A Few Firsts

The time has finally arrived for Miss Ev to get her first official haircut. I have put this off for quite some time because, frankly, I thought she would throw a tantrum. But we talked about it on the drive to the salon, and I promised her a red lollipop when she was finished. The monkeys sat patiently in the stroller while mommy got her haircut first.

Of course, my salon experiences have drastically changed. I usually wash my own hair at home and leave with a wet head to save time. (And I really miss having someone wash my hair. Love that!)

Therese has been cutting my hair for a few years, and she was terrific with Eveley. She just trimmed it up a bit, and Eveley was perfectly angelic. Hmmm... You know the saying. They always "save the drama for their mama." Hate that.

Later, I was practicing my piano music for church, thinking the kids were eating a snack in the kitchen. I walked in to this.

It actually went much better than I would have guessed. She's becoming a little helper and wanting to do "mama" things. She helps me wash the dishes, "fold" the laundry, and then I walked in to this...

"What are you doing?" I asked

"Changing Potato's diaper," she said.

LOVE the fact that she had the potato configured pretty perfect on that diaper. {I don't think my husband can put a diaper on that straight!!!} What a wonderful little helper Miss Eveley is!!!
