At the splash park on a warm summer day, Maggie is walking around, looking concerned, fingers in her mouth.
For about a year, Maggie has been growing her hair out. She wanted it to be long like Rapunzel's, or flowing like a mermaid when in the bath. So I was quite surprised this week when she said, "Remember that time in China that I cut my hair short and surprised everyone at school? I want to do that again!" After waiting it out for a few days to be sure, I pulled out my scissors and re-watched youtube videos on cutting little girls hair and went for it.
Astrid from How to Train Your Dragon visited us today.
It is a good thing too, because we needed her to fight the fierce black dragon that flew around our living room (while trying to fold laundry).
***I can't seem to find a picture of the finished costume. She added string tied around her arms in a criss-crrossing fashion, and used various play kitchen tools, taped to her for knee and shoulder pads.
