Kinlee likes to give things names. Events. Situations. Lots of things.
If we go to lunch, it’s Mommy Kinlee Lunch.
If Braska’s with us, it’s a Mommy Girls Lunch.
When she wants to sit on my lap for a while, she asks for a Mommy Kinlee Moment.
If Daddy takes her to Lowe’s, it’s a Daddy Kinlee Trip.
When we went to Wal Mart this morning, it was an All Family Trip.
And the list goes on…
Today was Mommy Kinlee Salon Day.
I was going to get my hair done, and she came along because she wanted a cut for herself, too.
I got to go first because she can get her haircut done during my processing. So she waited patiently (with Netflix on her Nabi, of course) in the chair next to mine.
When it was her turn, she was all smiles. (Which is nice. We tend to see A LOT of attitude lately, more than smiles.)
My big-girl 4-year-old bug. My kindergartener. Hard to believe.
She is like a little pro when she’s in there. Loves it. She really likes the whole process, except the shampooing. The super chic sinks there aren’t the most comfy for her, so she prefers just a spray to wet it down. And she knows. She’ll speak up and let you know what’s supposed to happen.
She gets very serious about watching everything that Jessica is doing, but she does sometimes crack a smile.
Her couple inches of trim was pretty uneventful, but the other 90 minutes when she was just waiting for me was the real challenge. And she did great, not the recently-typical whining, none of the rolling eyes and attitude-laden tone. She was pleased to do her Fooz Kids Math or English on the Nabi or watch Martha Speaks.
It was a pretty nice outing. And that’s a good thing. So since it’s not always the way things go, I wanted to document it. So I can look back next time I get the growl and scoff along with the “Oh my goodness, Mom. That is not at all what I want to do. Can we talk about other options?”
No joke. Verbatim quote.
I’m glad to have these little peeks at the fun 4-year-old days.
