Jaclyn wakes up every morning with an idea about what she wants done with her hair. She will come up to me and say "pretty hair". Our conversation will then go something like this:
Mom (me): How would you like your hair done?
Jaclyn: umm....with a pony.
Mom (me): one or two?
Jaclyn: two, then its beautiful!
Mom (me): OK.
She will then run to the bathroom and stand on her step stool and wait for me to style her hair. Then she will declare "I am so beautiful".
There are times that her hair has clips and ponytails or just hair clips. One thing that is always the same is that she announces to the whole house (or whoever is listening) that she is beautiful and waits for someone else to complement her.
One thing this girl has is lots of self confidence.
I told her I wanted a picture of her hair and these are some of the faces that she gave me.
As I didn't have Internet for a good portion of the summer I am going to be writing about some of the adventures that our family had this summer.
My birthday was in August and my kids really wanted to do something for me to celebrate as a family. Chris managed to convince them that a birthday party or cake would not be the best idea this year. So instead we went to this cute little ice cream shop that is only open for a few months of the year. It's really cute!
One other thing I should say is that I was really sick for my birthday. The day before I went to the doctor and found out that I had as the doctor put it "bad strep throat and tonsillitis". I felt horrible and all I wanted to do was sleep but my kids really wanted to do something for me so we went out for ice cream. My kids had a great time and really enjoyed the whole day. Through out the day both my kids would randomly say happy birthday or they would sing the happy birthday song to me.
I sure love my kids they can make me smile even when I felt so gross.
This summer we stayed at a house that had one of those circle chairs that you sink into. Both of my kids thought that it was a really cool chair. Here are some pictures that I took one of the times that they weren't fighting over who got to sit in the chair that time.
