With the green-eyed monster rearing its ugly head since Thomas' birthday...things around here have been very unsettled, and very pouty lately where big sister is concerned.
If I had a dime for every time she asked me "how many more days until my birthday?!"
So, being the creative me, I made her a countdown calendar. And, it is likely the most elaborate countdown ever!
She loved the movie "Tangled" (it's about Rapunzel), and so going with that theme, I had the great idea to countdown the days on her super long hair. But, to make it more fun, she can cut the braid at the end of each day until there is one left.
I braided many, many strands of yellow yarn, and and added rubber bands along the braid. Then, I cut dollar store flowers off of a tiny pot arrangement and added numbers. I then glued the flowers in her hair at the rubber bands.
Let me just say that Gracie LOVES it!
She cut of the hair tonight, and you could see her grin in outer space I am sure!
