Today when I was helping Claire get ready for school, she asked me to put a barrette in her hair, on the side, because thats how the other girls in her class wear their hair. I did, and she looked in the mirror and said,
"Hm. Thats okay... I guess."
She was then finished getting ready, so I left the room. A few minutes later, she came running into the kitchen and said,
"THIS is how I want to wear my hair today! With a HEADBAND! Not with a barrette like all the other girls, okay Mom?"
So off to school she goes. This is better than fine with me. I hope this trend continues well past the third day of pre-school.
