Our girls are all eager to be independent. Ellie's favorite phrase is, "No! I gonna!" Lexi likes to make her own breakfast. Vicki likes to do her own hair. She likes it so much that we had to come up with a compromise: she does her hair on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, and I get the other days. That way she gets to practice, but she still looks, well, tidy - at least part of the week. Yesterday was Tuesday and she was feeling especially creative.
The thing is, no matter how...interesting...her hair looks, I still think she's beautiful.
