H had her hair cut last week - a sassy little short do that is perfect for the summer.
M, being H's shadow, was looking on. She wanted a cute short do as well - but she was having stress over the decision. Thinking that the decision would take days at most I cleaned up and put away the scissors and cape (the kind that keeps the hair off of the girls, not the kind I wear because I think I'm a Super Hero... I never put that away)
The source of her stress? She finally divulged to me that she wasn't sure she wanted to cut her hair that short because she wanted to have it long for prom.
She is Seven years old.
(we compromised, her hair is now to her shoulders, it should be able to grow back over the next ten years...)
On Sunday sweet M drew pictures in church again (this time she left out the "details" (wrinkles) on my face...
her most interesting picture was the design she made for her wedding cake.
13 layers... that's probably unlucky or something... unlucky for whoever has to drive it from the bakery to the reception at least!
This is a girl who has her life planned out!
Romance: I have been told a list of qualities and requirements... I might have added a few...
Career: She has moved from Doctor to Veterinarian (or Vegetarian... depending on whether or not she's confused that day)
House: She draws house plans with rooms dedicated to all of her favorite things... her friend A, movies, swimming, her sister... these are mansions of course and so she has a fall back plan in case she's not independently wealthy... she'll stay with me.
I am adding "independently wealthy" to the Romance list right now.
Kids: all girls - because boys are annoying.
I'm assuming that "not annoying" is already on her list for the perfect husband.
