See this cutie....
(this is Meghan holding the beautiful "bouquet" that she picked....)
She has decided that....under no circumstances....will she wear shorts this summer. I do not know why! She will wear pants or dresses and that is IT. I have some shorts for her that are like little skirts (skorts) but she won't wear those either. Pants or dresses. If I try to put shorts on her, she will scream and throw a fit and run away. It isn't like others in the family don't wear shorts. I actually do not wear shorts for many reasons, but all of her siblings do and her dad does. It is a total mystery to me!
As if that wasn't crazy enough, she will NOT let me put any kind of pony tail in her hair. Late last summer, I had cut her hair waaaaaay short by accident and, though it ended up being adorable on her, I regretted not being able to style it in anyway. It is finally growing out and often hangs in her face, but again, she will kick and scream if I put a pony tail in. She runs away screaming "No pony tail!!!" If I do get one in successfully, she screams for a few minutes and then rips it out. Ellie has long curly hair and I grew her bangs out so I have to do her hair every day to keep it out of her face. I think she lets me because she is so used to it. I sometimes wonder what people think when Ellie's hair is all pretty and well done and Meghan's just hangs straight down. Aaron thinks I should cut it again since she won't let me style it, but I am so thrilled it is finally growing out, that I am not ready to chop it again (though a bang trim is definitely in her future!!!).
So, there is our "Nutmeg"- this is a story that just had to be recorded for posterity's sake!!!
