Keilei Says Keilei Does

Keilei was being a little stinker at breakfast. It is so hard to get her to eat. She had a little cup of applesauce and she was taking forever to eat it. She kept getting up and down, and playing with toys, etc. Finally I told her if she didn't eat I would spank her bum. Then I asked "Do you want me to spank your bum?" She looked at me with this smug tring to be innocent look and said "If you want to" I was shocked and so i asked her again to make sure I heard right and sure enough she said it again "If you want to."
So I spanked her bum, not hard, and then asked do you want me to spank you harder and she said "No just a little one"
What am I going to do with her?

Moving In

We have been busy last week packing. Then this weekend we moved in. Now we are busy trying to get unpacked and organized. I still have to go to the old house and clean it tomorrow. It shouldn't be too bad, I hope.
Thank you for the people that came and helped us move. We couldn't have done it without you!

It Works

I Lost 5lbs. in the last 2 weeks! So I guess I can say that so far weight watchers is working. And to be completely honest that is without me working out at all, literally, unless you count packing as working out?
I know that isn't a big number and I don't feel like I have lost anything but hey 5 lbs. is 5 lbs!

I am really liking learning portion sizes and what is really unhealthy. But I LOVE that I don't have to stop eating certain things, that is why I have never done any other "diets". This one I get to eat what I want to eat, just sometimes you have to figure how to balance it with other stuff, which is the way it should be!

When I was talking to Keilei yesterday about how she shouldn't cut her hair and asked her why she did it she said, "I cut my hair like tangled" and pointed to a picture of Repunzel. I told her no she had long pretty hair. She replied, "But Mom she cuts her hair at the end!"
How do I argue with that?

Keilei Cut Her Hair :(

Here is a before and after picture for you. Her hair was SOOO gorgeous and long and perfect and then she had to go and take the scissors to it!!!

I got out of the shower and got dressed and then went to check on the kids. And the first thing I saw was Keilei with a pair of scissors. I thought oh great she has been cutting up stuff, which she had. When I walked into her room to get the whole picture there was some paper stuff she had cut up but then what I saw on the chair made me scream! (Not at her, just in horrified surprise)

She had cut her hair!!!
It was in this dust pan on the chair and on the chair....
A couple different spots on the floor with bunches of hair....
And later I found this in the garbage.
When I looked at her the first thing I noticed was that she had cut at her pony tail....
But after I found the hair in the garbage I checked her more closely.

She had taken a huge chunk of hair off on the side of her head. When I took her hair out of the pony it covered it and it just looked layered in the back, not to bad. But if I did anything with her hair, which I do everyday so it isn't in her face, then this really short chunks totally showed.
So I decided to cut it off. Which made me want to bawl, it still does. But I though a cut a-line haircut would be cute on her. I wanted to keep at much length as possible. I called a couple friends I know that do hair and Shawnee was so sweet to help me out and give Keilei her 1st haircut. I didn't just want to take Keilei to any salon cause I wanted her to have a good haircut. I didn't want someone I have never been to to think oh it is JUST a 3 yr old and hack off her hair. So luckily Shawnee was free.
This is what I pictured in my head, I love how this looks but it turned out a bit shorter.
but the it still looks so cute and I love all the layers in her hair. I love the way Shawnee cuts hair I knew she wouldn't make her look bad.
(I know it looks uneven in this picture but it really isn't)
This is how much length we cut off :(
I am SO going to miss Keilei's long gorgeous hair...I am in morning for her hair(I probably will be till it grows back)
