I've thought before that maybe it would be fun to do a post some day about the cat. I thought I'd do a little post about all of the cute things she does. For instance, how she's the best kitty blogger and often keeps us company at the computer.
Today's post isn't necessarily about how cute she is. I just need to share my frustration about her weird habits. Maybe you have a weird animal too and you can sympathize with me. :)
Alan and I have often joked about what a strange little kitty she is. Sometimes we think she's part dog. Dog characteristics: Enjoys licking us. Searches for food under the table. She sometimes uses her paws to rake tidbits from underneath Jadyn's booster seat and onto the floor for eating.
She's more like a goat than anything. She eats or chews up all kinds of things. Sometimes I find it funny, sometimes I find it plain annoying.
She does these things in a heartbeat, sometimes before you realize it. Here are just a few of the things she's eaten:
*1 strand of ribbon from a toy wand
*3/4 of the string from a mini yo yo
*small wad of paper (I watched as she quickly ran over and gobbled it up!)
Things she's chewed up:
*aloe vera plant (Does this often and probably is aware of the medicinal properties.)
*plastic string from a necklace
*Jadyn's flower seedlings on the kitchen windowsill
*plastic clinging to the bottom of new refrigerator (insanely fascinated with it daily)
Has tried to eat, and we had to act FAST:
*Polly Pocket skirt
*tiny pine cone from game
*tiny tea cup
*plastic label on box
These are only the things that we KNOW about. Scary to think about what she may have eaten when no one was around!
I'll add a few photos of her cute self. How could something so cute do so many crazy things?
Notice me, please!
Keeping Bryan company while he plays games.
Maybe I should check to see if this bear still has a ribbon!

This happened last month too. Hopefully other family members won't catch it.
Actually I am glad it's only a cold. It could be worse.

This is Jadyn when she was about 16 months old. She'd been with us just about 2.5 months. She was playing with her sisters and bubbles. Two bubbles ended up in front of her eyes and it looks almost like she's wearing glasses.

Pour some hot water in.
Now stir it up! Don't forget to taste the dough, but don't be surprised if your mom makes you wash your hands after you lick your fingers.

What's a parade without clowns?

The funny thing was what she said when we were on our way out of the store. She said, "Where's her bed?" I asked who she was talking about. She gestured toward the sales clerk. I asked what she meant. She said, "Where's her bed? Where does she sleep?"
Apparently she thinks the woman lives there at the store. How funny! I told her that the salesclerk has a house and she goes there to sleep after work. You never know what is going through the mind of a 3 year old. :)

It was time to see what photos were on my phone. Here are the ones I felt compelled to share....
I texted (Is that a word?) these 2 photos to Kaitlyn. She said, "Well why don't you just let her call me?" So we did that.
Even though Kaitlyn was away at school last year, Jadyn still seems to be a little confused about why Kaitlyn's not back from school yet this time. She keeps asking me when Kaitlyn will be back, or why she has to go to school. One evening last week, she asked if Kaitlyn could come for supper.
She's already drawn numerous pictures that we need to mail to Kaitlyn. I hope Kaitlyn is ready for art for her dorm room. :)
Here are 3 photos from our Texas trip...
This is Bryan, playing with Jadyn when we were at my parents' house. She is yelling in protest. I probably would too!
Here is one of Jadyn's funny faces. This was at lunch when we were in Oklahoma. I lifted this one from Kaitlyn. I hope she won't mind. :)
