She Cleans Up Nice by Ree

DSC_4443Fortunately, Paige and I happened to be in Tulsa Thursday evening, the same day she received a last-minute invitation to a prom in a nearby town. So we went to Dillard’s and found her a dress within about 8 minutes, because Paige is nice and tall and oh, another thing: She’s sixteen. So pretty much everything fit her and looked great.

Precisely my experience any time I’m ever in a fitting room! Not.

Never mind that I’m never, ever in a fitting room. EVER. Shopping is not my boyfriend.

Anyway, Paige’s aunt Missy was so sweet. She invited Paige over so she and Allie, a family friend, could do her hair.

DSC_4440I was so impressed, especially when Allie told me they had simply pulled up a hair tutorial on Pinterest.

I’m a good mom when it comes to some things.

I’m a bad mom when it comes to doing hair.

 

 

DSC_4465As for her makeup, Paige wanted to do that herself, naturally! When I first saw it, I was a nagging mom and told her I thought her eyeliner wings might be a little too wingy…but she said she liked it and it’s a trend right now.

And besides that, I told myself, who the heck am I to give anyone eyeliner advice?

Ha.

 

 

DSC_4452Oh, Paigie Girl. I look at her sweet face and all I see is a nine-month old. She looked exactly like this! I don’t even see the eyeliner or the lipstick…

 

 

sharpeiI only see my second baby girl, who had rubber band wrists and the most precious little thighs any baby could have.

I love my second baby girl.
