I’m doing my best to stay positive this week. In the midst of a lot of work and challenges, I really need to cling to the fact that my life is beautiful. I need to overlook the struggles, let them go, let them be, because they won’t let up. I need to notice my children and how beautiful they are. I need to listen to their voices, the way they play together, the funny way they phrase things, the sweetness there to be found daily. I need to soak up the evenings with Allan. To notice him there in the room; to really see him and enjoy adult conversation and his handsome face 🙂
Brooklyn has been asking for bangs for months. Maybe even a year. I’ve always said no because I’m selfish with my kids’ hair and want them to have long, flowy locks. haha
Today she was asking me again and I decided she was old enough to be the one deciding what her hair looks like and so I grabbed the scissors and bangs are here.
She looked in the mirror and… looked devastated. “Why did you cut my bangs, mom? I didn’t want bangs! Why did you do this to me??”
Payson’s been obsessed with making lego staffs to copy the staff Max holds in Where the Wild Things Are. I made him a “crown” today out of felt. He picked out a couple pieces and I stapled them together. I thought about making a nice crown but realized he’d love the stapled pieces of felt just as much so I might as well save time.
