Is this thing on?
I know I haven’t written in what seems like ages, and it’s not like I haven’t intentions to, it’s just the stuff of life has kept me from sitting still enough to type away.
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know I’m always moving.
A few weeks ago I finally got my hair colored again. The white hairs were nearing two-inches long and it was time. I love hair color because it allows me to do something different, and have fun. I don’t particularly like blending in with the crowd, I like to walk my own way. So, this bit of color is always my chance to break the mold.
At my oldest daughter’s soccer practice that night my little one was busy blowing bubbles, and finding ways to amuse herself. Both my girls love the colors and are always begging me to let them color their hair. I may let them, as a reward for hard work at school once the report cards come home. We’ll see.
When you first meet my little one, you’re likely to find her a bit shy. She’s more amiable, and always needs time to adjust and get to know others. Once you get to know her, she’s a little ball of sass, and I love it.
M: Mom, I love your hair.
QS: Thanks, I like it too.
M: When they colored all your white hair, did they smooth out your wrinkles too?!
Of course, she asked her rhetorical question with that mischievous smirk in her eyes. Her mind is quite quick witted. It made me laugh. I love to laugh.
Moments like these, make me rejoice to be a mother.
ps. Who knows when I’ll post again, this week we have two birthdays, a combined birthday party, four soccer practices, two performing group practices, voice lessons, ballet, two soccer games, and I host activity days at my home for 8-9 year old girls.
