Erin's knocking out the milestones
Two recent advances in Erin's life this week.
1. (Warning to the 16-year-old Erin. Sorry Kiddo. I know this is probably mortifying for you but I had to share.) Erin went to preschool 3 days this week in BIG GIRL UNDERPANTS!!!! Woot. No accidents (yet).
2. Erin had her first haircut today. For those of you in the know, Erin is very protective of her scalp. She loathes the hair combing process and the hair washing procedures are so traumatic (for us) that it rarely occurs. So it was with great apprehension and much delay that we took her to get her first ever haircut. But the nappies were out of control.
She did great! Didn't even whimper. Thanks to the amazing haircutter Erin was kept entertained the entire time and even got primped up to a super-girly extreme, including pigtails, bows, earrings*, necklace, glitter in the hair, a balloon, and a lollipop. The post-cut proceedings took longer than the actual haircut. Ms. Karen leaves no distraction/reward avenue unexplored.
Again, Erin looks, to her parents, that she is 2 1/2, going on 18.
* They were fake stick-on earrings. The ear piercing privilege is solemnly reserved for Auntie Dr. Tina.
