Aqua the Mermaid

“There’s so many kids! So many kids came…I want to wear a mermaid tail so I don’t have to wear a swimsuit.”

The Rare Katyalope at the Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary

June 9th, 2010

This girl LOVES nature centers. A month or so ago we were going to Tucker Wildlife in Modjeska Canyon a few times a week. Katya went once, liked it, saw a Little Einsteins about woodpeckers, and then was super excited to look for them there. They have Acorn Woodpeckers which fill the telephone poles with acorns. On the cool old birdwatching porch that my parents used to take me to we also see Scrub Jays, squirrells, hummingbirds, Titmouses (titmice?!), House Sparrows, and some other stuff too. The pond has turtles, koi, and orange dragonflies. Once we were there in the middle of field trip time and got to pet a tame opposum with some second graders. Katya loves to buy “baby chips” in the store corner and read books and poke at owl pellerts. I could go on and on. It’s not a huge place, but it’s wonderful. Another important thing to know/remember is that one of the ladies who works there has a big unicorn tattoo. 

A lovely morning

A really wonderful day at the beach Friday left me with hilariously burnt calves, so I didn’t want to take Katya to the pool this afternoon. We decided to make our own ocean instead.

Even more awesome, after a while Katya annouced, “I’m doing a project!”

“I’m a fairy with no pants!”

I remember when I was pregnant, a customer at Borders told me you can dress a little girl however you want for the first few years. Then once she’s three, she either goes ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLL girly on you or not.

Like someone flipped a sparkly light switch, within a day or two of her birthday, my child, who has always hated things stuck on her head, started asking for hair clips, “because fairies wear hair clips.” Alternately, “because princesses wear hair clips.” And how? At least one on the side, and always one of the top of her head.
