This IS a true emergency —
my hair has gone ROGUE!”
Something truly miraculous happened this week — it turns out the Little Lady’s hair can hold a PONYTAIL!!!! (insert the mommy-happy-dance here)
Do you know how long I’ve waiting for this moment?
As I fashioned her first ponytail, she squirmed as I pulled and twisted her tresses. “Ow! Ow! Ow,” she said in her baby voice. “Too bad,” I muttered through the rubber-band I was holding in my lips. “You’ll get used to it.”
Saturday was a happy, happy day. . . . until she pulled the ponytail out. The little Rat! Every time I turned around, she was reaching to the top of her head & looking for the bow and band. A stern look from me was all it took for her to sheepishly lower her hand. Oh, yes — I’ve got that Mommy look DOWN!
Then, suddenly, I was distracted. It was such a brief moment but it was enough. Out came the ponytail. Unfortunately, she thoroughly succeeded in undoing the cute look and showing us her special talent. Her hair MAINTAINED the updo, albeit a sadder version of that shape.
Do you know how hard it is to keep this toddler looking adorable in public, especially now that I know what her hair is truly capable of? STRESSFUL!
