It's true, everyone's a winner, but isn't it fun to get something once in a while? Can you tell me which movie Emily is watching? If you can correctly name it, you'll get a prize. Really, I'll send you something fun. Here's a hint - this movie was sold out at Target and I had to rent it. HOW did I not get to Target in time?
The purpose of this post is to show off the latest in hair accessories - pipe cleaners! Emily's request for this morning's hairstyle was "Gretel hair that sticks straight out." For those of you not up-to-speed on your Sound of Music references, Gretel hair means braids and called Gretel hair after Gretel Von Trapp who is 5 years old, quite a lady, and a friend to all - at least to the girls at my house. Pipe cleaners make stick-out Gretel hair possible - and oh so desirable!
Notice that the Gretel Hair is still sticking up and they haven't fallen out completely. Sure, it looks a little crazy but also, It's 6:00! Frankly, I'm impressed, especially after two playdates at two different parks and "relaxing time" with Molly in their room. No relaxing is ever done during this time but the girls know they can't come out of their rooms until I come get them. It used to be called nap time but since they both quit napping last summer they get mad if I say the word nap. Sigh. I'm going to have a write a new dictionary.
Here are all three girls at the first park this morning when they were still pretty clean. Emily is showing off the braids, Molly is showing off her fluffy yellow hair without any clips, bows, or accessories of any kind, anywhere at anytime, and Heidi is showing off a head full of potential.
