My kiddo's hair is the longest that it has ever been. So we've been ponytailing, braiding, headbanding and everything else we can think of.
It's particularly thrilling for me to get to braid her hair everyday. (She wants them everyday.) For the first time in her six years, she's letting me Do Stuff with her hair. This is the kid who refused any and all clips, rubber bands, barrettes or hair ties. She would run away screaming if I got anywhere near her with any hair bobbins. (Yes, I think I'm going to be using the word "bobbin" A LOT more often, by the way.)
And I think we're going to start in on reading 'Pippi Longstocking' when we finish up 'Dr. Doolittle'. But I'm torn. Do I stick with the original Astrid Lindgren? Or go for the Lauren Child illustrated version, which I've heard is amazing? On the one hand, I hate to deviate from the original genius of the original work, but I really do adore Lauren Child. The version in the picture above is mine from when I was little. What should I do?
