Kylie's been fighting this little cold thing since Saturday. Sometimes she'll feel hot, one day her neck (throat) was sore, the next day her right ear was hurting. She seemed to be fine Monday morning, so she went to preschool. Yesterday, she woke up feeling crappy, but we had a playdate at the park, and she got pretty upset at the idea of missing that. Gave her some Tylenol, and she was good to go for a while. She got tired pretty quickly though, and you could tell she wasn't feeling like herself, because the Taz factor was cranked down a few notches.
Today, she woke up feeling icky again, and she felt warm to me. So we stayed home from preschool. Went with the Tylenol of course, and 30 minutes later she's feeling pretty good. She's on my bed watching Diego, so I decided this would be a good time to grab a shower. I came out of the shower to this:
Yep, she's in my bed, playing Toontown on my fat laptop. There's no shortcut on the desktop to this site on my laptop, so she obviously just typed it in. I don't even know the site address, but she knows the site, her user name and her password, (no doubt set up by an evil teenage sister) and can enter them accordingly. She's five. Ok, I know all your kids are just as computer savvy, but it still kind of fascinates me.
I grabbed my phone to take a picture, and I wondered if that's what I look like in my bed with my laptop. Well, if I was about 1/8 my current size, had really light blond hair and blue eyes, and perfect skin, that's what I would ... yeah, not at all.
You know what's great about Kylie? She doesn't care if my laptop is fat. She loves my laptop just the way it is. And it obviously loves her back, evidenced by the fact that it hasn't gone all wonky on me because a five year-old is playing with it.
Anyway, I'm sure in a day or so she'll be back to her usual full-speed-ahead self. Her dad has bestowed the nickname of Taz upon her, for reasons that are probably pretty clear to most people.
Remember when these were on Saturday morning? Dedicated to my little Taz.
