it is getting harder and harder to trick kai with some of our stories or explanations for things.  sometimes he calls us out on things that we are making a double standard on, like eating on the carpet or not sitting properly at the table.  and he always seems to catch us when we are trying to sneak chocolate.  he loooves chocolate.

the other day there was an ant on the table while he was eating lunch with tutu (hawaiian for “grandma”).

kai: “tutu, there’s an ant!”

tutu: “oops!  not anymore, the ant went to heaven.”

kai: “no he didn’t.  the ant is on your finger!”


kai has recently been telling everyone that he wants a brother.  apparently he has already told that to his nursery leader at church and to rick’s  parents.  now i think i am beginning to understand why.   whenever i ask him who did something that was not good (like lose/break a toy, spill the milk or push kalena), he responds with “it was my brother, caden”.  caden happens to be one of kai’s best friends, whom he is convinced is his brother.  of course, it was impossible for caden to do all that when he is not even here.

today was another example of his brother blaming.  i asked him if he drank all his milk from lunch (while I was changing kalena’s diaper).  he says “yes!”  i ask him to get his cup and show me he has drunk it all.  he runs over as i am coming out to check, and shows me an empty cup.  it looked too empty to be true so i checked the sink and sure enough there was evidence of spilled milk in the sink.

me: “kai, did you really drink all the milk?  please tell me the truth. it looks like milk was poured in here.”

kai: “yes, caden did it.”


"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking, and don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it."
