A futile effort…

We are all going out.

Miss Tot’s nicely dressed.

But her hair is like that of a Fraggle at best!

I look at my watch.

We’re running quite late?

No matter – The playgroup will just have to wait!

So I get her to sit (which is no easy feat!)

Form an intricate plait (which is ever so neat!)

Secure with pink bobbles, it looks quite a site!

Despite all the effort I glow with delight.

So we rush out’ the door,

But I don’t understand.

Why does my Tot have pink bobbles in hand?

I swallow a swear word and try not to shout!

“Here you go Mummy,

… The wind blew them out!”

*Swear word*

    1. It’s a nightmare honestly! To be fair though she never asks for it and would prefer to wear her unbrushed fraggle look. It’s me that insists on doing something with it just to give the impression that someone does actually own her? Yey to boys though hun. So much easier. Thanks for your comment xx

  1. Aaah, bless Miss Tot!! Although I’ll never get to do the fish plaits and other girl do’s, both my boys do have masses of thick hair, which needs frequent brushing, and I do try to put it in some kind of style (my husband says I give them ‘boy band’ hair!) and they do infuriate me by running their hands through my carefully coiffed styles!! So I do feel your frustration!!
    Thanks for sharing with #bigpinklink!

    1. What’s not to love about boy band hair!? It really is frustrating though when you spend ages on it and they immediately run and dive head first into a pile of cushions! Thanks so much for hosting πŸ™‚ x #bigpinklink

  2. Oh dear, what a little monkey! I’m sure my sister did that a few times, by the end of it my Mum shouted at her to leave her hair alone haha. Funny post as always! πŸ™‚ xxx #BigPinkLink

  3. I have 2 girls …luckily one of mine likes her hair short where all I have to do is quickly run a comb through it or maybe a little water pat if we showered the night before. The other one however, insists on having some kind of girlie girl hair every morning. And I wish she’d just wear the fraggle! Thanks for linking up with #momsterslink, as always love reading your stuff!

    1. The Fraggle is definitely the favoured option in our house on many a pre nursery “OMG how is it that time already?” Occasions πŸ˜‰ I have tried the water and pat down technique too but it just seems to dry even crazier than ever? Unfortunately she has her mother’s wild hair! Ah well. Thank you for reading and hosting #momsterslink x
