Anna (4) has a new hair fashion that she has been sporting on and off for about a month now.
Ah, if only I had that digital camera in my paws right now, you could see exactly what I’m talking about. But, alas, dh is still researching around for the best deal on one for me, which may not come until next Friday (you know WHICH Friday I mean – THAT Friday!)
Therefore, you will just have to settle for my feeble attempt at describing it – which somehow just doesn’t have the same effect.
Her new hair fashion is. . . clothespins! Yes, I did say clothespins – those pinchy things that some people still use to hang their wet clothes out to dry with, but that around here are used mainly for keeping our chips from escaping from their bags (not to mention the occasional tent fort that requires clipping together – which explains why there are never any of them around when I need them for the chip bags!)
So anyway, every time Anna finds a clothespin lying around, she has been using it to clip up her hair in many fetching styles. My favorite was when I turned around and there she was – with a clohespin on either side of her head – Pippi Longstocking style. She has also worn them on the back of her head in a sort of a ponytail. This morning she had it all pulled up on top of her head and it actually looked quite lovely! Then there is the style she’s wearing right now – one clothespin just stuck in the hair on one side of her head…not holding any hair up, mind you, just stuck there.
One of the best parts of the whole thing is watching her after she has clipped her hair just the way she wants it – she kind of tilts her head sideways, with a small smile, and you know she is totally enjoying how lovely she feels!
Now how could I have written a post this long about this??!! Well, they say a picture speaks a thousand words – so I guess describing this picture takes a lot of words! (So far, 385 to be exact!)
I’ll give it a rest now – but don’t be surprised when you see this new style displayed on the checkout aisle magazine covers! – it really WOULDN’T be surprising, now would it?!
