Last weekend, I experienced two new exciting steps on my journey through parenthood. First, I am beginning to feel like a real dance mom because I purchased a bun maker and, gee whiz, this thing actually really works! I had been struggling and getting frustrated trying to get big girl’s hair to stay in a bun. Her dance recital is coming up and she has to have it in a bun this year. Well, bun maker to the rescue! I bought mine at Target but I know that you can find then in other stores (in the hair accessory section).
This looks pretty darn good if I do say so myself. And this is before pinning any of it so it’ll look even better on recital day.
Second big step? Apparently, big girl and I are now at the stage in which I can give her one of my least favorite chores (sorting socks) and she’ll take care of it without any guidance. Now, I love doing laundry. I love fresh laundry. I love the smell of clean clothes. But, I hate sorting socks. I have been known to put away several loads of laundry and leave all of the socks in the laundry basket. But…….
The sock pairs aren’t stuck together at this point but at least they are sorted together. Important to note, this picture was taken right before little girl picked up all of the socks and put them back in the laundry basket thus undoing all of her big sister’s work. But. Still. It’s a big step.
My little girls are growing up so quickly. But at least that means that I don’t have to sort socks anymore.
