Green day, traps, and hair gone wrong

So, the kids were so excited for St. Patrick's day. Isabelle wanted to make a leprechan trap too, since Robert got to make one. So, I let she and Clara make one the day before St. Patrick's day.For St.Patrick's I served a green meal of green pizza (the dough, and meat (thanks to Robert)), green jello salad, and broccoli. Oh, and I colored the milk green too. The kids loved it:)
I have been so impressed with Austin lately. He is starting to accurately point out colors (like green and pink anyways). He will talk in full sentences sometimes. He has even engaged in some word play games. Today he said to me, "Mommy, you Sleeping Beauty". To which I replied, "Austin, you are Thomas the Train."
Austin-"No, you Thomas!" I just love this little guy! He is so fun! Also, after night after night of telling him to stop getting out of his bed, I am no longer giving him a nap, and lo and behold it is working! (Thanks Kim!)
Robert is doing so well in school. Before it would take a while to pass a reading level, and he is passing them one a week now! He seems so much more happy and confident:) He has friends at school and is learning to do so many things on his own (he poured his own milk this week). We are proud of this guy. Oh, and by the way, yes, we let our kids climb up on the counters if they are willing to do things for themselves!
So, Rob and I have talked about bleaching our hair together for a while. We thought it would be fun. We used to have hair as light as the kids and wanted to get the same shade. Boy did we go wrong! I am totally looking like a punk rock girl now! All I need is to dye the bottom of my hair black and it would complete the look huh! Oh well, I have decided to still go out in public with my fake hair, and just make fun of myself. So, now you can too!Lastly, we found a mouse in our house this week! It was just a little baby, I sure hope we don't find more!

Well, I think your hair looks cute. Just like I remember you in college! Isn't it weird how our hair got darker after having kids?

I hope you didn't do this after my comment about your hair being darker. I really like your new haircut!
You have got to be the best mom... you always do so well at enriching your children: making leprechaun traps, word games, working out together and so much more.
Have fun, we hope to see you soon.

I have so done worse to my hair. I think the first time I colored my hair on my own I turned it orange. Everyone would look at me and was like I hope you learned your lesson and will never do that by yourself again. Well I did I don't do it by myself anymore. After about a week or two my hair started to fade which was good. I think you hair cut looks great.

I think your hair is really cute too. And it's cut! How brave! I don't think I've ever seen you with short hair! It looks great :)

Gina, don't worry. I didn't do it because of you. Rob and I have been talking about this for a long time.

Thanks for the compliments.

Amy, I actually chopped my hair for the first time when I was in 12th grade. I was a way big deal then! But, I have been doing it back and forth since, so it is not as scary. But, I usually go back to long hair in the end.
