Whoa mama! She is lookin cute and crazy at the same time! There is no taming these locs now! They are every which way, and it's funny, because she is so sassy......her hair matches her personality!! She is the Wild Woman in town! And she will tell ya all about it too!
Headed toward five months locked.......and here is where we are!

Someone said to me, "you may have 6 kids, but you have never had a Zoe". How right they are!!!! Whew! She is FAST!
This was a classic that I hope someday to look back and laugh about......my precious little stinker!
Terry was painting some doors for a lady and used our master bathroom because it is under construction anyway AND has a hook and eye lock up high so when he left the room, he could safely lock it.......well, on one of his trips, he forgot and this is what happened in 90 seconds.
How in the name of sweet Jesus does one get this much paint out of a child's hair?

Just a real quick picture I took when I was taking ponytails out of Cassidy's locs because although it's a total mess, it shows how LONG her hair has gotten!!! Tomorrow will be 4 months locked!!!! I should measure them!! Ok.......they are all between 5 and 1/2 to 6 inches long!! We are getting there! I am so excited to be able to use Lona's Creations tie backs, I am itchin for her hair to grow!! lol If you haven't seen her lock ties, check them out, she makes beautiful things, but your hair needs to be long enough to be put all back :) We gave one as a gift to our loctitian and I was so excited to see she was wearing it when we went back in for re tightening!!
So, for many, this is nothing! I understand and wish it were nothing to me..........but for me to be able to say that the only dirty clothes in this house are currently on bodies and all sheets, blankets, curtains and basically anything not nailed to the wall has been laundered and my laundry room is clean and organized is a MAJOR FEAT indeed!! Especially in winter when all the clothes are bigger, heavier, muddier, wetter and yuck, and of course I have two children in cloth diapers that I wash :)
So as insignificant as this may seem, I needed the sense of accomplishment, and Terry thought it so note worthy, he captured it on camera (of course joking that it won't stay this way and a picture will last longer!) but I beg to differ!!
So here it is! One room at a time right?
And I realize this isn't the laundry room, but it was my Christmas Present from my Daddy and my husband. My dad paid for it and my husband made it. There is no greater joy at the moment then to have the forbidden PILE at the front door GONE! WHOOO HOOOO Each child has an area for shoes, coats, gloves, bookbags, skateboards, purses and whatever else! Happy mama!!!
