The girls hair reached the stage a few weeks ago that it needs to be tied back or it is in their eyes. I have used headbands, clips and ponytails but by far Jenna’s favorite hairdo is pig tails. She loves pig tails. When she sees the headbands come out she gets mad and kind of whines but when she sees this come out, she gets excited.
I get everything ready on the floor and the minute I sit down, this happens….
She lays her head right down on my legs so that I can put them in.
Granted her pig tails are not that big yet and I can not get her hair in the back of her head to reach yet but that doesn’t stop her. When we get done, she always wants to see herself in the mirror. She gets so happy.
Quinn could care less what is in her hair. She knows it has to get done so she does it.
I think she would rather go exploring but we get it done and then she is off. She doesn’t care what she looks like. We think she is cute though.
On a side note, I could use some prayer for more patience with the kids. I think everyone is adjusting well but we still have a lot of little hiccups. Nights are getting better, we are no longer sleeping in the girls room anymore. But, I was up 5 times last night and that was a good night. I was only up for about 2-5 mins. each time but I think it is wearing on me. I am yelling a lot at the kids and they go to their rooms or the time-out stair a lot. I don’t really feel like playing with the kids at all so I do my own thing around them. I feel like if it continues, I will probably scare the kids into silence when they are around me and I don’t really want that so any prayer would really be great.
