I (obviously) have four children. But I only have one little girl.
She used to be a Zen baby.
|Grandma Gausman & 6 month old Paige|
Now, well, let’s just say the word most often used to describe Paige’s disposition on her daycare’s daily sheets is sassy.
|Don't touch my Easter candy|
And while she does love dresses (sometimes)
|Note the shoes|
She hates, and I mean HATES it when I try to do anything to her hair. Now, I have found that (much to Carl's chagrin) if I let her sit on the counter with her feet in the sink she is marginally more tolerable of my attempts to wrestle her hair into adorable pigtails. But sitting on the counter leads to grabbing the faucet, the cans that need to be rinsed out for recycling, and anything else she may be able to reach.
In Paige’s defense, her hair is a bit hard to deal with. There is a lot of it and it isn’t stick straight like Matthew’s or even pleasantly wavy like William’s & Joshua’s. She has inherited my not-quite-straight-not-quite-curly-stuck-in-some-horrible-in-between-place locks. Her hair is impossible to comb, hard to brush & she’d rather just flip it out of her eyes than let me do anything to it. She pulls out headbands & barrettes and little butterfly clippie things don’t stand a chance around her brothers. So most days I just try to pull back the sides in a simple half pony tail and hope for the best.
But, she was beginning to look just a tad bit to wild-child for my taste
And her bangs were practically under her eyes so the other day I picked her up early from day care and we traipsed out to my stylist for a haircut. I warned her that she would need her fastest scissors for Paige.
But you know what? That little booger did awesome. She sat nicely and they even put a few layers in the back so it will lay a little nicer.
So what's a girl to do after an afternoon of beauty? Head for the nearest Starbucks for a cake pop & coffee (vanilla milk) of course!
Because she is Paige, she wouldn't sit nicely for a picture so you can't really tell how cute the haircut is...but trust me, it is way cute. And she knows it!
