Another Fun Sunday
This past week was wonderful. A good mix of work and fun. I got to watch friends' kids for them, go on play dates, have a girls' night out with some of my good friends at the movies, have a good camp meeting, among running kids to activities. It kept me busy, and happy. Sunday morning was fun. Jeff had left early to speak at church with his Dad in Arkansas about 2 hours away. Everything was running smoothly. We were getting ourselves ready for church, had a nice breakfast, listened to church music to get us in the mood. It was wonderful. AND THEN, Jadyn came into the bathroom where I was getting ready to tell me that Brooke and Regan had dyed their hair. Turns out that it was just Regan. You see, Brooke's best friend Sarah had gotten her a fun hair coloring thing for Christmas where you can put nice color streaks in your hair. You know, nice colors, like bright blue, and green, and hot pink. Regan apparently got into it while no one was looking and did her own hair. She came in and told me she didn't have much in her hair. I had to lift her up into the mirror to show her that she had nice hot pink hair, big thick cream, all over her head. I mean, it was everywhere!!! I was so proud of myself, I didn't even yell! I just calmly took her church clothes off, and quickly put her in the tub to give her ANOTHER bath. The whole bathtub was full of hot pink water. After I got her taken care of, the kids and I noticed that I had hot pink cream in my hair, on my arm, bits in various places on my dress. It seemed as though it just jumped everywhere. Luckily, it wasn't too bad. I then was told that this cream was on the light beige carpet in Brooke's room, and all over her bathroom, and permanently on some white church shoes. It was wonderful. I decided not to even try to clean it up until after church in fear that we would be very late for church. Turns out, the clean up wasn't that bad. AND, we made it to church 10 minutes early! Aren't you amazed! Say yes. I know, I know. I am too. Anyway, I am just kicking myself because I didn't get a picture. At the time, I was more worried about making it to church. It would have been great for the blog. Next time we have an incident, I'll try to be more focused on the bigger picture....the Blog! HA HA!
