Today Emily wanted me to do Wendy's hair like this:

Emily specified that she wanted it like Jasmine's hair (from Aladin), but pigtails. While doing Wendy's hair I gained appreciation for all the effort my mother put into doing my hair every morning before school. I wore pigtails (sometimes with braids) everyday. It's not easy getting the part just right and the hair flat on the head. Which is why I think I'm fine with the girls taking care of doing their own hair every morning which usually looks something like this:

Speaking of appreciation, tonight I was folding the girls load of laundry in their room. With 4 girls, it's quite a mountain of clothing, especially since many days they love to do a wardrobe change. My husband came in the room and sat down for a moment while he got Jason ready for bed. I looked at him and caught him glance at the clothes scattered about the floor. It was a look that said, "Holy freak, that's a lot of clothes and I'm glad I'm not the one who has to fold and put them away!" The expression on his face was the golden moment of my day. He didn't have to say anything, I could tell he appreciated my laundry efforts.
