Oh My Gawd Sodagirl!
Say flat iron cheese.

September 28, 2006

Today was picture day at my daughter’s school. In preparation, I told her last night that I would get her up early to flat iron her hair in the morning. She readily agreed.

I woke her at 7am and she bounced out of bed like she had ants in her pants. Her hair is really silky and has a bit of a wave to it but it’s nothing like her mother’s giant mane of curls so it’s way easier to flat iron and takes only about 15 minutes.

She wore a pretty mauve and white dress with daisies on it and she looked like a little doll. We walked to school and got there a few minutes before the bell and she spotted a friend and classmate and asked to go wait with her in the line. I said sure, gave her a peck on the cheek but didn’t leave. I walked over to the wall and just watched and listened. Her friend started playing with Maddy’s hair and told her how beautiful it looked. Then the friend called over other girls from their class and wanted them to see how pretty Maddy looked in her finest and how straight and gorgeous her hair was.

Soon, there were 7 girls all gathered around my daughter, continually gushing over her and her gleaming hair and her dainty dress. It put a huge smile on my face. I wanted to run over to the girls and say, ‘hey, I’m her mom! I helped create her! She has my genes! I had a hand in making that beautiful creature!’. To which, I’m sure, they all would have looked at me and ran screaming to a teacher and ask that she call the police. Or psych ward.

I’ve never really thought my little girl looked like me. She definately has her father’s features. But today, just for a moment, when I saw her standing there, smiling and loving all of the attention but having enough maturity to be grateful and thanking her friends for the nice compliments, she reminded me of me. I guess it takes a princess grounded, level headed woman to make a princess.
