A quick “before.” Their hair was getting so long!
We were able to donate what we cut for cancer patients are were so excited about that.
And after! Nothing like a new do!
Quick pics I snapped with my Iphone on Easter Sunday. This was the dress Ad wore on TV and a few of you asked me where I bought it. The dresses are from Children’s Place. LOVE them! They came with a darling yellow belt but the belt sits too low on my girls right now because I bought them a little big so they can wear them next spring/summer too. So next year they will be rockin’ the belt. :)
The little dude got a haircut too! This is the only way we pull it off. We sit him on Kenny’s lap with a game or movie on the ipad. And even this set up only last a few minutes before he is ready to bolt! Luckily our hair dresser is FAST. :)
Last week was also monumental for us because Kole started pre-school! It is an amazing little school and I know it will be so good for him. Just a few hours in the morning, a great program plus he will receive additional speech therapy in school. I’m thrilled about that. But can I just say that I had a really emotional week because of it. The first day of school he was so excited to be there (we had visited the school together a few times so it was familiar) right up until it was time to say good-bye to mom. He cried. I was brave. I blew kisses and waved good-bye and told him I’d be right back. I held it together and drove away. I went to the grocery store and started wandering down the first isle in the store thinking of how for so many years I have thought about what it would be like to get groceries without dealing with a baby or chasing a busy toddler throughout the store. Nine years to be exact. I thought about how so many times I had dreamt of this very moment. How wonderful it would be. By isle 2 I had tears streaming down my cheeks and by isle 5 I was full on bawling. I just left the store. Didn’t even buy groceries. I went to my car and called to check on Kole. Of course he had only cried for a minute and was fine and having a ball. I on the other hand, cried on and off throughout the entire week. It is the end of an era for me and I guess I’m having a harder time with it than I thought I would. Even though it’s time and I’m ready for it. Even though I wouldn’t change it. It is still hard. Moms understand. :)
This week is our Spring Break and I am so happy to have all three of my kiddos home with me all day. I need that right now. If for nothing else but to remind me that I need them to all head right back to school the following week! ;)
Kole needs a little backpack for pre-school (how cute is that!?). They use it to send home notes about what he did each morning. I have narrowed it down to three and I’d love to hear your vote! Aside from haircuts, being on the news, and Kole starting pre-school we also had a stressful week with the new house and I am so OVER making decisions! So will you make this one for me? :)
I found these darling shark backpacks from Pottery Barn Kids that I can personalize with his name (so cool you can test it out on-line!).

This adorable monkey backpack I found on sale at Joss and Main. Too cute! I’m kind of leaning towards this one because Kole is a little monkey himself. :) What is your favorite? Anyone else have a crying jag last week?
