Hair help

Last weekend we had an impromptu playdate at Annie's.
For the kids and the adults.

While I was enjoying Annie's recap of it here,
I started to notice something.
No, not the creative use of ....well, I'm not really sure what that net is used for
But.
Addison's hair.
It's in need of a little bit of help.
Andy affectionately refers to it as her
"Dumb & Dumber Jeff Daniels" look.

I just don't know what to do with it anymore.
It's got that natural wave that is going to make the CHI her best friend later in life.
I seriously contemplated starting her on it now, but instead began to google
"cute pre-school girls hair"
Did you know there are blogs dedicated to this?
It was news to me.
But I found one that I couldn't stop reading here.

This girl is working with about 10 times the amount of hair my fine-haired child has

but today I decided that I didn't want Addison to look back on pictures of herself at 3
and wonder why her mommy didn't love her.
I KID.
I decided to start to put a little more effort into it.

I know we've got a long way to go....

but it wasn't too bad for our first...or second...or third try.

And I think she's definitely lost the Jeff Daniel's look.

Addison, your mommy loves you very much.


Just forgive me if Jeff Daniels sometimes wins out on hurried mornings.
