Week in Review

Written on September 19, 2008 by Rylan & Kaitlyn.

Well the craft show last weekend went pretty well. My dad had to work the show doing whatever the coordinators asked him to do. We went to visit him and that was pretty exciting trying to find him. We didn't sell as many hair bows as we had wanted but it was still a decent show.

My birthday is just under a month away. Mom and I have been preparing lately and trying to decide what theme to go with. I have chosen a Mario party! It's going to be awesome. Mom is going to make a cake safe for Kaitlyn and I think it's going to be Mario themed as well. I can't wait.

Kaitlyn has been doing great with her coloring. I like to do my crafts while she colors. In fact, mom has been making things out of clay lately and while she does that I get to work with Playdoh. I like to try and make things like her. I made a carrot the other day. I think it turned out pretty well.

Kaitlyn and I have been learning how to clean up lately. Mom gave us a bath the other day but before we could do that, we had to clean up our room. We both helped out mom and now the room looks great. I almost forgot what the carpet looked like. Ok, well it wasn't that bad but it definitely is nicer now.

Kaitlyn is turning into such a big girl. She is learning so many new words now and this weekend I hear she will be having her car seat turned around. I'm a bit bummed though because now I can't look at her and pick on her. It will be a bit more difficult now but not impossible. I'll find a way.

I think that's about it. Have a great weekend.


I just wanted to inquire as to why you're turning her seat around? She's such a petite little thing! She could probably stay rear facing until she's at least 2. It's much safer to extended rear face to the limits of your carseat.

Thanks for the comment. Kaitlyn has now met the required 20lb and 1 year so we began looking into the possibility of turning it around. I understand the benefits of keeping a child rear facing however in our car, the front facing locks the seat in much better than with rear facing. As with anything in parenting, it can be a difficult decision however we feel that this is best for our situation.
