Well i do get lovely comments about my children, so thought i might dedicate an entire post about them. Being school children on school holidays, it's now the only time i get to spend with them 24/7. They don't even manage to get sick or require days off school very often, so i soak them up on holiday time. Today i took the 3 girls out for new hair cuts. I'm a cheapo Just Cuts kind of girl, it's $20 for children, choke, but they've never suffered a bad cut.
So my eldest opted for a big trim - a simple bob for low maintenance & summer ease.
This is girl child number 2. She had a beautiful trim off her waist length platinum hair. I'm rather tired of her always looking perfect, so here is a picture of her 7 days ago, after an untimely scooter-footpath-faceplant incident. Bless her academic & athletic perfection, she is clumsy. So out came her second baby front tooth in 24 hours (the first one was not so violently extracted by a bread roll). I took her to the dentist the following day who is very confident she'll have healthy adult front teeth. The Xrays showed good blood flow in the adult teeth which are still growing well inside her gums & they'll automatically fix any trauma before they cut through. Phew!! The dentist kept saying "so lucky, another month, no good, no good at all". Crikey!! Notice the bloody nose, darling child didn't put her hands out to break her fall, instead stopped on her nose, ripped 'Hitler style' skin from her upper lip & grazed up her arms. We went back to the scene of the crime the following day, incidentally on the way home from the dentist, cause we love to walk, & we found the shattered tooth on the other side of the footpath. Geesh, she sure smashed it out of there. Note: tooth fairy was very concerned & even though no tooth was offered that night, a whopping $6 was left, factoring in 'danger money'.
Now this is girl child number 3 (can you tell i spent a lot of my childhood in Asia, this is how they refered to girls back in the 80s, we were numbers, my brothers were introduced by name of course) . . . anyway, she does a good fringe, always has, since one was forced on her as a 2 year old when her twin sister cut her hair!! She looked in the mirror after having a fringe cut back into her hair today, for the first time in a few years & i said "don't you look like a lovely 8 year old" to which she quipped back "yeah, but knew i could look like i was 5 again". Sorry, since when did an 8 year old need to cut a few years of her age??!!
