Beautiful Lengths

21 Sep

Anyone who has seen Ladybug, knows that she has the most beautiful hair. Hair that is usually adorned with adorable bows. This past summer that same beautiful hair, was becoming increasingly difficult to maintain.

Every single morning she would wake up and her hair would be in tangles. It didn’t matter how I braided, or put it up in the evening.  Ladybug has always been great with me doing her hair -she’s had nearly 7 years practice.  However, she was not happy about the untangling every morning. Even with a “special” brush.

It was time to make the cut.  I always knew her hair was long, especially when trying to braid it, so donating it was the obvious choice.  There are a several places in Canada that we can donate to. We choose Beautiful Lengths – Pantene. Beautiful Lengths is a partnership between Pantene® and the Canadian Cancer Society®. Donating as little as 8″ of hair will go towards real-hair wigs for women with cancer.

Because my biggest little man needed a haircut too, I opted for a very child friendly salon. Ragamuffins Children Salon was the perfect fit.

Our stylist was amazing at cutting Ladybugs hair.  She took her time, talked calmly, and was very attentive. So much so that I will definitely be making the drive back next time any of my munchkins need a haircut.





Happy 1st Day of School 2016 – Year 3

7 Sep

I just put my little Ladybug on the bus to head off to her first day of school.  She was very excited last night when I told her she was going to school the next day. I envisioned her waking up with a huge smile, kicking and laughing while getting ready. Then chatting all the way to get on the bus.   Ya – not so much. When a princess is used to sleeping in until 08:00 all summer, the 07:00 wake up is a huge adjustment.  I’m sure once she gets to school and sees her teacher and all her friends she will perk right up.  We are truly blessed to have a school that is beyond a perfect fit for Ladybug so close to us.

Heading off to school isn’t just an adjustment for Ladybug, my biggest little man was a bit upset that he couldn’t go to school on the bus this morning too.  He seemed to calm down once I told him we were heading to Nana and Papa’s farm instead. He is set to start Nursery School in the next couple months, which I know he will love.  Who am I kidding, I will too!  The countdown is ON!!!!

This past summer has been great! Very hot, and a little crazy with 3 little ones – but great.  I will update all of our exciting adventures and news in the coming months.
