(Jake was sick today, so I stayed home from church)
Instead of reading uplifting thoughts and finding a "Sunday thought" to share, I indulged myself and read the rest of The Boleyn Inheritance! (Totally at the other end of the spectrum of spiritual enlightenment--but enjoyable none the less!)
Onto other topics...
Every once in a while, I get my priorities straight! ...
This afternoon, I let Reilly do her "beauty magic" on me...
Here she is putting on a layer of lipstick that ultimately ended up looking like I had a cold sore on the one side! Gese Louise!
Who wouldn't want a pigtailed head full of glitter goo!
I helped her with some harlot red lipstick! Lovely!
I've been complaining lately about how old I'm looking--
I think the pigtails really do the trick and make me look so much younger!
(Maybe not in a good way, though)
Anyway, it was fun and she didn't pull my hair which was a relief (since I absolutely HATE having my hair pulled!)
I remember when I was little, my mom would let me fix her hair...I always enjoyed having her head as my creative canvas!
Hopefully Reilly remembers some of the good things that I do with her...I sometimes feel like she only harps on the times when she hasn't gotten her way...I definitely find it more of a challenge in the raising of daughters! I feel like we're always butting heads...It's like a battle of wills around here alot of the time...Hopefully, they won't spend their adult life in therapy blaming me for all their troubles!
**Did your mom ever let you "fix" her hair?
**Do you think girls are harder to raise or boys?
