The All-About-Me Hat: Chopped the Mop, 5 Inches

It’s a strange thing being a mom. You come last. You have big plans for your blog. Like, taking great photos of the new hairstyle you just spent all morning creating. And then … you remember, you come last. Your blog is even farther in the pecking order.

This morning, I came home from the salon to find Kelsey bug teething – hardcore. She’s been tugging at her left ear and screaming when I lie her down to change her diaper. I needed to take her to the doctor – that was a no brainer. As we’re driving to the doctor. It begins to pour rain.

My hair (fresh with a new set of ‘swoop’ bangs) needs a bobby pin. And a bobby pin STAT. I pin-up my new swoop and think – there go my plans for a photo. But, nevermind that – I have a baby to get to the doctor. I wrap Kelsey in my scarf (because no one owns an umbrella where I live) and we enter the doctor’s office.

“She’s happy and well”, says the doctor. No ear infection, no temperature, no problem. I sigh with a big relief and we’re out the door.
..
Flash forward six hours and we’ve played where-did-you-hide-mommy’s-cell-phone, read a book, climbed the stairs, watched the rain, snuggled on the couch, sat on the cat, ate dinner, gone from toy to toy and sang “twinkle, twinkle little star” until mommy was blue in the face..

.
And here we are – late at night and still no picture. So, here it goes nothing.
.
I took a photo of myself at the end of this eventful day. Keep in mind: I’m not a model. I’m not a photographer. I am an incredibly busy mom who just got her hair styled only to pull it back in a pony tail. I cut 5 inches off and scored bangs. It’s a New Year, a new look – and I’ll have better photos soon!

Thanks for listening and for the support as I lost my long locks. Kind of.
