So, today I thought the kids might like to take a nap. They weren't really being cranky, I just felt kinda lucky this afternoon and thought it might actually happen. Plus I wanted to blog in peace gosh darn it!
Jeremy got out of bed twice but after I laid him on the big pillow in the living room with a blanket he fell asleep. After thinking about it I remembered his taking a nap is actually a bad thing because he will now be a.) wired for the rest of the night, b.) cranky for the rest of the night, or c.) all of the above. But then I thought about it again and decided I don't care if he does take a nap or even where he does it if it means I can lurk in my favorite blogs. He can lay on the bathroom mat if he'll actually sleep there.
Megan I thought would be easy. If Jeremy falls asleep she's ten times more likely to take a nap without any of the nasty side effects. This afternoon, however, was not as lucky as I imagined. About ten minutes after I noticed Jeremy asleep on the big pillow, Nathan came home (yay!) and got to see Emma in her new duds (which you can't see because she pooped in the jeans before I could take a picture). Not five minutes later we heard a shriek coming from Megan's room. We walked in and sitting on the bed was Megan with the saddest look ever on her face and a comb stuck in her hair. Nathan and I both tried to get it out, but no luck.
She is infamous for trying to "curl" her hair with a comb or brush. Usually I catch her before she makes a really big mess of her hair, but since I thought she was asleep, I didn't see a need to patrol the bathroom or keep the combs and brushes on lock down.
Nathan took Megan to the computer to look at hair cuts for kids and I called a wonderful girl in our ward who cuts hair. About half an hour later Megan was sitting in her professional up and down chair staring at her image in a gorgeous black vintage mirror. I should go back to her house just to take a picture of her hair-cutting room.
Another half hour passes
and Megan's got a new look! ------->
We think it's dang cute.
She really likes it, but was concerned that people may not recognize her now.

On the way home she wondered what
Heavenly Father thinks about her
hair and so she asked Him.
He likes it!
And here's the weapon of mass destruction --->
Kellie Note: Let me explain the first half of the title. Nathan thought it was weird, so I figure explanation is needed. I had plans for Megan's 4 year pictures and they included long hair. Really long hair. And so now, unless her hair can grow like those Play Doh dolls (freaky snake hair!) it's not going to happen. So sad. So very, very sad.
