Sticky Situation

I ended up cutting this out of Emmalie’s hair today – yuck! I had started with the ice and trying to pry each hair from the sticky gooey mess, with each moment Em was growing more and more upset. It was odd though – I was on the phone with my mom and she came up to me(ask me for a snack), and just hugged my leg (I have worked long and hard to not be interrupted while on the phone). I started to play with her hair, and got stuck, and she didn’t think anything of it! She wasn’t going to say a thing – just go find some more gum! Don’t worry we waited on that for a while – and then with closer supervision =)
I was thinking about me trying to get the gum out – why didn’t I just go the easy route and cut it to begin with? It was near the bottom and back of her hair – she was probably laying down. . . Oh well – I think sometimes I just have to try the preferred method instead of trying to just get by. No one will ever notice – she has lots of curls AND it was well hidden.
After that we had a great day! Some extended family have been in town and we went to the hotel they were at to swim in the pool. Maybe I should back that up, and say after we left the house it was great. Getting swimsuits on, sunscreen on, snacks, and baby paraphernalia together took an hour and Owen just wanted me – again yuck. Good thing I started early.
My sewing machine (Claire, maybe) has been tucked away since Owen’s birthday – hopefully tomorrow I can get her out and post something beautiful! I have my two quilt tops finished but lack a few necessary items to finish – soon. . .

    Not once we got the scissors out! She was wincing with every tug before the scissors =)
