My Self-Involved, Too Busy to Write Anything Significant Post

I got a haircut yesterday. It was time. Luckily, I have a lady who cuts our hair, doesn't charge much, and doesn't require appointments. I wake up one day and decide I want a haircut, so it isn't something I can usually plan! I tend to flare my nostrils when I'm mad and look like a bull, or my Aunt Earlene! It was time to get bangs again, since I now notice the little lines creeping across my forehead more than not. Stupid, stupid aging! I think that, as my face ages, my bangs will get longer and darker to conceal it. I'm sure to look all 'Emo' before long...

3YO was taking pictures of me, and decided to give her my best 'Home Alone face.' It made her laugh, so that's all that really matters I guess.

NO...I was SOOO not trying to look sexy here. I was just shaking my hair up (when your hair gets a significant cut, it's fun!) and I think I might have even been about to sneeze when 3YO took this picture. Once again, this one made her laugh too. Please don't email with offers for internet dating. Not interested. I'm not interested in making my penis larger either, but those emails still find me. Just today, I've won the European Lottery, twice, the Irish Lottery, inherited something from some guy in Geneva, and can get a great deal on a Gevalia coffee maker.

3YO got a new dress from a really good friend of mine. She looooves this dress and she would wear it every day if she could. But eventually, both she and the dress need to part so that they can get clean. This upsets her.

And....I saved the best for last. 3YO took a picture that is pretty cool to me. If you don't have kids, you might not know what this is. This is the inside of one of those giant cartons of Goldfish Crackers. Completely untouched and not at all cropped. How she ever thought to take a shot like this is beyond me!
Well, that's about it. I worked in 6YO's class from 8:30 to 10:00 this morning. Then, I had to be back there at 11:30 for a class party...which pretty much lasted the rest of the day! I. Am. Beat. I think I spent more than five hours in a classroom full of 5 and 6-year-olds all hopped up on candy and adrenaline.
Memories that will last forever. No matter how hard we try to block them out!

Looooooooooooooove the dress on her, and the fact that she won't take it off, my god. It's just worth it for that effect alone. ;)

Love the haircut! Before I even read the first line (the one that says you got your hair cut) I thought to my self that you had cut it!) Love the bangs! The faces are wonderful!

3yo is as cute as ever in that dress!

The goldfish shot is awesome. You need to frame it!
