So, today we had the choice of going to the Boxcar Derby presented by Boy Scouts of America or going to the salon so mommy could get a much needed relaxer. What did I pick? We went to the salon and I got my hair did.
Andrew was bummed for a little bit, but I reminded him that dad was out of town and he's never gone in the years past. So we loaded up Sadie and Andrew's boxcar sat on the dining room table.
I know, I know. How lame can a mom get? You just don't understand, people. I hadn't had a relaxer since the eve of New Year's Eve! My hair was going back to it's roots! As a young girl without a relaxer, I was a brush-breaker! I was beyond tender-headed and I was on the verge of shaving off all my hair! Please trust me when I say that my head is a funny shape and without the long locks to counter-balance, I wouldn't have any friends. . . .
After we came home and Aiden and I took a nap, we all went outside and played together. We kicked balls and ran around the driveway. We went to DollarTree and bought some scented bubbles and a cool bubble wand and we were in bubble heaven for almost 45 minutes!
I think I did a fine job of finding a balance between super mom and slacker mom. I'm just mom...
