Busy Day

We’re house-sitting, the children (and K) and I. This means that Grace has found out about cats, and that Sam has, remarkably for the first time, found out about cats’ claws.

He ran to me and burst into tears, showing me a scratch on his arm. I hadn’t seen the cat, so at first I didn’t know what had happened. But when I realized there were actually two or three scratches, and they were swelling a little, I had a suspicion–and when he ran away from her the next time she showed up, I knew. He’s all fixed up with Calendula, a band-aid, and lots of kisses. Also a movie.

The other thing Cassie’s house means is more stairs. Today Grace climbed up about half a dozen steps with her aunt spotting. When she got to the top, she crawled to me, and for the first time she crawled upright instead of with her belly on the floor.

Help my baby isn’t a baby anymore.

    Poor Sam.

    When I was two, my cat scratched me down both sides of my face. I still grew up to be a cat person. Just sayin’.

    I was just reading this entry and man, how cool is it that at some point Grace and Sam are going to be able to access these archives and read about themselves, all the steps they took, big moments, little ones!!! I just think that’s so awesome. I can’t believe how fast Grace is growing. It seems like yesterday we were all trying to guess the gender of the baby you were going to have. Aww.

    I know what you mean. I tell my daughter to stop growing up and she does it anyway. ;) I miss my baby girl.

    Lots of learning there. I appreciate that.

    Oh dear! Tell Grace I’ll be very upset with her if she’s walking and talking by the time I get back. I’m sorry about Gadget’s claws – I hope she & Sam reconcile soon.

    Well, Sam hasn’t antagonized Gadget any more, so I think it’s a draw. They’ll probably be the best of pals by the end of the week.
