I put Maggie’s hair into braids last night so she would wake up with waves. It is one of my favorite ways to fix her hair, not just because it looks pretty, but because it makes for a snarl-free morning and cuts about ten minutes off of our getting ready routine because it is so quick!
When not wavy, Maggie’s hair is about seven inches longer- almost below her bum. She says the kids tease her about it. I love it. We are going to be cutting it soon- taking off about five inches and getting rid of any raggedy ends. This should mean cutting her hair to her waist when straight.Maggie and Watson got to play for a bit this morning. That dirt is driving me crazy. We need to seed or sod or something. We moved in to a house with a big bald patch, and then having a dog doubled it. I am so over muddy paw prints.
I took a moment to look at this girl of mine this morning. She is growing like a weed. All but one of her skirts is now indecently short and she needs a whole new spring wardrobe for modesty’s sake.
Then I sent her running for the bus.
They grow up fast. I like school age kids- prefer them over toddlers and like to talk to them and watch their interests and talents developing. Toddlers have cute power- but school kids are interesting. You never know what you’ll get.
