So I have this thing about "boyfriends" and "girlfriends" when it comes to my kids. They have friends that are boys and friends that are girls. They don't have "boyfriends" or "girlfriends" and they aren't anyone's "boyfriend" or "girlfriend." I cringe inside when someone asks them if they have a boyfriend or girlfriend. They're kids. They aren't supposed to. I have other reasons I don't like it that I won't go into, but you can certainly read them yourself in Raising Boys (which I think is a great book by the way).
Last night I was in the shower, and Cason knocked on the door and came in and told me he wanted to tell me something. I could barely hear him because I was in the shower. I couldn't see him because of the shower curtain.
"Mom. I want to tell you something."
"Ok, what is it?"
"Syuisnj* kissed me on the lips."
*I couldn't hear WHO he said kissed him on the lips, only that it happened. So I'm kind of freaking out wondering what I'm going to say about this. I decide not to make a big deal of it but I want to know who it was.
"Who kissed you on the lips?"
"Sjdhwjsj. She kissed me right on my mouth."
I still can't hear who it was.
"Well, that's not a good idea. We shouldn't let people kiss us on the lips that aren't in our family."
"She's NOT a person! She's a dog! I said SUNNY kissed me on the lips. I was laying on the floor and she came up and licked my mouth!"
Sunny is our dog.

Oh hey, what's up? Sorry about the neglect! Kendall and I have just been hanging out together shopping, lunching, napping and just having a grand time in general. But don't tell Cason. He thinks he's getting the better end of the deal by getting to go to kindergarten. Heh.
Today Kendall (finally...FINALLY) started back to pre-school.
This face right here is trouble.
I'm not sure what Cason is doing here. That's his new pose. Like the Missoni Line at Target, I don't get it. ( What is UP with Missoni?! I'm sorry but I just don't get it. But I'm old, so maybe that's why) Also, notice Kendall's Hello Kitty tattoo...Colin says not to be surprised if she ends up with a real one someday.
Cason took this picture of Kendall and I. I think he's got good skills for a five year old.
Kendall's new teachers told me that she was great and so sweet but that she wasn't much like her brother. That girl is DEFINITELY her own person. And we love her for it.
