Meimei sleepyhead

Meimei stopped taking naps, even though she’s only 3!! I think she needs a nap though, because she gets super grumpy and angry and sleep sometimes. Lately she keeps falling asleep right before dinner!

-Kayli

Meimei got so mad at what we were eating for dinner that she went into her room crying and then fell asleep!

Meimei got mad again. She was so mad. She gets so mad all the time now. Sometimes she gets a time out and sometimes she goes to her room to cry, and then she falls asleep!

This time, Meimei actually wanted to sleep! She got so bored with trying to learn something over video chat that she went to her room and took a nap.

Tone deaf singing

We love to sing. We sing songs from Frozen, Princess Sofia, Doc McStuffins, Umizoomi… basically everything that we watch on TV. And songs from school. Meimei even makes up her own songs! Daddy says we might be tone deaf!

-Kayli and Leia

We sang Into the Unknown a hundred times a day for a week.

Meimei made up a song about wanting candy but not getting any!

Best buddies

Because of Coronavirus, we hang together soooo much and we have gotten so good at playing together! In the morning, we wake each other up before Mommy and Daddy are awake. Sometimes we play with each other. Sometimes we wake Mommy and Daddy up, and then play with each other. Then for the next 12 hours, we play with each other! Sometimes a grown up helps give us food or stops us from killing each other or makes us clean up our mess or tries to teach us something, but usually we just play and watch TV!

-Kayli and Leia

We eat snacks and gossip about Frozen, Sofia, and Doc McStuffins.

Shelter-at-home food

We have been eating well during this coronavirus thing. Daddy has been cooking more… but mostly stuff Mommy and Daddy like. We like to eat in the car and on picnics though!

Into the UNKNOWN!!!

We watched Frozen 2 like 10 times because we get to watch so much TV when there’s no school, and and we are EXPERTS at singing Into the Unknown.  Like, we know all the words and have perfect pitch and know the dance routine!

-Kayli and Leia

Meimei mainly knows the “Into the Unknown” part… but she knows it really well!

Here’s the whole song! We even know when to use fortissimo and pianissimo! So much natural musical talent!

Fun during shelter-at-home

Coronavirus sucks, but shelter-at-home can be fun. Daddy builds cool things when he doesn’t have to work, and Mommy and Daddy both take us out to ride our bikes and scooters way more. We want Coronavirus to go away so we can play with other people again, but we don’t want to go back to school!

-Kayli and Leia

Daddy built a swing set for us! The swings are still crooked though...

Shelter-at-home weeks 5-8

Daddy hasn’t been working the last few weeks, but he hasn’t been playing with us that much either. He has been busy building us a swing set and monkey bars! And we have been busy pretending to be babies. No school is the best!

-Kayli and Leia

We went with Daddy on his last day of work to drop off a bunch of stuff, and then walked around some cool trails nearby.

More fun at home!

We haven’t had school in a month and have been driving Mommy and Daddy crazy! We don’t like Zoom classes so we stopped going to those. Mommy and Daddy are bad teachers so we aren’t learning anything. I am still bad at numbers and I can’t read! I just play and watch Frozen 2. I want to be Elsa. I love Elsa so much.

Sometimes we get to eat snacks outside. Daddy likes it because we don't make a big mess in the house!

Meimei’s 3rd birthday!

I turned 3! I was gonna have a huge birthday party at the park. Daddy was gonna make brisket, ribs, beans, salad, hot dogs, boba, and more stuff! Then we had to cancel it because of coronavirus! That’s ok. I didn’t want any of that stuff. Daddy is sad though because he wanted to make all that stuff. I just wanted cake and I got a cake!

I looove unicorns, purple, and rainbows. Jan gave me a rainbow unicorn cat, and I already had a purple unicorn from Nainai!
