summer camp. Didn’t want to stress out the employee needlessly. But with new backpacks (K.Lo’s wish) and some old faces returned, I think she “got” it. And was much more pleased than expected!


  • “Mommy, you like my new dress?” “I love your new dress. You look like you could be on Fashion Show [which is what we call ProjectRunway].” “Whaaat? Fashion Show! Mommy, Fashion Show doesn’t exist on the earth.” Since it was on TV, K.Lo assumed “pretend.” Which is not necessarily a bad thing. However, I explained that ProjectRunway does indeed exist on this earth. She said, “Where?” And I told her, “In New York City, where your cousin lives.” She said, “Oh!”


  • Also, I love when she says, “Whaaat?” like you are saying the craziest thing ever.


  • A recent outdoor art project, completely devised by K.Lo, was “painting” the deck with a bucket of water and a broom, like it’s a giant canvas. Love it. Made me think of our trip to the zoo, with the giant chalkboard wall.

    I love the gigantic backpacks on little kids. It's so cute. It's shows their grown-up-ness and their still-little-ness all in one adorable picture. :)

    I love K.Lo's sprightly pig tails. It's like the embodiment of the "I think I can" spirit.
