Independence Day

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.


  1. That's awesome. You're such a cool mom letting her do her own hair half the time. I'm glad you got your own blog up and running now. I added a link to it on mine. What an entertaining way to keep in touch.

  2. I can't wait to see what Vicki does when she gets older. I'm sure it will be amazing. As for children doing their own hair and choosing their own clothes- Once I had a mom apologize after school for how her daughter looked that day. The daughter had insisted on dressing herself. To be honest, I didn't even notice that she looked a little off that day! To me, if they are impeccably dressed, then there's too much control at their house. :)
