Crazy Hair Day


Tomorrow is Crazy Hair Day at Molly's school. She is not completely convinced that she wants to participate in this event, but regardless the girls decided to play "Hair Salon" in the toy room. I let them be. I let them get out ALL the hair brushes. I let them get out ALL the hair pretties. I even let them get out the squirt bottle. I was promised that they would not try and tie ANYTHING, hair or otherwise. Well, these Dora's were their victims. There were a few other victims, but they must have disappeared into Witness Protection somewhere. Overall they did a pretty good job and I realized something new in the process:
#1- They ARE capable of brushing their own hair much better than they claim.
#2- We have way too many Dora's around here, considering this isn't the half of them!
Wish me luck coming up with a crazy hairdo for tomorrow, I'll be sure to post some pics...if she decided to participate that is. Have a good one.

They did a good job. My kids love Dora too.

Amy said...

Umm, is one of the Dora's missing her legs?
Somehow I missed that episode.

Kellan said...

Cute post and good luck coming up with a funky hairdo - I'm sure you'll do great and I want to see pictures. My kids have these crazy hair days too - they are CRAZY! Take care - Kellan

cute! be glad that they did it to the doras and not you!

girlymom said...

Dora's not missing her leg's (very observant though)they are all posing on the footstool and she kept falling over, so the girls shoved her legs through the hole for the handle! That would be an interesting Dora episode though- naughty Swiper- don't swipe Dora's legs!!

I have a stat tracker working it's magic behind my blog and it tells me where people are coming from and what they are searching for when they find my blog.

It's a bit distrubing at times but very informative! :-)

Oh, fun! I remember doing stuff like that in school. I hope she decided to do it. I wanna see the silly pics.

Cecily R said...

You are a nice mom because

a)You let your girls get out all the hair pretties

b)You let your girls get out the spray bottle

c)You let your girls not only watch Dora, you also buy them Dora dolls.

I think I can handle a and b, but honestly, Dora makes my ears bleed. That girl's voice makes me insane. Gracie can watch her only on the TV downstairs...cuz I'm mean like that. :)

Stacie said...

I hope she plays along, crazy hair day is AWESOME. I have thought of asking my bosses if we can bring this kind of enthusiasm to the work place....they haven't answered yet. ;)

Amy said...

Hi, I linked here through your comment on another site. Immediately I had to read because I too am a mom of four girls! Not as close in age as yours, wow, bless you! But it is fun, fun times! Your girls are precious and I would love to check back on your adventures.

krissy said...

Dora sorta looks like the flying nun on crack! Those big eyes have always freaked me out. I am so happy my 10yr old is out of the Dora stage!

You rightfully deserve to be on my blog because you are cool like that! Besides, I need some advice when raging pre-teen hormones are causing distress in my life!!!

Can't wait to see pics of the funny "do" if she decides to participate!!

Thank you so much for coming to my blog, no really, thank you!!!

krissy said...

BTW....your kids are really, really pretty. There is alot of blond in your house!!

Zoe said...

oh my boys and ava love to do my hair. it's so not pretty!!!

OHmommy said...

Oh. I probably won't be able to get a wink of sleep the night before crazy hair day. I would be thinking of all the styles.

Can't wait to see what you think up. Post pictures soon!

Karen said...

I love crazy hair day better than the kids did. LOL

I used all the hairbands and put daughter's hair up in a bazillion little "squirts" all over her head.

I used more gel than the boy had hair and spiked it royally, then painted it blue.

Have fun!

I am very happy that the Dora's are on their way out of our house. Ms. Firecracker collected them for a while and asked everybody she knew for one. They happily obliged. She wasn't all that much of a fan of Dora. She just wanted to collect something like her older brother and sister. It was a well/ill-timed commercial. LOL
Hope crazy hair day is fun.

Kami said...

Crazy hair day sounds like great fun. As a kid I spent hours doing my doll's hair. You would think I would be more proficient at doing my own based on the hours I spent but no, not really.

Imagine how bad I would have been!

Mary said...

Crazy Hair Day........how fun!! I hope she does it! And be sure to share pictures of her "do" :)
(I so would have been all over a day like this when I was little! Heck, I'd be all over it now if work had a day like that!!)

Don Mills Diva said...

I hope you have some pics tomorrow - we used to have Crazy Hair Day at work and it was a hoot!

Angela said...

Crazy hair is fun.
When my son had longer hair I liked puting it in pig tails.

Mari said...

My girls always enjoyed crazy hair day. I think yours did a pretty good job on Dora!

utmomof5 said...

We love crazy hair day at school. My kids wear uniforms so anything that they can do to be creative thay jump at the chance. One of my boys even talked me into a mohawk for a day and the year before we shaved his head completly bald. I mean we got the bic razor out with the shaving cream!! I had to take pictures! Have fun in the morning!

MamaGeek said...

Oooooh I can't wait to see what you come up with. What a fun idea!!

Susan said...

I am visitng for the first time and found you from Kellan.

I can so relate. I have 6 daughters 11,9,7,5,3,and 20 months. I was thinking how your house sounds like mine hair bows, squirt bottles, and Dora dolls.

Your Christmas picture is beautiful and reminds me of ours I always make a big deal on the holidays.

I will be visiting again.

me said...

OMG- I have 6 daughters, too. I am off now, to check out that previous responder. loving your blog, Do you find yourself buying hair rubberbands every time you go to the store? And how many loads of pink laundry do you do each week? Aren't girls great?

jennwa said...

I can not wait to see the crazy hair pics.

Lisa said...

My girls love to do MY hair. Sometimes after a long day it's relaxing to let them mess with my hair - although I usually end up with 5 hairbows!!!

Valarie said...

You have a house full of girls....there is no such things as TOO mnay Doras. They all look beautiful. hehe

PinksandBluesGirls said...

Oh that is awesome!! Crazy hair day!! We used to have that wen I was in school.. I would do pig tails and braids all over my head. Ahh... very flattering, huh!? Your girls are beautiful... !!

Maria said...

Oh please show some pictures! I'd love to see them.

kimmy said...

My daughter never lets me put her hair up, but when she does she wants pig tails. 5 of them to be exact!

Good luck!
