Ember was building some pretty awesome towers this morning. She built one in particular that was really high. She had to stand on a chair to put the top pieces on. I was surprised at how well she did all by herself.
Brooklyn noticed her playing and decided she needed to come over and take over.
Brooklyn was laughing in the next picture over Sierra getting upset because Brooklyn had scribbled on her letter to me. Sierra wiped it off while Brooklyn uncontrollably giggled over it. (She laughs a lot when she does something irritating. Especially if I tell her not to do it.)
By the way, the girls were home because this morning my car battery was dead. Allan’s going to jump the car tonight when he gets home. I would’ve had a friend take them to school but the nearest one I know well would’ve had to drive an extra hour worth this morning to do it. Instead I let the girls stay home.
So halfway through the day I told the girls that while they were home we should get their haircuts done. When they first started talking about haircuts for the summer I knew I’d take them to a salon because Sierra was dead set on getting an a-line bob haircut. I wasn’t going to attempt something like that!! lol
But in the end, saving $50 (on the two of them) and the gas money (another $10) and all the time of driving clear out there (40 minutes each way) won me over and I cut their hair myself.
And OH BOY was Sierra thrilled with it! She loved it from the first chop to the last snip and posed and fawned over herself in the mirror like a girl in love. A girl in love with her hair. It was so freaking adorable and the fact that I was the one who cut it made me feel pretty darn pleased with myself. lol
Sweet Sierra must’ve said, “Thank you, mom! You’re the best haircutter in the world!” a thousand times today 🙂
