So Smart

My four year old daughter is going to Pre-school in about 2 weeks. I wanted to give her wild locks a nice trim at a salon. I usually cut it myself, so this was a bit of a splurge. So we get there and she wont let go of me. She regressed into a baby, she wouldn't talk or cooperate at all. After about 15 minutes of bribing, threatening and almost giving up, we decide she can sit on my lap. It wasn't working well because she had gone limp and was pretending to sleep. I thought all was lost until this cute little hair dresser handed my Wild Child a mirror. She squirted a pile of moose onto it and showed her how to draw pictures with it. Wow!!! What a turn around. She sat by herself and drew pictures until 10 minutes later her hair was cut and we were ready to go. If you are taking a small child for a back to school haircut, be sure to mention this ingenious idea to your stylist.

Oh my gosh, what a great idea! I would've been outta there. I hate it when I have to 'parent' and people are just standing around watching.

Hey there lady! Tonight is the first time in a while I've been to blogger world. I'm sorry you've been sick! I hope you're feeling better. I had to giggle at all the HP references. I had no idea that you hadn't read them. May I make a suggestion? Get the books on CD. I am not kidding, they are fab-U-lous! AND you can listen to them OVER and OVER as you are doing your trash to treasures, or making me a asphalt pie, or making me some sprinklers. :)
