Not Me Monday!

Are you feeling guilty for not changing your children's bedsheets for weeks on end? Feel trashy taking your trash to the curb with no bra on? Overcome with embarrassment after your child wets his pants in public? We'll don't be! Not Me! Monday was born out of my desire to admit some of my imperfections and reveal a few moments I'd rather forget. You may find it therapeutic to join in and do the same thing!

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

So. I'm out of my funk and ready to return to blogging! One thing that you totally missed in my blogging absence is, I finally did it. I finally chopped Brynnie's hair. I asked you in this post if I should cut Brynnie's lovely mullet off. The hubs did not want me to and I was torn between not wanting to cut my baby's hair and not wanting her to have a mullet anymore. Well grandma came in to town and offered to help us out and take her to one of those places that specializes in cutting just kids' hair. Yea! I thought for sure Brynn would be kind of a handful and afraid of the whole hair cutting situation but she was very well behaved and excited about everything, especially watching Dora while it happened! So here's where my Not Me Monday comes in. I, the photographing crazy mommy, forgot my camera! I know, terrible huh? My precious baby gets her first hair cut and I failed to properly documented it. It was an impromptu trip so I was not able to plan accordingly. I always keep my point and shoot camera in my diaper bag for when having the big camera is not ideal. But even that failed me as I went to turn it on and the battery was dead! So unfortunately the whole thing is remembered through camera phone pics, gasp! I know, I have no words. So here are some pics!

Here's a before pic and Brynn's unruly mullet
just looked messy and its WAY longer than the hair in the front
Now for camera phone pics, here's the before shot (sorry her hair was in pig tails), if you look closely on the left you can see the lovely evidence of her mullet
Sat so nice and still like such a big girl *tear*

Not sure what to think about the whole hair dryer thing

Look at how precious!! Even sweet little layers!
She would not for the life of me look at me so I could get a pic of her looking
She was very excited about her lollipop
Afterwards the girls played in the kids area at the mall and it was like this haircut had given her new personality. She was running around with all sorts of energy, swishing her hair, and just down right giggly. It was too funny. I took some nicer shots when we got home.

My little one looks like such a little lady now.*again, tear* : )

Love the haricut! It's so funny, the girl cutting Brynn's hair is a friend of the family! Her name is Kelly and she went to school with my sister, Meghan.
