So you wanna know how I spent a good part of my Tuesday?
Trying to get my 4 year old daughter's super straight hair (inherited from me) into the "curly ponytail" requested by her dance teacher for her ballet recital pictures that were today!
After an attempt with these curlers and achieving curls that lasted about 7 minutes, I ended up dragging out the curling iron I haven't used since, well, I don't know when, college?
The results were better, but Baby, you'd really be best served embracing the straight look; trust me on that one and it could save you years worth of time!
My little girl also got to indulge in some blush, lipstick, and eyeshadow for the pictures. A rare treat for sure. But, when she began eying the rest of my make-up and demanding, "I want to be MORE fancy!" I knew it was time to cut her off and perhaps spend less time reading the Fancy Nancy books as well!
I'm definitely not cut out to be a Toddlers and Tiaras mom!
But we do get to repeat the whole scene tomorrow for the rehearsal and again Sunday for the recital! And then, the lipstick, bobby pins, and curling iron will be packed away for another 12 months!
