I have blond eyebrows!

It's 9am. I put Fifi down for her morning nap, she has been up for more then 3 hours. Jay and Lola are busy in their rooms reading books. I walk downstairs, turn on the Today show, walk to the computer and turn it on, go to the pantry and grab the pancake mix, walk to the kitchen and pull out what I need for breakfast. It is quiet in my house. I listen to the weather on TV and smile at the sunshine poring in through my window. Another perfect summer day! I mix and mix the pancake batter and plan out the days activities.

MOMMY ..... silence ... screaming ... more silence .... even more screaming from upstairs.

I open my junk drawer and grab the smelling salts (Lola has holding breath syndrome - and she is VERY clumsy). I am running upstairs, skipping every other step. What has she done now? Yesterday she fell off the couch watching morning TV. The day before that she slipped off the kitchen bench eating her lunch. Ahhh!!! I can't live like this ... she needs a helmet. How can I protect her from so many clumsy mishaps?

I walk into her pink room. Lola moved the bathroom step stool into her room and placed it directly in front of her vanity mirror. She is half way dressed intently staring into the mirror ... "I have BLOND eyebrows, MAMA! They match my hair."
New addition on my "To Do List" - remove all mirrors in the house.

Great Story. Why do blonds think they are so special?

She is SO smart :-) And still checking out her eyebrows, I assume!

At least she didn't fall off the stool, right? And what's so wrong with blonde eyebrows anyway? ; ) Guess I could tell you if mine still were but alas, they are not...

Thanks for linking up! : )

So glad she didn't hurt herself. They bring so much joy, don't they?

The signs were always there...Did you just ignore them or did you know this one was going to be too much?
