“Can I have the blue bow in my hair today?”
Simple enough question.
But with my kids and in my house not simple enough apparently.
Well, not 5 minutes earlier had I helped do older daughter’s hair for the upcoming school day. I put her hair in a high ponytail with a blue bow as the finishing touch.
See, she was wearing a blue Justice Emoji sweater that went perfectly with this same royal blue bow.
Same daughter was now off eating her breakfast for the day in the other room happily sporting the blue bow in her hair.
Now, it was daughter number two’s turn to get her hair done.
She was wearing black leggings with silver glitter embellished leggings and panda long sleeve baseball tee. The sleeves on the tee are a baby blue color, while the panda face is black and white on the actual shirt front.
As I went to comb her hair out to do a high braid in it for the day, she asked me that first question in this article.
When I answered her that her sister had it in her and it didn’t match her outfit for the day, that is when the fireworks occurred.
Never mind that we had perfectly good black bow that went better with her outfit or that “sharing is caring”. Because little sister wasn’t having any part of it!
See the crying, the whining and overall dramatic performance took flight that morning.
Still, I continued to do her hair. I also tried to ignore her histrionic performance as best as I could. Although, I may have told her that I would throw all the bows away and cut off all her long hair if she didn’t stop.
Eventually just like any other show, my daughter’s thankfully and finally came to an end.
So just like that it was over as quickly as it all began. Consequently this may very well be my way of tying a blue bow nicely and neatly around our mornings around here!
