Someday I’ll be a master barber, just like François

Maya, oh, Maya. We thought her days of trimming hair were past… Yesterday, after the kids had been quite for a stretch of time (unfortunately, this is usually a bad sign), I went in the bedroom to investigate. Among the boxes that had been snatched and cut up I saw a few locks of hair on the floor.

I quickly grabbed the hair and held it up to both Maya and Elijah to match by color. But they both have the same brownish hair, so I had to look closer. Well, I didn’t really have to, because I could see that Maya had trimmed Elijah’s fringe and lopped a few of her longer strands on one side.

The funny thing is we had planned on cutting Elijah’s hair just yesterday, but he fell asleep in the car and wouldn’t wake up. We ended up just putting him to bed. I guess Maya felt it was her job to pick up the slack and finish the job.

I must admit, it isn’t the worst cut she’s done. But Olya and I could do without the cardiac arrest each time we find hair clippings on the floor.

Anya funnies

Our little Anya is really growing up fast, but not just her body. Here are a few of the things Anya has said recently that make us laugh.

More lemon water, please
Lemon water = watermelon (great anagram; obviously working on her Scrabble skills)

Oh! I hear the sour cream truck!
What? Don’t you have one driving around your neighborhood playing music and selling treats to the kids?

Monsters, Inc.
Me: Anya, when did you get to be such a monster? (referring to her size next to Ivy)
Anya (smiling): Maya’s a monster, too.
