Thought I'd take a rest from packing up my house and share how awesome my job is--being a mom. Yesterday after the boys were at preschool and kindergarten, I took Macy with me to the salon to get my haircut fixed. (It turned out good--more fun with some layers, etc.) She is awesome to take anywhere and always so good. She just sat in one of the other captain chairs and looked at her book and watched my stylist. When we got home, I planted myself on some pillows on the carpet in front of the clean laundry pile and invited her to help me fold the clothes (her favorite job.) She helped for a minute, then she disappeared and came back with my hairbrush. For the next half hour or so she stood behind me and brushed my hair and pretended to be the stylist, telling me that I was a beautiful princess with beautiful "new" hair, and that she was getting me ready for my date with Prince Mark.
Seriously folks, does it get any better than that? Scalp massage and hilarious affirmations while you work? For free? Perfect afternoon.
