Two Ponytails

This past week my little girl was all about having two ponytails.

Every. Single. Day.

Surprisingly, I was okay with that since few things say little girl to me like two little ponytails. I'm sure there will come a day, in the not so distant future, when she will no longer let me fix her hair or she may even want her hair cut (Gasp!).

So for now I will gladly continue to wrestle her abundant, squirrelly, curly hair into two teeny tiny elastic bands without gritting my teeth and screeching toholdyourheadstillstopturningyourheaddon'tsquirm. I will. With a little help from Above.

On another note, this scene from the refrigerator tickled my funny bone. Seems Annelise could only eat half of her banana so she put a clip on it (like we do our cereal and chips) and popped it into the fridge.

Problem solving by a five year old. Love that.


  1. OMG......that child is watching your every move. She is so observant. And thrifty!

  2. A. has such gorgeous hair...if she ever wants to get it cut, I'll gasp!

    Love the clip on the banana. Too cute!

  3. your.frig.is.too.clean!!!!!! aaahhhh!!!!!
    She is precious with her clipped banana & ponytails....
    If Gracie doesn't finish something, she always wants to "save" it....good? bad? hmmm....G is either thrify or a pack rat! (I fear the latter....!) Have a great Monday!!!

  4. sweet girl!! I just love her ponytails...and her solution for the banana! She's smart...like her mama!

  5. The clip on the banana was too cute, and smart I bet there was no blackness on it.

  6. The ponytails are so cute, I love the little-girlness of them.

    She's clearly brilliant to put that clip on the banana!

  7. I remember my mom doing my ponytails with super long hair like that, I loved having her brush my hair, but I know it was a chore for her. I'm sure she looks back on it now with good memories... I also remember the 1 time my dad tried YIKES

  8. That A. she is so darn cute!

    I love the pony tails & the banana- what a doll~

  9. Waste not want not...your girl has it down! Too cute. Wanted to come by and say thanks for visiting me. I enjoyed discovering your blog...love your pics. You have encouraged me to move that dial on the camara. UHHHH and I have mantle envy...LOVE the vintage fan and that floral. I think I read the word silouettes as well...which I collect. Do you make them? I will be adding you to my blog roll if you don't mind. cherry

  10. A is so girly! I love it! They really do watch every single thing, don't they?

  11. love the banana clip!!

    I "let" my mom brush/do my hair til I was 12 or so, and even then I'd get her to french braid it or such. my daughter, no way! she does it herself, pony tail every single day. it's been a long time since I've done her hair (though recently she has "let" me help her learn how to get it into a high ponytail)


I'd love to hear what you have to say. I try to reply to comments and answer questions within each post so be sure to check back from time to time. Thanks for visiting!
