Randomnity

-Jackson's backyard playset arrived on Wednesday and it is CHANGING MY LIFE.

-Beckham ate an entire loaf of bread that I left out on the counter this week.

-Annabeth is into everything. Curtis did some major childproofing for me last night and now I think I might survive another toddler.

-Curtis has renamed our daughter "Mulley." I'm not sure if I can keep persevering through this hair phase. A haircut may be in the near future.

-Normally I'm ready to wear flip flops by mid-February, but I force myself to wait until March. It is February 27 and I haven't been tempted once.

-Spring, come quickly!

-It makes me extremely happy that both of my children love Chinese food.

-One of our former college students from DBU is coming to stay with us tonight. Yeah! We can't wait to see you, Angela!

-You can watch Compassion's Help Haiti Live benefit online for free tonight at 7:30 CST. Go here. You know you want to. All the cool kids are doing it.

Barrette any bangs that you can, and stock up on clear plastic hair bands. Start her wearing 2 low "ping-tails" in the back until her hair catches up.

At 2, my daughter still had the most horrible mullet, but by 2 1/2, her hair looked like this. So worth it.

So funny about "Mulley". I am the same way with flip flops! I love my rainbows and have actually already worn them about 10 times since January! Lol! But I guess living by the coast it's okay to do some:) Hope you have a great weekend!

My boys built a "deer blind" out of old tree limbs last week in the pasture. They have spent more hours just sitting in there. We should have done that a LONG time ago.

Pig tails are a great option. Mine had the little bald spot in the center back as a baby so as her hair grew, she had to long areas on the side and short in the middle. I trimmed the long ones and it was SO much better. Her hair grew into a cute little bob. Sometimes short is better than awkward.

Amanda, I live in Katy and this weather is killing me. What happened to the 70s we had a couple weeks ago?? And my daughter is almost 16 months and had a serious mullet going on that we decided to go ahead and get cut. I was sad to cut off all the hair she had but really, it was looking BAD. I was watching the Olympics and there was a male ice skater from Russia I think who had the same hair going on as her though and that was the final straw that it was time to cut the mullet.

Love your random posts! Annabeth doesn't need a haircut yet, put a winter stocking cap on her for an hour or so and it may just stay down forever! We lived in No. Dakota for 5 years (Air Force) and one our neighbors had a little boy with real blonde, fine hair that stood straight up for the first six months of his life--until our first freeze and after having his cap on for the first time-it laid down and had a gorgeous head of hair!

Is Beckham 'loafing' around now? Oh, so sorry! I couldn't help myself! I just finished SLI today and my man & I laughed halfway across Colorado (the very barren, but beautiful part!) about your shopping trip with you, Melissa and your Mom! Don't you know that's what Mom's are for???

Get your flip flops ready, it's almost March!

I bet Jackson is having so much fun. Maybe now Annabeth can have fun exploring with less stress for you. She is so cute! I can't hardly imagine a dog eating a whole loaf of bread. I can't wait for Spring either.

You make me laugh, Amanda..
My granddaughter, Mercie, just turned 2 and she has a continuing mullet. The back of her hair keeps growing and the front just kinda stays the same! I have cut the tail off the back at least 3 times now - hoping it will soon let the front and sides catch up.

Cutting her hair will help it grow a little faster (sounds weird but it's true) trim it up a little bit to get the hair growing.
I want flip flop season too, but for other reasons. I'm 7 months prego and it's becoming increasingly harder to put on shoes and tie them. This cold weather in Florida is killing me!

Moose Mama said...

Mulley! hahahahaha!

We used to make little hair "fountains" on the top of our girls' heads. Kinda like Pebbles. Then you can put a cute bow on that!
I just got my 11 year old daughter's hair cut yesterday....it's still down past her shoulders. Today her ears pierced. Honestly, WHERE does the time go.

I refer to Lucy's hair as her "Billy Ray" and like to sing, "Achy Breaky Heart" as I comb it. This mullet is unavoidable. At least that is what I tell myself.

Fran said...

We used our playset until we all but destroyed her and had to bury her. Ha!

And, I watched the entire Haiti Live event and LOVED IT!!! Have you seen Pioneer Woman's Lodge bid lately? I'm out. Unless it sleeps 100 friends. ;)

Amy said...

When one of our teenage neighbor boys came into our house this weekend and said "nice mullet" to my 2 y.o. daughter, I knew it was time. We cut the curls on Saturday afternoon and now she has a little curly swing bob! just keep slappin' a bow on it. your Annabeth is a living doll!

It makes me extremely happy that both your kids love Chinese food. Good pick. It's the best.

Katie said...

I'm nothin' if not random, so you know I'm lovin' the random post. Thanks for sharin'. :)

I've no idea what to do with the wild mess on my daughters head. Stick strait stands on end most of the time with no cooperation. I've often adored the cute head adornments and tried them myself. Unfortunately Miss Wiggles is into the unfettered wild look. ;)

Hang in there on the hair, it is so fun when you can finally do some cute hairdo's! Check out www.cutegirlshairstyles.com for some ideas-even some for short hair! And I am very jealous of even the thought of flip-flops. Here in Wyoming, we are getting ready for our snowy season. My 4 year old begged to wear a skirt and sandals today, and I let her. With full leggings and socks underneath. Then I apologized to all of my children for having them in Cheyenne!

Ginger said...

Love the nickname, but barrettes do seem like the way to go.

StLphotogirl said...

Amen to the flip flops comment. Although I lack your self restraint. I basically wear them year round when I am out of the office.

Missy @ It's Almost Naptime said...

I wore flip flops the other day to go pick up Maggie from speech real quick, and it was a miserable drive. My toes were freeeeeeeezing. Where are we??

The Johnsons said...

Friends were commenting on Liz's hair and I just couldn't stand it anymore. She got her hair cut a few weeks ago and I'm so glad I finally did it. I just went back to that blog post and saw her before/after pictures - I don't know why I waited so long.

Flipflops. I don't know that I ever stopped wearing them. Oops!
