Tot Talk: Fix It Up Pappie

Today, for the first time in a long time, I put my hair in ponytail

Alex: “Mommy, you hair looks pretty today.”

Me: “Thank you, Alex!”

Alex: “Did Daddy fix it for you?”

(He has picked up the very southern term fixing your hair.)

I don’t know where he got the idea that Daddy did my hair. Since I am the one who combs and fixes the kids’ hair, he must think that one cannot possibly fix one’s own hair. Someone has to do it for you. He’s very much an agape child. He follows the Spitzerian ethic of agape (http://www.robertspitzer.org), in which we must lovingly do for each other.

ah, Spitzer!! the people without elbows, right? Such a great story!

I'll be seeing Spitzer this coming weekend at the CCD congress in Anaheim, CA. Should be good :)

Alex is such a doll :) I'm sure you did look so pretty with your hair up, even if Andrew didn't do it for you ;)
