Wow, so I was involved in a meltdown of epic proportions that I was not aware would happen and it centered around piggy-tails. Our baby girl is three-years old and is quite opinionated now as to her preferences for her hairstyle.
She very much likes her little hair (bangs) and she likes her long hair; however, her long hair has a tendency to fall straight down the front of her face so we have had to pull her hair out of her face with a little side pony-tail.
That little side pony-tail has since turned into a side braid because she has advised that she does not like pony-tails. (No idea why) So, her daily hairstyle is a quick brush, identify the short hair, separate it from the long hair that needs to be braided and then she decides on a color for the holder.
Just to test the “I don’t like pony-tails” statement, we have sneakily tried to pull her hair up while she was distracted by a show and holy moly, as soon as she felt a pony-tail coming on she flipped out.
So, “I hate pony-tails” is real. Good to know.
Well, recently, husband and I were talking about how adorable piggy tails were on our girl child so I had the brilliant idea of trying them out on baby girl. Considering how similar the tugging feels on her head, she was unaware of the tom-foolery that was happening atop her little crown and she allowed me to put the cutest little piggy-tails in her hair.
She was precious! A sight to behold in all of her adorableness!
And then it happened…she went to the bathroom to see why everyone was making a fuss about how cute she looked. For all she knew, she was sporting a basic side-braid and ‘what was the big deal about the hairstyle I wear literally every single day’ (I’m obviously paraphrasing, here).
She. Lost. Her. Mind.
I had to undo the piggy-tails immediately, AND let her decide on a color for the new holder for the braid I was about to do in her hair. Because on top of me violating her no “piggy-tails” rule, which we were just made aware of this morning, I used the wrong color holder.
The nerve of me.
