You've Lost that Lovin Feelin
A few short days ago I was the princess. I was adored by my children. Yesterday, not so much. You see, I usually wear my hair pulled straight back in a pony tail. I have two reasons for this.
1- IT'S HOT! If I didn't pull my hair back off of my neck, I would be a sweaty slimy mess in about 10 seconds flat.
2- I'm lazy. It takes time to actually DO something with my hair. Pony tails are the easiest option.
Yesterday I decided to change things up a little. (BTW - do you know how hard it is to take a picture of the BACK of your head... go ahead... try it!!)

I thought the little curls and swirls were kinda fun. I know you can totally see the bobby pins, but I really didn't care. It was off my neck and not in a pony tail. I thought I had done well. Then I went out to greet my public (I'm a princess, remember?). Baby Girl pointed at my head and said, "What happened to your hair? It's all poofy and pokey! BWAAHAHAHAHAHA! POOFY HAIR! POOFY HAIR!" At this moment Red pipes in to say, "Your hair does look really weird Mom. Why did you do it like that?" Then he starts to laugh. Little Bug likes to laugh when everyone else is having a good time. So, he joins in. But then, off in the distance, I see him! He comes riding up in his mini van and says, "You look beautiful!" Ah, my Prince Charming is always there to save the day!

Another day, another blog look... what do you think of this one?

I like the look of your blog. Great job.

Funny story with the hair. Aren't kids great?!? One day I came home from teaching Seminary (an early morning religion class) My 16 year old was in the class. He came to me and said, "By the way, your hair was sticking straight up in the back!" I asked him why he didn't tell me DURING class. He said he didn't want to embarrass me. I asked, "Don't you think maybe I'm more embarrassed knowing everything wondered what was up with my hair".

Great post! I was so happy when I got to the last few lines. Hurray for our real life Prince Charmings!

you're right, you're right! I'd so take rain over 117 degree heat. That's just to much for the human body to handle. The kids freaked out BECAUSE you always wear your hair up. From now on you should change it up every day and keep them guessing. I think it's fun.

I'm sitting here with my hair pulled back into a ponytail.....just like it is 99 percent of the time.

I think your hair experiment went well, you Mad Hair Scientist, you!
