Lily-Ann is a lake girl. She loves being out swimming in the water, tromping through the bush, cooking on the fire, and exploring through the trees. This does not work well with long hair. So today, it was time to for a cut. Last year I did it all one length, just a cute little bob. This year I layered it. So while it looks about the same length as last time, it’s actually a fair bit shorter. The longest layer is the same length as her last cut, but the top layers are considerably shorter. Perfect for roughing it. No amount of sand, smoke, dirt, or tree bits will make this cut unmanageable. 🙂
So, today’s picture shows off her new “do”. But it also highlights one of her back yard activities. One we can’t quite figure out… but which reminds me of a make-shift pedicure. LOL She covers her feet in wet sand, then climbs into the pool to wash them off. Over, and over, and over again. LMAO But she does like to have an audience for this procedure. Somehow it’s just not as fun when there is no one there to witness the demonstration. Silly kid.
First a bit of background.
When the wee girlie was a week and a day shy of her first birthday I gave her a pedicure – her first pedicure. Her perfect little pink toes with the prettiest metallic pink polish (my favorite polish). I then did mine to match. Our matching “piggies” just begged to be captured, so I happily obliged. What resulted is one of my favorite photographs of my daughter and I… and all that’s in it is our toes.
Today, Lily-Ann asked to do her own toenails – for the first time. She picked the polish, and covered her freshly bathed piggies in cotton candy pink. She then proceeded to marinate my toes in a metallic blue. Again… our piggies begged to be captured. THAT is today’s photograph.
