My boys seem to have a favorite Christmas song this year and I love it!
“It’s Called Christmas With a Capital “C”
Toward the end of the song, the guy says something about how Christianity is the religious heritage of our country and if you don’t like it, “PUT A HELMET ON! IT’S MY COUNTRY TOO!”
So I laughed out loud when I was leaving the grocery store this morning and I heard Owen say, in his sweet little two year old voice,
“It’s MY country too!”
…last night, Josh took our three boys to my in-laws’ to visit Josh’s grandma who is in town through Christmas. She hasn’t seen the boys in over a year. I decided I didn’t want to risk the stress of uncertain behaviour from Biggest Brother, so I stayed home with them. It was a good decision. Josh and the boys had a nice quiet evening at Mimi’s and I had a nice, uneventful evening at the house with ‘our other three’.
I decided to color my hair last night after I put Baby Girl in bed. My plan was to color my hair darker than usual and then pull it through a cap and highlight it. I know, I’m so cheap. I’ve only had my hair colored ‘professionally’ twice in my life and it was discounted both times. It’s just TOO expensive. Well, the first color came out nicely, but as I suspected, it was pretty dark. Too dark to leave it by itself, with no highlights. So I opened up the highlight kit to get started. UNFORTUNATELY, someone had already STOLEN the cap out of the box!
Josh is not a fan of the dark-haired me. I am a blonde and he prefers it that way. 🙂 My plan was to wait until this morning and I’d run to the store and get a new kit with a pull-through cap. Go figure, Josh didn’t even notice that I’d colored my hair TWO LEVELS darker than my natural color. I had it pulled back in a pony tail. So when I got back from the store with the highlighting kit, I said, “Did you even notice that I colored my hair??”
He looked over at me and said,
“HOLY COW! IT’S DARK!”
Gee, thanks for noticing honey.
I’m looking forward to the final outcome. I may even wax my eyebrows today. A nice Saturday of cleaning and grooming and pampering….between diaper changes, bickering, and time-outs.
Have a marvelous Saturday!!
