As a bit of an end of term/school report celebration/’in case’ moment…
I called up a hairdresser’s this morning and booked in baby girl for a hair cut.
The ‘in case’ was just that… in case things shut down again amidst growing coronavirus cases in Victoria, and having not had a hair cut since before she started school at the start of this year, she was really overdue.
I told the hairdresser to cut a fair bit off. She cut, a bit more off.
Neither of us was concerned. Baby girl looked so grown up, so mature. Even with the glittery hair spray and everything. ✨
I took her around the shop later to pick something small to buy. I’ve written about Amazing Toys before, on our first trip there during a school holidays… this place is a haven for kids. Part hairdresser/part pamper place/part workshop play centre/part MASSIVE toy shop.
Just as she suddenly looked so grown up with her shoulder length hair, so too was she mature in her toy choices.
That is, she didn’t really know what to buy.
Have you ever reached that age with your kid, where they want to buy toys, but a part of them is realising that
a) they’ve played with them all before, and
b) it’s all a bit childish now?
I think she knows this, but yet she sees TOYS! and just wants something. I try to encourage her to think about what she would actually play with, remind her of the baskets of stuff she has at home, but still let her make the final choice.
You will be surprised how often they make the right one.
Anyway… love that hair. Love that girl… My big girl. 🥰❤
