We have a ponytail! Her dream has become a reality. She has wanted to be “just like big sister” with braids, ponytails and buns from the time she met Big Girl. (Now her dream has grown to be an Asian-American version of Rapunzel, but for now we will rejoice in step one – the ponytail!) Yes, there are still a few fly aways, due to a minor “mom is distracted and we are having fun with scissors moment” – but the pony tail holder hung in there all the same.
The minor hair cut incident really is a post in its own right. I won’t go into it – but it has to do with me cooking Christmas dinner, Big girl trying out her new spin art (which is true to the box’s advertisment – “spin, splash paint fun!”) I got distracted by the paint flying around my kitchen while trying to put the turkey in the oven. Next thing I know there is a chunk of black hair on the floor. Little monkey wanted to see if the scissors would cut “other stuff” and not just paper. Lessons learned: Mom – You should not allow messy art projects, while cooking, something bad is bound to happen. Little Monkey – “scissors do cut hair. If you cut it it takes longer for it to grow out.”
That put us back a few months, but we are all wiser and we are now back on track with growing out that hair. (I really am a crazy mom who never learns the messy art project lesson. What can I say?)
Could she be cuter with that stub of a ponytail? Just thought I would share!
