What a Fun Day for Us!

We had a great Saturday today! Today, Dakotah and I went to Tim Horton's and sold raffle tickets for Livee's Loonies. Livee's older sister and two of her brothers joined us, and we have a lot of success and a lot of fun. They are very, very nice kids, and we are hoping that we win the lottery tonight - we all picked numbers when we were hanging out together, and had fun dreaming about how we would spend a million dollars.

Today, Wayne was working a Trade Show for the company he works for, and later in the day, the girls and I went to visit him. There were all kinds of businesses there, and I was so happy to see Paige so interested in everything. She looked at things, smiled at people, and tried to get into the koi pond that was there - it was a portable pool that would have had plenty of room for both her and those fish!!

There was also a little display of animals - baby chicks, baby ducks, kittens, etc. Paige and I were looking at the kittens, and I was trying to get her to hold the little tricolored kitty, but she had her eyes on the little orange tabby kitten that another little boy was holding. She was mesmerized.

She was so enthralled with him, that I was *this close* to going and finding Daddy and asking him if we could bring the tiny guy home with us. She was looking and looking, and as the little boy moved around with the kitten to show his friends, Paige followed them.

The kitten was only $20 - what's another pet, right? But, Wayne is NOT a cat person, and I knew it would take some fancy persuasion to talk him into it.

Anyway, the little boy tired of the kitty, and handed him back to his owner. Thinking I would let Paige cuddle him, and take him to Daddy herself (hey, her big blue eyes work better magic than mine do!) - I took the kitten and handed it to her.

She wanted no part of it!!!

What she wanted a part of was that little boy who was holding the kitty - he had been to the face painting booth and had his very own face painted like a cat. THAT'S the kitty Paige wanted!!!
She followed him around and just kept touching him on the shoulder and tilting her head so she could see his face.

It was very sweet, although the little boy was probably like, "Mooooooommmmmmmmm...that little girl is stalking me!"

hehe...

Awwww - how sweet is that :) Did you take her to get her face painted??? I'd love to see pics of that ;)

And - bonus - you didn't end up with another pet :) Although, the kitty sounds like he was pretty dang cute :)

Also, I have been thinking about you.....I just posted a link to an incredible article in People magazine by a father who talks about his son with Autism. I couldn't find a direct link to the magazine, but I have an extra copy here if you want me to send it to you. Katrina picked up the same issue, because there was also a story in it about SCRUBs star who has a son with T21.

Love you lots and lots....

So, do you think you could have purchased the 'human' kitty for $20 bucks!????? lol!!!!
