Sofia's First Haircut

Yes, my little princess finally got her first real haircut today! My friend K, who was a hairdresser in a past life, did a beautiful job:

Here's that final shot:


Too Cute!

Sofia had a terrific day at school today, but boy, it was a whirlwind day for me. After we dropped the boys at their school, I called the preschool to find out if the kids would be playing outside or not. The weather was wet but not raining (it poured last night). We stopped for coffee with our friends, and then the preschool called back to say they were NOT going out. So back to preschool. I walked her in, because I had to sign the IEP (they made the change I requested). Then Sofia waved and said "bye", and I was dismissed.

I had just enough time to meet R for a manicure, and get my passport photo taken (need to renew, it's been 10 years!). Then I had to pick up Micah (more in a moment), and then race back to the preschool to pick up Sofia.

Sofia came out with a HUGE smile on her face. Teacher was beaming, too. Said she had a terrific day. She just loves school!

I had to take both kids to the pediatrician. They both have these hacking dry coughs, and last night, after nebs, Sofia had a "not breathing" spell, where I had to steam up the bathroom until she calmed down (she'd fallen off the bed and was crying really hard). So off we went to Dr. H., who couldn't find much wrong other than possibly an ear infection for Sofia and eczema for Micah.

Dropped Micah back at school, and went to K's house for the haircut. Then a quick stop for food (I admit it, McDonald's Filet-o-Fish special! I do that once a year, really!), and off to my therapist. Sofia had still not fallen asleep (I thought she would, she was exhausted during the haircut), so she bopped around D's house while we talked. D has a cat (this is at her home office), and Sofia was just fascinated by it, especially when it went to sleep.

Then off to pick up the boys and take Sam to his therapist (Wednesday is Mind-Shrink day!). I took Micah and Sofia to the library while we waited, and Micah met a lovely little girl. They were playing very very nicely. When we finally left, he informed me that he really wanted a playdate with her, even though he didn't know her very well, and when we were back in the car, he whispered "she was really pretty, too. It's kind of embarrassing." SOOO CUTE!

Ok, picked up Sam, raced home. I let them watch TV while I rested a few minutes. E arrived, and I was off again. Drove Sam to shul, where he had a choir rehearsal (my friend drove him home). Then off to my college. Had to photocopy 4 very large articles (first I had to find all the books!) and have to dinner, all in one hour. But I made it. Whew. Then I had class, which was ok. I still have no idea what I am going to write about for my paper.

Sigh. Just a wicked-busy week (note for all of you not from around here. "Wicked" when used before an adjective serves to emphasize that adjective. It's a local "thing".)

Last call for Stamp orders - I'm placing the final order tomorrow morning!

I am glad you got through with the speech thing, and they understand that they need to make her use multiple words.

Sending great big ((HUGS!!))
