Recently, Rachel asked me to put her hair up in ponytails. This surprised me, as she usually runs screaming from the room if I even show her a hairbrush. Doing her hair for her ballet recitals is usually a nightmare - for both of us. So I was excited to seize this opportunity to do something cute with her hair!

When I was finished, I told her to take a look in the mirror. I asked her how she liked it. She replied matter-of-factly, "I think I look a little bit gorgeous."

Unfortunately, she hasn't let me do anything fun with her hair since...

100th Post!

My friend Debbie once mentioned that she can gauge how busy I am by how much I post to the blog. Evidently, I've been very busy lately! But I did have to mention that this is my 100th post! Some bloggers do something cool for their 100th post, like making a list of "100 Interesting Things About Me". Not only did I find that rather self-indulgent, but I ran out of material at about Interesting Thing #8. Some bloggers hold a comment raffle, where, if you post a comment to the 100th post, your name gets put in a hat, and the blogger (or one of her children, as is often the case) draws a name for a nifty prize. Frankly, I don't have anything nifty to give away without a trip to the store, so that's out. So, I'll just close this 100th post by saying thank you for dropping by and visiting our little corner of the world! And maybe someday I'll hold a little comment raffle!
