Yesterday, while I was taking a shower, Claire decided she had her own project to work on. And of course this wasn't a day where we were going to stay home...we were trying to get out the door to meet some friends for the 11:30 showing of 'Curious George'. Anyway, somehow she managed to get the right side of her hair full of that blue sticky-tack stuff (that is used to hang posters and stuff on walls-it's like Silly Putty, kind of) and a Band-Aid. ?!?!? I don't know what look she was going for, but it looked like blue dreads. Of course, while I was trying to take it out, she was screaming bloody murder. So, I told her she was just going to have to go to the movie like that, then I would have to take her somewhere to see what they could do about it, and they would probably have to cut her hair. I don't think she really understood the consequences of that, because, she was just happy she was going to get a sucker! Ugh! (I did manage to get the Band-Aid out, though.)
So, after the movie we head over to the hair cut place...she tried to pick it out like it would work better for her than it did for me...then she asked if it was water soluble. I have no idea. So she tried to wash it out with shampoo-that didn't work either. But...then she decided to try some detangler. She worked some in and picked a little out...worked some more in and picked a little more out...and just kept on working. She actually started getting some pretty big chunks just sliding off of her hair! And Claire was having a ball, because she had never had her hair "...washed like this before, but my big sister did once!" She's just laying there all relaxed getting a nice cranial massage! That is SO NOT the consequence I was shooting for here people!
After the nice lady got all the blue stuff out of Claire's hair, she thouroughly washed and conditioned it, then blow-dryed it, and only charged me $4.00! I gave her $10.00, and still felt like I should have given her $20 for her patience. Then Claire got her sucker and we were outta there. Happy Valentine's Day.
BTW...'Curious George' was really cute! Especially for the 2-4 crowd. Kids a little older than that may enjoy it too, but, I think by the time they hit 7 or 8 it might be kinda boring. *Just a crazy mom's opinion.*
Never a dull moment...Allison has an appointment this morning, and Ethan has one this afternoon so, another busy day. I'm afraid I'll jinx myself if I say anything, but, Thursday and Friday look like stay at home days, so hopefully I can get some work done on these swaps!
