My day started off with Mommy and Muffins day in Pre-K. It began with a nice snack of muffins and orange juice. The kids even cleaned up the mess for the Mommies. Next we made a wonderful craft together. It was a picture frame with the story "If you give a Mom a muffin."
Here is Gracie showing off her frame.
Next the kids did our make up. I had make up on when I got there (mostly because there is no way I would leave the house with out it....pathetic, I know!). So, you can't really tell what make up Grace put on me. Not too bad though!
Next, we were crowned by our sweeties. We then all congregated in the chapel where each of us moms had to walk down the isle while the teacher read thing that our children said about us :-)
When school was over......that's where the real fun began for me and my sweet girl. We made a pit stop for some yummy Wendy's. My girl loves her some Frosty!!
Our final destination was the brand new store at Polaris called Sweet & Sassy. It is a salon and spa for little girls. It is all decked out in hot pink, purple, princess stuff, and Hannah Montana on video! What more could a little girl ask for?
We began our Spa Day by getting a nice relaxing pedicure.
Bright Red polish with stickers of course!
The biggest event of our Spa day was getting Gracie's hair cut for the very first time in 4 years!!!!! This was a big step for Mommy. Thinking that the hair that they were cutting off is the hair that she was literally born with! Call me weird, but that's really sad for me. It was time though. It had gotten to the point of looking unhealthy and getting more and more difficult to take care of. That combined with summer coming really soon....a shorter doo was in order. We are going to be donating her hair to Wigs For Kids. We discussed it before we went and she totally understood and was excited about the concept of giving her hair so a sick little girl who had lost her own.
Ah, a nice shampoo and scalp massage!
What a sweetheart! Mommy's girl is looking so grown up!
Now it's time to pick out our nail polish. She chose a nice pale pink with flowers.
Ah, it's so nice to be pampered!
Let those beautiful nails dry.
O.K. girl, now it's time to strut your stuff on the runway!
Work It, Work It!!
Life gets so busy sometimes with work and taking care of your home and family. Sometimes we forget to take the time with our children on an individual basis to make them feel special. I had an absolute blast taking Grace and letting her get pampered. I'm not sure who smiled more....her having fun or Mommy watching her have fun?
