Santa Claus and Darth Vader

I don't know if you remember but there was a boy at preschool that I wasn't really loving Kai playing with all the time. They just really encouraged naughty behaviour from each other. Well, last week the other boy punched Kai in the eye (Kai was playing with something he wanted). Kai responded by staying calm and telling the teacher. I can't imagine him ever hitting someone back. Even when he gets mad at Koen, or if Koen hits him, Kai just gives a `squishy hug'. The teachers dealt with it and Kai is now keeping some distance from his friend.
Kai is really looking forward to having a baby brother or sister one day (hopefully!). We were talking about how he was born and why men can't have babies which led to having a fun conversation about my uterus:) I love that my 4 year old knows about the uterus. Later on he was wondering what we can do to get his baby brother or sister and I said we just have to pray about it. He then said, `I think we should ask Santa Claus too!'.

{He melts me!!!}
On Sunday I went to get Koen in the morning but he wasn't in his room. I assumed Gary got him already so I proceeded to get his clothes ready for the day. Suddenly, his closet door opened and Koen announced `Hi Dere (there)!' Freaked. Me. Out. What a monkey. He is obsessed with a Darth Vader kids halloween costume in his closet and had been in there for a while checking it out. He is such a monkey and based on his wild antics during `nap time' (aka run around your room time), we probably should've kept him in his crib until he was 5 or so:)

Have a great day.


  1. Wow Kai - VERY impressive!
    Koen - oh, that would have freaked me out too!! what a monkey :)

  2. Kai sure handled that conflict well. Good for him - you must be proud!

  3. Koen`s cute antics confirm that we will keep Adam in his crib until at least 5!

  4. LMAO, awesome! This morning I found Riley out on the front lawn--he pulled a stool over to the front door, put on his boots, unlocked the deadbolt, opened the door, and out he went. I was in the bathroom. Stinkers!

  5. hahaha! I laughed out loud at Koen! Good for Kai! Most adults couldn't stay calm in that sort of situation.
