Kaelyn has really matured in the last few weeks. It just seemed that she suddenly woke up one morning and became an entire year older....I'm not sure how it happened. She is forever making me laugh.
On the way to church this morning Kaelyn was sitting next to me in the van. Zeke was in the back drawing pictures with markers on some paper that he had brought with him. As he was drawing, he was asking for ideas of what to draw next. I gave him a few ideas: dogs, rainbows, etc. Then I asked him to draw me a picture of our house and our family. Kaelyn made a side comment to herself that I just barely heard, "oh yes, family...I love family." :)
Last week I ordered a formal gown online to wear for the awards ceremony for my Mary Kay seminar. When the gown arrived on our doorstep I took it out of the box and tried it on to see if it fit correctly. The back of the gown had a corset-type tie so, in an attempt to put the dress on myself, I turned it around backwards so that I could lace the corset part up and then turn it around the correct way once it was laced. Once I had laced the back halfway, there was 6-8 inches of my mid-section still showing through the corset. Kaelyn was watching this entire process carefully. She then spoke up to say, "Mommy, that is a really pretty dress...I R-E-A-L-L-Y like your dress." Then she paused, cocked her head to the side, and with a concerned tone she went on to say, "and by the way...your privacy is showing."
