A couple weeks ago my bestie and little bestie spent the weekend down south. That means they got to spend a night with me... yay! Ever since Eric and I got married we have slowly been collecting Disney movies. Each time one is released from the vault we buy it (as well as the other pixar movies we love... How to Train a Dragon is Eric's favorite movie. And Tangled might be mine. No judging!) so that when we have kids we'll have the movies! It was so fun buying Cinderella last week knowing that I will actually have my own little princess to watch the movie with :) Anyway, Lily wanted to watch a movie and she picked Mulan. Ashley told me Lily hadn't watched that one before and I was excited for her to see it! Eric and I love the music in Mulan. We always bust out singing, "Let's get down to business....." and I know we aren't the only ones who love that song :)
As Lily snuggled up on the floor with blankets and treats (again, don't judge! I'm not used to the idea of sticky, slimy fingers all over my couches just yet, ha ha!) Ashley and I sat and talked each others ears off! I heard the music begin in the scene when Mulan leaves her family to go be a soldier, when all the sudden I stopped paying attention to what Ashley was saying and I watched Lily to see her reaction to the part that was coming up. Wondering what part I'm talking about?
Yeah. That part. Freaking Disney! Don't they think about the ideas they will be putting in little girl's minds before writing out the script?? Anyway, Lily didn't seem to react when Mulan chopped her hair off. But she caught me staring at her and the first thing that comes out of her mouth is, "Mulan cut her hair!" So I paused the movie and gave her a stern talk that only Courtney cuts her hair! If Lily cuts her hair she'll be in big trouble because only Courtney cuts it. She agreed with me but I have been worried about her hair ever since she watched that movie! Why am I so worried? Because Lily has the most gorgeous head of hair ever.
My little bestie is one gorgeous girl! Wondering where she got all that hair?
Her mama! I know... we can all talk about how much we hate her because we are jealous of her hair later. Back to the story! Ashley sent me a text a couple days ago informing me that I might need to bring my scissors when I come visit because Lily cut her hair. I almost had a heart attack! (Again, no judging! I can be dramatic at times, ha!) Ashely had Lily call to tell me that she cut her hair all by herself. I tried to scold her but I could hear the fear in her voice as she apologized over and over again. I couldn't help it and I started laughing! Ashley took the phone away from Lily as fast as she could and scolded me for laughing because Lily's fear disappeared as soon as I did. Oops! Here's hoping I'll have the scolding thing down by the time my daughter needs it ;) Are you dying to know how bad Lily's chop job was? I know I was dying... and Ash waited 2 whole days to text me a picture.
Not bad! She must have learned a thing or two from her amazing hairstylist ;) But seriously. I'm so grateful she didn't cut a bigger chunk of hair, or go any shorter. Luckily this is an easy fix! It definitely could have been SO much worse! I just hope Lily doesn't try cutting her hair ever again!
And needless to say... I guess I'll be watching Disney movies all by myself while baby girl naps. Disney movies are a bad influence ;) ha ha!
