Last fall I chopped all my long hair off for a sassy new do. At first Elizabeth was devastated. I wasn’t her twin anymore! The next morning she apologized for her reaction and told me how much she loved my hair cut.
Recently she informed me that she loved my hair cut so much that she wanted to follow in my footsteps, chop it all off and become twins again. Fortunately I talked her out of it and convinced her to go with the braided look instead. We’ve been braiding her hair religiously every morning. This morning was no exception, however, as I was finishing up the second pigtail Elizabeth made an announcement.
“Mommy, I want bangs like yours.”
Hmm… I’ll consider it.
We finished getting ready for the day and rushed out the door a short time later.
Driving down our street, Elizabeth’s mind was still on bangs.
“Hey mom, you know what?”
“Those houses have icicles on them. They look like bangs for houses!”
I might have to give in to this girls demand for bangs…
