While we were playing outside a few days ago, I let this little one dig in the dirt...and get super dusty dirty.
We don't really have grass in our backyard (thanks, Warrior!). It's more like a giant dust pit.
She took her "doots" (boots) off and dug her sock feet into the dust. There's still a little on her face.
She had a really fun time.
And when we came inside, a dose of inspiration and courage hit me...
I gave the camera to Sister. She captured all of this! (And I'm so thankful. She did awesome!)
I was a little concerned with how the hair cut would turn out...
Her hair is very fine and straight.
A snack always helps!
She was really excited.
I think she felt super grown up. She kept grinning and pulling her shoulders up.
Preciousness, I'd say.
A smile and "about time" was The Engineer's response.
If you talk to Little Bit, she'll probably grab a section of her hair to show you.
And just to keep it real, I thought I'd show you our master bathroom - where the hair cut took place.
Seven years. That's how long we've lived with it like this. This Christmas will make eight.
For a while we had our family picture with Dave taped where a mirror should be - as inspiration and a reminder why it's ok, even good, to live with our bathroom looking like this.
The walls will have to be re-sheet rocked. They were in pretty bad shape. The Engineer hit the window with the ladder in the middle of the night shortly after we'd moved in - he was trying to stop a roof leak - and bam! Broken glass...hence the duct tape. And well, it is what it is. And I'm okay with that. One day...one day.
Happy weekend, y'all!
