Now here's something that not everyone admits. I was a "bowhead" growing up. After my elementary school Dorothy Hamil cut, and then the scary "tail" in the very early 1980's (thankfully that trend passed before anyone ever took a picture of me), I wore my hair BIG and up in bows. Yes, I lived in Texas at the big surprise there. Even went off to college with the big bows. So you can imagine my delight when I realized that I can wrap my daughter's hair in bows now - AND LOOK HOW CUTE SHE IS!!!

And the best part is that she left it in and SMILED for me!!!! Can't ask for anything more. Now the boys, well, they never took kindly to the big bows (he he he...or hats for that matter), so I'm holding my breath that Lucy will grow to appreciate them. And yes, I know things have changed and that the styles are much more subtle these days. But if I ever find myself back in Texas with a child with the ability to not only wear a bow but pull it off with style - well, you bet she'll have a bow in her hair!

Too cute! Now I have to see if I can find all the bows I finally decided to give away...of course I would read this a week later.
