when i got her ready for school, she said, "oh caca! can we do pigtails that are really big, and puffy and beautiful? ...with a flower?"
"CAN I do big hair with a flower???" kid, i didn't go to hair school for nothing.
belly up to the
and it was perfection and butterflies and daisies until we walked outside and she skipped through the grass and her shoes got wet.
then i just reminded her about her beautiful hair...
and all was forgotten.
