pixie girl….

this girl told me a few weeks ago that she doesn’t want short hair anymore…….

and it’s taken me this long to get myself together in order to write a post about it.

let me tell you a few things about Lola…..she’s a strong willed….no holds bar….a non girlie girl….

she wears striped shirts with polka dot tops….

she wore a dress over jeans and converse shoes to the mother daughter tea…..

she has a closet full of dresses and skirts………that have never been worn………


i have to bribe her with candy in order to take her photo in something decent ……

she lives in jeans……..

we had the discussion of where babies come from and she said…no thanks mom….i don’t think i want any babies…..

….i only have control over two things in her life at the moment……

…her hair and her room…..

she asked that i paint her room……and i said….hmmm…..sure…let me think about it….

and now she doesn’t want her “signature” short pixie cut…….she’s had the look since she was almost 3.

It’s HER look. No one else has her look at her age. I love it………

….like i love her name……and her whole self…….her image…her personality……


…at what point do you say….o.k.?

i know it’s just hair….i know.

but i also just booked a ticket to let my 8 year old boy fly home from his grandparents home…on an AIRPLANE………………………. by HIMSELF!

Do parents actually do this?……….let an 8 year old fly by themselves?……

….o.k……………….

i’m hyperventilating………

….call 911…..

…oh…flashback…..please don’t ….because i hear i might get a bill for that……..

…and yes..i did give them the cookies……………..and i asked them if they wanted my children….

…for free…nothing involved…….but they smiled…..

o.k….i don’t know if they were really smiling…but they took the cookies….

..please tell me this is normal….and i will survive not being in control of such a minor problem such as hair….

..pixie hair….on a girl named Lola….
…L..O…L…A…lola….
{and yes…she rides a vintage PIXIE pink banana seat bike……
..and the Lola b shop….will re-open thursday…….
