My Kai-Noah

Today was interesting.  I received a text at work from Rex:  'Sorry if Kai's hair looks a little off, he got a hold of scissors when I wasn't looking'.  OY!  I about fell over in my seat.

Well, this isn't the first time one of my kids has decided to give hairstyling a go, but it is the first time one of my kids gave a haircut to himself.  All I could do was shake my head and ask for a pic so I could see the damage.  (this isn't the pic by the way...) Didn't look so bad-maybe he cut his bangs a little.  He's due for a haircut anyway.

I am slowly learning not to have an instant heart attack when I get texts like that or am washing the dishes and hear a loud THUD come from somewhere else in the house.  I'm blessed to have a healthy, adventurous and active son whose antics drive me and Rex absolutely crazy. But... Kai's random smiles, episodes of dancing and singing, and bouts of giggling and laughter when he's playing with his sisters bring such warmth to my heart.  I secretly love it when he gets possessive and calls me 'my Mommy' while squeezing his way in between me and one of his sisters or even Rex on the couch.  He gets so angry when the other person says 'No, MY mommy!' It's absolutely hilarious. 

He just fell asleep on the lounge chair in the weirdest most seemingly uncomfortable position.  He was running around screaming just seconds ago.  My boy-what a character he is!  And now, I'm logging off just so I can sit there and watch him dream.  G'night all!

My Kids

These are my four lovable (and sometimes not-so-lovable) children:  Mikaela, Kiana, Keilani and Kai-Noah.  (I like the letter K. ?) Their ages range from 13 to 2 1/2. We also have our Angel who watches over all of us from above.  
Having 4 kids is quite the adventure!    I get to re-live every stage of childhood with them.  Right now, I'm re-learning Pre-Algebra, Geometry, History, Science... etc...It's fun.  Really.  There's also never a dull moment. Especially after Kai came along.  That boy is everywhere and constantly keeps us on our toes!  And he's LOUD.  LOUD.  Probably because he just wants to make sure he can be heard over the three talkative (at home, anyway) older sisters.  Sometimes Rex and I just look at one another and shake our heads.  People warned me.  'A boy is different'.  LOL-they were not kidding.  Still, I wouldn't have it any other way-they are the loves and lights of my life.
