So I got a haircut last night and I have short hair so sometimes my stylist goes a little berzerk with the styling and I think "Am I supposed to go out in public like this?" Don't get me wrong, I love my stylist, she's done my hair since I was in Jr. High or High School, she did my wedding hairdo and evertying in between and since! But, it seems that stylists typically like to get a little wild with the styling and my hair, being short, was quite spikey and big last night! Mom watched Emma for me and when I got to her house they were being sneeky and hiding in the the living room, I waited for their attack in the dining room and Emma came running, stopped short in between the living and dining rooms, took one look at me and said "monkey hair"...mom and I start laughing and mom is like, did she just say "monkey hair"? Emma points at me and again says "monkey hair" and she was keeping her distance!
My little monkey loves monkeys, she has umpteen stuffed monkeys, monkey books, monkey socks, monkey shirts, a monkey cup (her recent fave from grammy), etc. so it was kind of not surprising for her to attach the word monkey to something else! This all began because from the time she was born she's had long toes like daddy and we call her monkey toes, so that name kind of stuck and led to a monkey obsession. Her mural on her wall is a jungle scene I painted when we moved in. So anyway, this was one of those hilarious moments anyway and gave me a bit of a complex about the hair since I already thought it was cut too short this time! It was cute though, she was leery to even come close to me for a minute then when she did she was touching my hair, patting it, feeling the funky spikes, giggling. Oh well, it made us all laugh so that's one for the baby book!
Speaking of baby books, I've GOT to catch up on that and photos and the Emma's 1st Year Scrapbook a family friend made me when she was born...considering she'll be 2 in June I'm feeling like a slacker mommy for not keeping up with that stuff better! I hear from other moms that this is quite common, I mean really, who has time? I have so many photos though stored up ready for scrapbooking and picture albums. I'm better with the framed photos around the house, when I get prints I right away update some frames but always keep a couple of the favorites of her from her lifetime including the shots of us bringing her home. I just hope memory serves me well as she grows up if I don't keep better written records of the silly, smart and outrageous moments she has!
On her first flight, with her best buddy monkey Harold...almost a year ago now, wow!
