Pixie Cut!

Oldest has been asking us for a Pixie cut for about a year or so. I finally caved. :) She really has a sensitive head--brushing her hair each day was a chore, people! And she's wanting to be more independant and take showers all on her own, and having shorter hair will definitely help there!


But most importantly, it's cute. ;o)

What a cute little Pixie! ;)

  1. That is such a cute haircut on her! I'm so impressed that you cut it yourself.
    Have you started school yet? Were starting Sept. 1st. The hardest part for me is getting back on the routine!

  2. I can't believe I forgot to mention this, but my friend, who's a stylist, cut her hair. :) I cut hair, but not that well! HA!

    Ugh. I was going to write about our first day of school(yesterday). I went ok. Just ok. :/ I know it's because we've not had a great routine in place the last few weeks and everyone just needs to get used to the new schedule. ALSO I need to figure out how to school with a 2 year old. Any suggestions? ;o)

  3. Omg! School with a two year old is very hard. I am in the same boat. Susannah will be 2 on sept. 5. No suggestions really, just the usual ideas of having "special" toys that you get out only during school that may occupy them for a little bit. I think trying to include them as much as possible at the school table is a good idea too, like with coloring and play dough and things. But, as you know, its all on their own terms! It is hard. Susannah is still nursing! Are you still nursing or has your little guy weaned? I know it is in her best interest to stop nursing at this point because she doesn't "need" it anymore, and honestly, I think its affecting g her sleep. She still gets up multiple times in the middle of the night and I have to nurse her back to sleep. My boys all weaned themselves around 18 months. My 9 year old nursed till she was 2 and a half, but I feel like its time with this one. Any suggestions?

  5. Well, I'm a HUGE breastfeeding advocate--so kudos to you, Lady! :) My longest was Middlest--she was 22 mos when we stopped. I stopped nursing Littlest a little sooner--at around 19 mos. Every kid is so different, right?

    I had the SAME problem with him, though. It seemed like the older he got, the *more often* he wanted to nurse at night and I was TIRED. TIRED. TIRED. One of my friends told me to try and let him cry for 3 nights, and by the third night he would be fine. (She did it with all of her kids.) And you know what? It worked! The first night was HORRIBLE. He cried for almost 2 hours. But the second night was WAY better and the third night he slept all the way through!

    I'm not necessarily advocating letting them cry it out--every mom is SO different and to be honest, I don't *really* do that. But I was at my wit's end and had to try something. In hindsight, I wish I would've done it sooner!

    I'll pray that you find a good solution, Catherine. I know how hard that is!

    I'm thinking, as far as school is concerned, that we'll have to do a lot of the "table work" (math, copywork, etc) while he's napping. Not ideal, since *I* like quiet time!! And NEED it some days, but I guess I'll have to take one for the team! It's only a season, right? ;)
