Pretend in the pastor's house

When my 5-year-old plays beauty shop (also known as "ripping out Mom's hair), she gets a lot of calls on her pretend cell phone.

Recently, she picked it up, talked for awhile, then hung up. With enthusiasm she said, "Okay. That was your mom. Somebody died at 10:30. I have to get your hair really straight and drive you there. They were sick. Now his is dead."

Oh, and then she draped a blanket over my head - much like the virgin Mary. How does she describe me? As an angel? A nun? Nope.

"Ahhhhhh ... you look like a maid, Mom!"

Oh dear. Maybe she meant Maid Marian from Robin Hood? She was a foxy lady in the Disney movie, so that would be a compliment. I think.

I'm sure you looked stunning. And the veil probably does a great job of hiding all of the bald spots (ouch).

On a diferent note, just noticed the new photo in your 'bio'. How cool is that? Where are you and who is drawing your picture?

Looking like a maid is better than when they get a brush or barrette stuck in your hair!

Brenda, I can't tell you how many times I've had to dig a comb out that they twisted up to my scalp like a curling iron!! I actually have training sessions on the proper use of these things in Mommy's hair! ha! Like parental cosmetology!

Uh. You don't have to tell me. Btdt. There are times now when I am sitting watching tv and I think "It sure would feel good if one of them combed my hair." I suppose one evening of trying to unwind a tangled brush would put an end to those feelings. Its like child birth...a person forgets how much it hurts.
