I've been about ready to pull my hair out. It's been over a month since I've had my hair cut and it is at the point of having absolutely no body in it at all. Of course with the humidity in the air, my hair remains stuck to my head all day. I can tease it as much as I want and it's going no where! This morning, Mom came over and watched Katie for me while I got my hair worked on. In hopes to have some life put back into it, I got a body wave and cut. I explained to my hair technician what great despair I was in. Through all the hair, she could see the pain in my eyes. She held out her hand of hope and helped me into the chair. I felt like the Queen of Seba as she lathered and massaged spices in my hair to bring it back to life. Now I have to wait 2-3 weeks for my hair to relax in order to do something with it. WHAT WOMEN GO THROUGH TO LOOK HALFWAY DECENT! tehe!
We finally received the Snow White outfit, I won off of eBay. It's so cute! I was excited to see the package in the mail today and of course I opened it up right away and examined it. Katie didn't get to see it until later because she was taking a nap when I got the mail and I had to go to Wal-Mart. I really needed to pick up a few things, so I forgot to show it to her. After Supper, Doug saw the outfit and asked who it was for. Katie's eyes lit up and right away, she asked her Daddy to please put it on her. He just put on the shirt and she went on saying she liked it. At first, he scared me. He told me as he was trying it on her that it seemed awfully tight. Ugh! I couldn't believe it because it is a 2T. Several things began to run through my head, while I was washing dishes. What am I going to do? Will the lady, I bought the outfit from, take it back because it doesn't fit? Could I resell it on eBay & explain the problem? Then he tells me, he thinks it fits alright. Because I was washing Supper dishes, I didn't get to see what he was talking about. Since it was a long sleeve shirt, it wasn't long before Katie asked to take it off. Doug asked her why she wanted it off. "It's hot," she answered. Maybe tomorrow, I can try it on her again and see if it true fits or not.
Wal-Mart is beginning to display their Autumn and Halloween items - scarecrows, baskets, crafts, dishes, and other decor. I was looking at the mixing bowls, thinking maybe my niece would like a set for Christmas when Katie spotted the Scarecrows. They had them in all sizes - tiny, small, medium, large & extra large. She asked me, "Mommy, what's that?" I told her it was a scarecrow. "Scarecrow?" she asked as if she were unsure of herself and looking for confirmation from me. I responded, "yes, that's right." She begged to touch as many scarecrows as she possibly could. I let her hold a couple and reminded her to be careful. Seeing the holiday decorations in stores, puts me in the mood to decorate the house. Normally, I decorate for Autumn the last week of September. It will be so much fun decorating with Katie and building memories for both of us. I hope as she grows older, she will love to decorate and get ready for the holidays just as much as I do.
Put it on your calendar, tonight is the last night Katie will sleep in her crib. We plan to tear down the bed and pack it away tomorrow evening. Until we can get ahold of her twin mattress, she will sleep on her baby mattress. I talked a little bit about it with her tonight, but it didn't seem to bother her. Like she would really know what I was talking about anyway. Doug and I spoke yesterday about the changing table. I think we are going to replace the table with another bookshelf. This way, I will have something to store her diapers/training panties and other toys. It can also serve as a nightstand later down the road.
