I don't even have time to curl my own hair!

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!

  1. oh a little girl would be sooo fun :)

  2. Have fun keeping those curls up! I hear ya. My stepdaughter has stick straight hair. I have to use a ton of hairspray and actually bobby pin the curls in place to get them to stay. LOL Thankfully, she doesn't ask anymore.

  3. I only have boys, so I'm slightly jealous...and by "only" I mean "can't do anything with their hair and other frufru stuff".
    Aww! She's so CUTE!

  4. Remebering fun times right now. My daughter though thankfully got her daddy's curly hair instead of my stick straight. But of course she has spent half her life TRYING to make hers straight including expensive treatments now, haha...NO ONE is ever happy. Have a good day. HUGS

  5. Oh. You are so dedicated. I gave up for my daughters dance recital and went and bought the curly bun they wanted. Yup. I clipped her hair on.
    I was looking for a pic of the finished product.

  6. Oh, to have a little girl...
    I'll gladly keep my boys! ;)
    I'm not cut out for dance recitals...I like mud and skinned knees...

  7. I'm with you. I don't even curl my own hair anymore either.

  8. Yeah. I feel ya. I have the same super straight hair and there is NO WAY mine would ever curl like that.

  9. My internet connection is being funny, so I apologize if you get my comment twice.

    I remember those recital days all too well and I sure don't miss those up-do's. One year, I had to do my daughter's hair three nights in a row for three separate performances. Not fun. I hope you enjoyed the recital, though.


I'd love to hear what you think!
