Hairdresser on the run

My baby hates to get her hair brushed. H.A.T.E.S. it.

So usually, when it’s time to brush her hair, now that she can run, she does. She gets up and starts toddling away as fast as she can once she sees that brush in my hand. So, in order to brush her hair everyday, I have to run right along with her and brush as we run.

Yesterday, I just couldn’t stop…and this was the darling result:

Yes, those pigtails were done on the run, and as long as we kept “running,” she didn’t seem to mind!

I don’t think pigtails have ever failed to melt this Papa Bear’s heart. :)

    Cute!!! That makes me happy! Do you remember when Dad used to do my pigtails before school? Sometimes they would be soooo tight I felt like I had a face lift! Those were the days!

    That is the cutest thing I’ve seen all day! :) When I have girls, they’re going to have to come to Aunt Ann to get their hair done, or it’ll just end up cropped short like mine or in a tomboy pony-tail. Dad can braid better than me… *hangs head in shame…*
