As we walked into church on Sunday, my friend Carmen said, “Wow. You should really get that girl some tap dancing lessons.” And she’s right, because then not only could I publish her childhood details online but I could possibly make some dough by selling her into showbiz.
And regardless of the Lohan-esque horrors that brings to mind, I think she would be pretty darn cute tapping it away on the silver screen as her curls bounced fiercely up and down. She doesn’t have dimples, but I’m sure there’s some sort of surgery for that.
If you know Laylee at all, you can guess that she was quite pleased with this latest hair care masterpiece. When I suggested we put in her hearing aids before leaving the house, she balked, “I don’t want to mess up my curls.”
“Medical devices before beauty.” That’s what I always say. Some people attribute that quote to Confucius or Coco Chanel but I’m pretty sure I said it first.
When we got home from church, she created this self portrait.
I think it’s pretty good but in my opinion, she didn’t spend nearly enough time shading her upper lip.
I love that self portrait. It’s definitely one to hang on to – amazing!
As soon as I saw her on Sunday I thought, “Shirley Temple!” She looked so cute!

She put dimples on her own self-portrait, so maybe that surgery will not be so hard to talk her into?

Oh my goodness. Those curls are adorable! And that self-portrait shows real promise. I think a few Picasso’s look strikingly similar 🙂

Simply adorable. Love the curls. Love the self portrait. Love how only 2 strands of her hair are curly in the self portrait. She makes me smile. Good kid raisin’ mom.
Definitely more upper lip shading. Perhaps her lips hurt so bad, that she couldn’t think straight. 🙂
What a great self-portrait. I absolutely love the eyes.
And that hair. Gorgeous.

This totally looks like all my childhood Sunday photos. I love it. And, oh my goodness, that self-portrait is FANTASTIC.
Have a great Thanksgiving.
Those curls are amazing… So cute! And I love her self-portrait.
That kid is cute enough to keep forever! I love her artistic endeavors and her self-confidence and how darling she is at all times. We are missing you dearly this Thanksgiving and hope you are having a WONDERFUL time.
We just watched Napoleon Dynamite last night. I totally get the reference.

I don’t know how to do that to my kid’s hair. I am a bad bad mom.
that self-portrait is the most hilarious one I have ever seen. She will LOVE that even more when she’s older.
You’re both amazing!
And I LOVE the self portrait. LOVE it!
Aw, what a good mom. my girl gets a pony tail nearly every day of the week. I’m pretty pathetic when it comes to hair.

I just like that she added dimples to her self portrait.
