Since about the time she turned 2, Miss MiMi has wanted NOTHING to do with fixing up her hair … She would not tolerate any more big bows or headbands or pig-or-pony tails.
Yesterday, I was playing with her hair and asked her if she’d like “pig tails” – and got the usual, “Nope!” Later, as I was brushing her teeth and hair, I asked her again, as she looked at her face in the mirror … but this time I said, “Would you like to have BUNNY EARS?”
And her face lit us – and she said, “YES!” And so I put her hair up in pig-tails … ummmm, I mean BUNNY EARS, which she actually left alone for several hours.
We had some errands to run and so we stopped by to see a special friend of hers who further talked up the “bunny ears” – and thus, I do believe, we might be seeing them again!
With 2-almost-3-year-olds, I’m beginning to think it is all how you present the question! Sometimes anyway.
