The Announcement

After careful, thoughtful consideration it is with a heavy heart and clear mind that I would like to formally announce that I have decided to grow out my bangs.

I realize this might come as quite a shock to many of you, but it feels right.  After watching Michelle Obama and Taylor Swift carry their perfectly trimmed bangs around the world, I just feel I can no longer engage in the bang world of now. 

I can't decide if I'm too cool, or not cool enough, or mostly just fearful of a sweaty Texas summer with lots of delicate hair covering my forehead looking gross for the next six months, but it's time for them to go.

Please have patience with me during this difficult and surely awkward growing out process.


Did you think I was going to announce that I was formally addicted to meth, or drinking before I start to cook dinner now, in order to deal with Cole?  He's actually been much more him since I last wrote.  He's sleeping in Stella's extra bed most nights now and actually getting sleep, which keeps him sane.

Go figure.

Other news?

These two have been thick as thieves.

I don't really know why thieves are thick. Surely there is a better, sweeter analogy for inseparable siblings.  Insert that analogy here.

These two have been thick as thieves when one decides they would like to confess and the other wants to kill them.

That analogy totally works.  I'm honestly surprised Aiden isn't pushing Cole in to this giant hole in this photo.  They are fighting over everything these days.  There was an all out screaming, crying, episode in the car last week about whether or not Cole saw a rainbow colored car while we were driving.

Spoiler: There actually was a rainbow car. Cole was right. Aiden refuses to concede that it is even possible.

This guy.

Is so annoyed I posted this photo on Facebook that I felt it was important to put it on my blog too.

Stella is still bananas.

And took 49 pictures of this on my phone yesterday.

See...the bang thing does seem like big news after that last photo, right?

Growing out the bangs IS big news. It totally rocked my world at 5:30 this morning when I saw your post in my email.

After careful thought and consideration I've decided to support you in your decision to grow out your bangs. This was a difficult choice because I'm currently trying to get my daughter's bangs to grow out and the process has been painful for all of us. However, I feel it's better in the long run and I know it will be for you as well. Best of luck and may you have plenty of wine...and headbands, I suggest you invest in headbands.

Also, why is your husband upset you posted that picture of him? I don't want to get all up in your husband but let's just say that I think that picture is very flattering and he should not be upset. Unless he's "girl upset" where he really likes that you posted it but has to pretend he doesn't just to seem modest, but secretly he's overjoyed. If that's why he's "upset" then that's ok.

You crack me up. Good luck growing out your bangs. Do you think he actual process will be easier or harder than the decision? ;-)

Haha!! I seriously laughed out loud at the first line. You're so funny.

Well, we support your decision. I mean, if you have put the time necessary into thinking of a decision like this, then I will trust you made the right choice.
My hubs? Doesn't exist on FB. My friends don't really believe he exists, other than for the fact I don't make enough money to spend like I do, so he must.
