Every year Kimberly goes away for a whole 24 hours leaving me with complete control of the house and kids. This weekend it just so happens that Hannah-Graceâ€™s ballerina recital picture is this Saturday. This means, I will have all the kids to get ready and leave the house (as normal) by 9:30am. The boys have a swim class, Isaac will be in the childcare, and H-G needs to go to her dance class. But this time H-G has to be in full costume, a bun in her hair (complete with flower), and make-up. And when the pictures come back she really needs to look good (so that I can remain alive). No stress. No worries.
Ok, Iâ€™ll be honest â€“ Iâ€™m not so good with hair, so this afternoon I made Kimberly (and H-G) have a pre-recital pre-picture pre-make-up practice. I learned how to keep the hair from â€œflying awayâ€ and how to make â€œcâ€ shapes with the make-up brush on her cheek. Can you ever really ever have too much hairspray?
Please donâ€™t tell anyone, it will kill my blue steel persona. I’ll let you know how it goes, and I’ll post a picture as soon as I get one.
