Let the games begin!
Join us in the ring today for another morning of action packed adventure. In this corner, wearing purple trunks and her snazzy new karate girl shirt is Kaiya. Weighing in at 24 pounds and standing at just over two feet this little fighter specializes in the stiff upper cut followed by a push-off technique. If she is really pissed she might flail on the ground like a fish out of water. In the other corner is her entire Sunday School class. Never fear though, our little Kaiya is a chip of her mom’s old block and can hold her own for sure. The games begin when the last parent drops off their kid and don’t end until the preacher finally shuts up. On extra holy days you may come to pick up your little one and find the frazzled teachers underneath a pile of toddlers who are trying to bite, hit, scratch and kick their way to independence. This teacher in particular is at least glad there is one child she can scream at, since it’s her own, and oh does she scream. And put her in time out. The others look on with wide eyes as my child has just punched one kid, taken another kid’s toy, has a snatch of hair from the daintiest kid (of course) clutched in her little hand and still glaring at me defiantly. So, ding ding ding, let the games begin!
