first haircut

We prepared for the worst when we finally decided to give Halle her first haircut. Can it be called a haircut when all she really needed was her bangs trimmed? She is not exactly known for sitting still. Try brushing her teeth, she is practically a contortionist. We put her high chair in front of the tv and turned on a movie hoping it would keep her from jabbing scissors into her eye kamikaze style. Who knew she would sit perfectly still and smile while dad smushed her face and trimmed her bangs. She looks like a little girl now. I admired them for the rest of the day. I even did that creepy thing where you gather the hair and keep it so you can tape it in a book and look at it always. Very stalkerish, but that's how much I love her.

it's all in your mind

This picture was taken midday, today on this fine Monday in August. The subject of the picture was about to embark on a four hour exam with mind bending and crushing abilities. To be more specific he was off to take the first part of the CPA exam. Yes, I said first part. There are, in fact, four parts to this exam and yes, this one part itself is four hours. My mind wants to explode just thinking about it. I would like to draw your attention to the bottle of coca-cola he is holding. This was a red flag for me when he asked me to purchase one at the store. The subject is usually only found drinking this in only the most exhausting circumstances when his brain needs a little boost. Did you know they are not allowed any food or drink during this marathon exam? I wonder how our subject's mind is feeling?
Examine the picture and decide for yourself
