Mommy Daughter Dates

A few weeks ago I was feeling the need to go out. I just needed to be out of the house and have a change of pace. I however was accepting the fact that it wouldn't happen. We were still in the process of painting the house, and there was a lot that needed to be done at home. But my awesome, wonderful husband told me to go and have some fun so I decided to make it a date with my girls.

As soon as I asked Kiera if she wanted to go on a date with mommy she lit up! She was so excited. Without any questions her shoes were on and she was in the car. She was ready to go! I love mommy daughter dates. The last one we went on was a trip to the movies to see Toy Story 3. To this day Kiera still talks about it.

We went to Burger King and Kiera got to choose whatever she wanted AND got an ice cream cone afterwards. We don't frequent Burger King often and if we do it is only through the drive thru. So when we went inside Kiera was introduced to the fabulous Burger King Kids crowns (see above picture). And being the thoughtful child she is asked the cashier if she could take an extra one home for her brother. So cute.

After Dinner we went across the street to the hair salon. This was Kiera's first experience at a salon as well. I am usually the one cutting her hair, but this time was special.

She talked the entire time asking questions and commenting on EVERYTHING! The hairdresser was a trooper. She was so patient with her and played along. Double thumbs up! My favorite part was watching her get her hair washed in the sink. Kiera thought that was the silliest thing ever. And she was sure to tell the hairdresser "not hot, not hot" over and over.

It was sad to see her hair go. I have babied her hair since she was born. But she is growing up whether I like it or not. I can't believe she is starting Kindergarten in just a couple weeks!
Here's the BEFORE

And the AFTER
You can't really tell from the picture but she cut A TON off. Probably a good 8 inches. This was what the floor looked like when all was said and done. !!!! I can't believe it. Sort of makes me sad but at the same time happy for her. Hair time will take a lot less brushing now too.

Happy Little Girl

After Kiera was done I got my hair chopped off too. We were there til almost closing so we got the whole salon to ourselves. Poor Emma was getting very fussy just as soon as my hair was washed.  I didn't think I was going to be able to have mine done and thought I should give up and walk out; but the other hairdresser was such a sweet lady and held her for me AND entertained Kiera for my entire cut! They were the best two people ever! I probably got 7-8 inches off as well. Sorry there is no picture, the one Kiera took of me turned out really blurry.
