Crazy Hair Day (for reals)

Today is "Crazy Hair Day" at Barker. Morgan was very excited to participate, she's reminded me every day this week. As we were styling her hair this morning I found myself laughing out loud as I remembered a story of a sister of mine in which I would like to share with you. Since I have lots of sisters I'm fairly confident her identity will remain anonymous. In fact I will give her an alias, lets just call her "Stella".

Stella works as a kindergarten teacher. Her school was having crazy hair day. That morning she was having so much fun getting her daughter, a kindergartner too, ready for school with a crazy hair-doo. I think the "doo" was one ponytail braid up high and another way down low, or something like that - an obvious crazy hair style. When the hair was crazy enough my niece gets sent off to school. Now this is the part I'm not sure of - I don't know when my sister realizes that her daughter's school, different from the one my sister teaches at, is NOT having Crazy Hair Day! What did she think, spirit days are district wide or something? I don't know. Poor Eden, I mean, poor niece. I hope she has recovered.

Cute pic of Morgan! Reminds me of Pippi Longstocking, which I loved.

I like the story about your sister and I just may have figured out which one it was ;)

HA HA! Now she'll NEVER live that one down!! The pipe cleaners in Morgan's hair is perfect! Her freckles are the cutest though. :)

Oh Morgan! That is a great hair-do! I think that certain sister wanted me to tell you that it was one plain ponytail and one braid. Both sticking out on either side of Ede - I mean your niece's head. And your poor sister just got the days confused, thinking both schools were having crazy hair day that day. Poor girl. Who doesn't have nightmares about being the only one dressed up for Halloween when walking up to school?

That is an absolutly adorable picture of Morgan. And you are one great mom to take the time to do all those fun things for your kids. You'll never regret spending that time on them, either. You only regret it when you don't. I always hated it when my kids would launch off on a "Remember when mom....." Now Eden has a real lulu of one about her mom. Sorry Beth, but it will haunt you for the rest of your life..... :)
Love, Mom
