I finally found a beauty shop I love. I went the other day to get a trim and color and I thought Portia would like to go too. Her hair was almost at her waist and needed a trim.
Something you should know about Portia, she wants to be a mermaid when she grows up and she dreams of seeing the princesses and Cinderella at Disney Land.
A couple years ago, she saw a commercial for Disney Land and you could enter to win a stay at Cinderella's castle! She saw the two beds in the room and said MOM! why is there two beds? before I could respond she said, Oh, one must be for her husband.
So the morning of her haircut, she came into the bathroom while I was getting ready and asked me , Mom, are mermaids real? I said well I'd like to think they are! I just could not say anything but that, to her. Then she said are the Disney princesses real or do they wear costumes?
I said OF COURSE THEY ARE REAL!!
Don't you think little girls grow up to fast? I could not tell my little girl that mermaids and Disney princesses were not real. I remember when I was little I was in complete and utter love with unicorns. I still have the pictures I drew of unicorns.
Well, when I found out they weren't real... I was so sad, I cried and cried. I just feel like my sweetie is going to grow up and have enough disappointments in life, why start now when she is still so innocent.
So for now my little girl still wants to be a mermaid. After we left the salon she said, Mom it's a girls day we need to go to lunch! So off we went. We also went to Target for a sketch pad so she could draw her designs for Barbie clothes. It was a good day.
