Our Family

This morning I got Lizzy all ready to go to a cheer competition. She was adorable in her cute little brown outfit with matching brown shoes. I also gave her two braids...not the easiest task involving a 2 year old but quite worth the tangle free hair later! If you know her at all, you know that she is quite the fashion expert. She wants to wear what she wants or there will be a meltdown (there are lots of those around here b/c 2 year olds don't often get what they want). She decided that she wanted to wear a baseball cap with Winnie the Pooh on it.

So this Pooh had Velcro on the back so you could size it to fit lots of heads. She didn't like how it fit her so she tightened the Velcro, and the Velcro got stuck in her hair...seriously stuck.

This was all happening as I was driving to see the cheer competition. I asked Andrew to give it a good tug, and it was so stuck that it didn't budge...at all. That meant that when Andrew tugged the hat, it must have seriously pulled her hair. She didn't make a peep. Andrew decided to try once more, and again, the hat didn't move a single bit.

I was watching through the mirror to see her response, and I just busted out laughing at the expressionless look on her face. That got Andrew tickled so he started laughing. I just knew I was going to have to pull over to console her and rub on her injured head, but you know what she did. She laughed.

So instead of having a complete meltdown (as she usually does), we all ended up belly laughing. I was super proud of her, and we all had so much fun sharing laughter.

And though she doesn't realize it, her secret is out. Her head is not nearly as sensitive as she's been making it out to be all these years...all 2 of them!
