Making Friends
Yesterday morning was absolutely beautiful. The sky was blue, and the sun was warm. Last week, our play group had decided to it was time to switch to a park instead of McDonalds on nice days. Shortly after we got there, one of the mom's adult sons stopped by. He was cleaning out an old house and found two kittens: one alive. He brought the kitten out to his mom. She checked to make sure she (it's a girl) didn't have fleas and was cuddling away. The kitten was obviously hungry. I still had a few packets of formula in my diaperbag that we had taken to China. We mixed up some formula with water and the kitten dived in. She didn't know how to lap yet, but she'd dunk her face and lick it off her whiskers.

Sera was fascinated. She kept reaching out for the kitten. I picked up the kitten and held it for a bit while Sera stared. At one point, I was walking around with her when she led us to the mom's chair where the kitten sat. She reached over and started petting the kitten. Jim would love to have a cat again, but right now we think it would be too much for Shadow. He's still adjusting to one small being in the house that's getting all the attention. He's been great, but no sense in pushing it. Some day.

Last night, my voice started cracking. About 10 pm, I started sneezing and feeling a little sniffly. This morning, I woke up with a sore throat and just a general feeling of yuckiness. I can't be sick. We've got big plans for the weekend. I've already had three doses of Airborne since last night. It's time for the fourth.

Kitten allergy? Something in the air at the park? Just wondering.


Tonight we decided to take a peek at all the blogs and see how everyone is doing. Glad to see that Sera is adjusting well and is such a happy little girl! Sera is such a CUTIE!! Glad you had a wonderful Mother's Day.

It's nice to hear she played well with the kitten, when i was little i'd have terrorized it :\

Feel better! My first thought (as a cat allergy person) was kitty allergies too. I hope you're doing better. What a cute picture!

Magi had her cat Sam for 19 years. He was oooooold! She would have known if she was allergic.

Know what's cool? It's cool to see how fast "normal" has descended upon your house. You're all adjusting so well and enjoying the little things that string the days together - it's just lovely to watch. Whether or not you feel like it, you look like a very comfortable, relaxed Mom.
