Lauryn has randomly been calling me "Ma" this afternoon. And since she's wearing pigtails today, I keep having thoughts of Laura from Little House on the Prairie....
I don't much like this "Ma" business. But if she keeps it up I'll train her to call her Daddy "Pa" so we can keep it equal.
Lauryn has been wearing pigtails a little more often now that I have let go of my obsession that the part in her hair has to be PERFECTLY STRAIGHT. Pigtail construction used to be a misadventure that left both mother and daughter in tears. After much struggle, I'd get them in, then see that the part in the back veered slightly to the left and we'd have to start all over again. It was ridiculous really. But as you can see from the wavy line down the middle of her head, and the strands of hair falling around her face, I've let go of the need for pigtail perfection. We're all much happier.
I had to let that obsession go too. Now Bailey does not like anything in her hair. She always pulls it out. This is something new that I have to get over. I think I am just going to have to get her hair cut so she can wear it down. Oh the joys of little girls:)
Your daughter is quite cute. I LOVE pigtails!
I attempted the pigtail thing today as well. And discovered the back half hanging out on the way out the door. Oh well.
Pigtail perfectionism is evil! Claire is so happy if I can do it by the 3rd try!!! :-)
I won't lie. I cringed a little when I read this:
'let go of my obsession' that the part in her hair has to be PERFECTLY STRAIGHT.
(sighs) I still can't let it go.
....prolly why L'il C HATES me putting her hair in a ponytail.
