Make Waves!

It’s time to stop worrying about what other people think and just have fun!

More finger painting fun with this girlie, and although she’s not quite as loose as the last two I’m still quite happy with her.

I’m not quite sure whether she’s actually holding a picture with waves on it, or it’s on her dress.

Originally she was supposed to be holding it, but now I just don’t know…

I quite fancy her hairdo, which is a freestyle bun type of thing, slightly off to one side.

My own hair is kind of frizzy and never does what I want, so this is definitely a look I could achieve without much effort, but it probably wouldn’t look as good as hers and would flop in my eyes.

Speaking of frizzy hair – or feeling frazzled…  We’re into the third week off school here, and I think the kids are getting kind of fed up.

(remember we booked our week away at the wrong time & the kids scored an extra week off, so it’s crazy around here right now)

The bickering became unbearable late last week, and my wonderful mother invited them to stay at her place (separately) for a few days.

What a godsend. And no, you can’t have her – she’s mine.

It’s amazing how easy it is to care for just one child, when there’s no-one around to bicker with! I can’t believe I thought it was hard work having just the one – what planet was I living on???

(no offense to parents of singletons, it was hard work – but as a singleton myself the bickering was a revelation and a half)

Anyhoo, I need to go break up another fight, I’ll see you all around at paint party friday.
I’ll be the one with the frizzy freestyle hairdo.
