I cut it!

I keep waiting for a sunny day and photo-staging inspiration to strike at the same time- I received the most gorgeous, the sweetest, the nicest present in the mail. But neither has come, and I sit here like a bum not telling you guys about how wonderful it is. BUT, I'll make it up to you- until I get my sunny day and my photo-staging inspiration, you can run over here and check out my gift's twin sister. It will make you happy! And hey, if it just hops into your cart, it will make you even happier every time you look at it! (Bobbi's such a lovely artist, you really SHOULD go see what she makes for her shop!) We put ours on the piano, but Mimi was convinced it was a scarf. So now it's up a little higher. Which will work until she grows, but judging from how much the child has been eating the last few days shouldn't take long.

Speaking of growing, check out that little sprite up top! When did my baby, my first-born, become a sparkling pixie girl? She's been begging for a hair cut- (pointing to her bangs) "I want these up here "(pointing higher on her forehead) "and I want these bangs" (touching the rest of her hair) "up here" (touching her shoulders.) She wanted to be just like Kiki.

Her dream is fulfilled. Oh my goodness- I think I chopped off a bit of her soul and threw it away. The part that was serious and quiet. She's been like a rocket all day, posing, flipping her hair, shaking her head back and forth, twinkling those huge blue eyes at us and flashing half-cocked grins. She's light as a bird, and loving it. She can't wait to go to school tomorrow and show her friends. As I tucked her in tonight she said excitedly "Maybe my friends will loooove my new hair, Mom!" Maybe, sweet pea. I think they love YOU more, though.

I admit though- I found extra trash to put in the can (which, in our house, is difficult to do), just so I couldn't see her beautiful hair lying in there.

If you're interested in this sort of thing, I'm in the preliminary stages of planning our kindergarten curriculum for Ernie's first school year at home. You can see it here at my other online nook.

She looks adorable! And yes, I remember the lightness after huge chunks of hair had been lopped off. :)

It's funny how light you feel after a haircut, isn't it?

Ahhh you're so sweet! And I love your sweet stories about your little ones! Your writing conjures up such vivid images of their antics! It makes me remember my own babies so long ago:)

Oh, your little girl is so sweet in her new haircut!!

I remember my mom used to cry over my haircuts when I was little and wanted them short!
