I am turning into a smurf. I have my nieces here for the week while Kiki is in Savannah for a Chief's Conference. I love it when they are here but this time I was asked to dye their hair blue. This is right up my alley as an aunt and I agreed to do it. Of course, now I have to do half my kids' hair. too. Last night we spent a few hours bleaching out the girls' hair that was black before we could put the violet color on. First step went well. Second step is a semi-permanent color so I didn't put on the gloves thinking it would wash off. I was wrong. This is after I washed, no scrubbed is more accurate, for about 10 minutes.
Their hair is really cute but faded a lot so it will require another dose today after the pool. I didn't do their entire head, only a small portion of their hair at their neck and above their ears. It is really cute when they put it up in a pony tail, otherwise you can't even tell. My son now has a purple mohawk. It looks like he was rolling around in the blueberry bushes. This combined with his black painted finger and toe nails, he is beginning to look a bit rock n rollish. I figure it is summer and this is a way for him to get himself "fixed up" like the girls and still look like he is a boy so my DH doesn't "comment" to me me. I have drawn the line at make up in public but he is free to wear it around the house b/c the girls are. I told him later I would do it for him so he looked like he is part of a band. Dad is gonna die when he sees that.
I hope Patches and Ruthie are having a blast at their Nanny's house. I sure miss them. It's funny how empty the house can feel when one of my kids are gone. You would think I had so many I wouldn't notice.
