Child Celebrates Arrival of Easter
Chocolate bunny’s hours are numbered
As we close out the anniversary weekend here at The Daily Kina, I’m going to file a shorty. We spent all day outside with the chimera of superheroes we call a daughter, gathering and re-hiding eggs so that she could experience a long rollercoaster of joy and surprise. People were charmed, Kina was pleased, jellybeans were eaten; it was a great day, and we are all now quite tired.
Yesterday was also a great day, because Kina scored a free cape and mask at a random kid’s birthday party and spent the whole day pretending she was Owlette from PJ Masks (another show I would never have chosen to watch, absent our small child, but now know quite well). She used that impressive costume to marshal a little army of small followers, waving a stick around to rally them to her cause; we ultimately had to convince her drop the stick, to prevent her from poking out the eyes of the various infants and toddlers in her entourage. Owlette was irritated, but we believe she understood the potential PR catastrophe.
The week ahead is exciting for her. Kina’s grandparents are coming, she has a one-on-one with her teachers, and there’s a musical theater class in the local park. The fun never sets on the empire of Kina. All hail.
What a great Parade! Laurea and Kina worked together on this collection of feline Fabergé eggs. My favorite is Kina’s, at the top right, because she’s really leaning into the ol’ triangle-body approach to figure drawing.
I’ll leave you with the two pictures below, of the first true Sunday Kina (the first Daily Kina to fall on a Sunday was a normal four-story edition, and we introduced the broadsheet in response to public demand). Note the little chocolate bunny, who is reproduced in higher fidelity and as a masthead portrait this year.
