Career Day: Hairdresser

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!

    ha, cute! (weird that there’s no Hallowe’en, though. sigh.)

  4. Yeah, the Halloween thing. I wish they’d either have it or not. Don’t water it down by changing the name. Madeline was a bit disappointed today when there were no treats handed out. Luke came home from preschool with a bag of stuff and a red light for trick or treating from the Manitoba gov’t or something. Not sure why the elementary school didn’t get them…

    Chris knew exactly whose little girl that was, without knowing I’d visited your blog. Amazing how she’s growing into her mum’s looks.
