I love going for a haircut every 7 weeks. It's a great salon, I love my stylist, and the leisurely head massages are amazing; usually, it's a great way to get some time alone (and by that I mean kid-free). Unfortunately, when you have to reschedule your weekend appointment and take a 3 year old with you on a Thursday morning, the relaxation factor goes right out the window. Rory behaved very well and charmed everyone, but answering a dozen questions a minute takes a bit of the fun out of the experience. Although the "you look gorgeous, mommy" and "wow! let me look at you!" go a long way towards making up for it.

We have our first parent/teacher conference at Camden's school this afternoon so he's out of school this morning. I'm hoping for a good day, although I would not have chosen to be stuck inside but it's pouring down rain so we don't have much of a choice.

Here are a two kid tidbits from the week:
  • Right before he took a bite of his chicken quesadilla last night, Camden said, "I can just smell all the goodness in there."
  • Rory and I were getting ready to call my mom on the phone and as I lifted the phone to dial, Rory held up one finger and said, "hang on, I've got to take this," and picked up her own play phone and proceeded to talk away.

Hi Melissa

I am a missionary in Japan and found your blog through Becky's blog and have really enjoyed your pictures and stories of your kids. They are adorable! I know this is a totally random question but I have to ask...where do you get your hair cut? It always looks great! I have never been able to find a place here that can cut my hair in a way that I like. I'm going home to TN for Christmas and would love to find a good salon that could give me a cut that doesn't make me look like a drowned rat. Thanks and hope you have a great day!
