I have to try really hard not to laugh because she thinks that her pouting is really ruffling my feathers. But hey, if she wants to go quietly pout about something, who am I to stop her! I much prefer it over the huge whining, screaming fits of last week.
Francesca was quickly on the scene as the cheer-up committee.
I also learned a new skill today. I call it "chop the hair". I am kind of weird about my kids hair. When they are little, I really like to keep it long and I am not fond of bangs. I don't know why. They just seem so final. However, little Catherine keeps slurping on her hair and making it slimy, so I had to take drastic action.
Catherine was ambivalent about her new style. She was worried about the rest of her hair coming out while she was sleeping.
"I like my hair so far mommy.", she told me, " but what will happen to my hair tomorrow?" You just never know around here.
