Weekend Recap

Posted on

Hub had been bugging me for a while to have Lucy’s hair cut. It was constantly in her mouth and eyes and full of food. I was being stubborn though, basically forcing her to have long hair because, well, isn’t that the best part of having a little girl? Lucy began to be more insistent of a haircut after Bud’s most recent venture, insisting that it should be short just like his. I gave in and took her this weekend but only after telling Hub that as her mother I was in charge of her hair, at least while she can’t tell me what she wants, and that we were just trimming the ends.

My daughter though, well you know, she’s tenacious.

She wanted a “real” hair cut. She didn’t want any more barrettes or pony tails. She likes short hair!

We compromised on a chin length bob that is angled on the sides to keep the hair from her mouth. She did not want her bangs cut which was a relief to me because I’ve been working on growing them out since Christmas.

Ok, so it’s the perfect haircut for her.

Her bangs are in her eyes, but can easily be pushed aside. She refused a barrette this morning and tucked her hair behind her ears.

Just like me.

She is my daughter. I have no idea how to do anything with my hair, and quite honestly, I have no desire to do anything other than “wash and go”.

I hate it when Hub is right.

We rounded out our Saturday with a trip to the nail salon, where she picked out a royal purple polish with subtle sparkles for my toes, declaring “This is my FAVORITE color Mommy!!! PURPLE!!!”. She sat patiently on my lap while I had my pedi, and then had her toenails painted the same color afterward.

All of us went to the Drive-In to see Kung Fu Panda on Saturday night. Bud loved the movie while Lucy was enamored with having pillows and blankets spilled out all over the back of our van. I rather enjoyed the onion rings… We didn’t get home until after 11:30, but the kids slept until 9:00 Sunday morning, so it worked out ok for me.

I took the kids to the grocery store yesterday morning where we picked out Father’s Day cards and the ingredients to make waffles for breakfast. While in the self-checkout, a coupon for tampons printed out, and it had a dancer on the front of it. Bud pointed out that I had a coupon and I said that I didn’t need that one. He asked “Why? Because you’re not a ballerina??” Yes, exactly.

I think that Hub had a good day, even though he was the one to cook dinner. We had steak, potatoes and corn on the cob, all on the grill, and it was delicious. I had made a chocolate pie for dessert which we enjoyed after the kids were bathed, and we went to bed early.

Finally, I tested my mobile posting skillz last night to find out if I could give you up to the minute detail from the hospital. That sounds a bit extreme, right? But at least I know I can tell you all that she is here and not worry about not logging on to my computer for a week or 2. YAY!

  1. Oh, I loved that part about her picking out your polish. Girls can be so fun sometimes, when they’re not being hellbeasts.Drive-in movie! Oh, I am jealous. That sounds AWESOME.

  2. Maggie’s favourite colour is purple too. She’ll settle for pink if she has to.What? No pictures of the new haircut? I’m sure she looks adorable.

  3. Haircut photo, please!Also, hospital updates are coming in a few weeks!! Oh, boy!!!

  4. No Whey Mama- I said to Hub last night that we were looking at about 5 weeks and I think he finally understood my panic.All- I will post photos of the haircut and the toes this evening. I know you want to marvel at my swollen feet anyway…

  5. Oh good, I was going to ask for pics, too.And we get live, hospital updates? YAY!

  6. A drive-in movie! Oh, that’s fun!

  7. Ooooo! I want to see the haircut! Also, I love your mobile posting skillz. You are hilarious.

  8. Sounds like a fabulous weekend. If your hubby had to be right one time, at least he chose Father’s Day weekend. You can consider that your gift to him.Drive-in movie – wow!

  9. Purple is her favorite! A child after my own heart.Also, I always think that long hair is a privilege, not a right. So if the girl herself doesn’t even want it, by all means, the chopping off sounds like a great idea. And a chin length bob sounds super cute.

  10. I join the throngs asking for a haircut pictures.I love “Because you’re not a ballerina?”

  11. Ha! Your cell phone is hooked up to the internet, you can officially have that baby now. GO!

  12. Tessie~hellbeasts. That is a PERFECT description of my 7 year old! 🙂 haCan you use your cell in the hospital? We couldn’t at ours, at least not in the delivery area. What a bummer.My kids LOVE getting haircuts. Must be because I’ve had the same hairdresser for 24 years.

  13. Aww, I hope that you post pictures of Lucy’s new haircut. It sounds really cute. And the toenails too!The drive-in sounds like fun. We have one not too far from here. I wonder how Zachariah would do.
