Today is “October Fun Day” at Madeline’s school, or some name like that where “it’s really like Halloween, but we just aren’t going to use the ‘H’ word”. Madeline’s class has been doing a project about their community over the past few weeks, so her teacher encouraged the class to dress up like a career in the community. Madeline went through a big list of careers and we thought about what we had costumes for (which wasn’t much). So we came up with something easy where we could be just a bit creative: a hairdresser. As soon as she decided, she got her little case and filled it with hairdressing things: clips, a wig, a brush, scissors, etc. She told me she wanted her hair in two buns with some hair falling down at her neck. So while she ate her cheerios this morning, I put her hair up. I got a little creative with the buns. And then, since all hairdressers are usually excessively beautiful with full make-up, I put on a bit of blush, eye shadow, tinted lip balm, and (gasp!) a little bit of mascara at the end of her eyelashes. This girl is just too beautiful!
