If you read my previous post, you will notice I referenced a poem about cats. Well, I was not foreshadowing in any way, but exactly one month ago yesterday we got two free kittens. They are very well behaved, and are cute little things. Lydia wanted to name one of them "Klinker" in honor of one of her favorite books (I think it is my favorite from when I was her age) entitled "Big Bad Bruce" by Bill Peet. I would highly recommend any of his books as the illustrations are fantastic.
Sorry for the divergence; the second cat was dubbed "Belle" because Lydia loves princesses. So without further ado, a picture:Klinker is the kitten with his eyes open, and Belle is fast asleep. This picture was taken the day we got them, and boy have they grown in the past month.They are such great kittens that they will let Lydia and Benjamin tote them around like babies all the time. Benjamin calls them his "young babies," and when they get out of his arms he will run after them shouting, "Young baby, come back!"I love this picture because of the look on both faces...Lydia's of sheer delight, and Klinker's of pure indifference.
