The Bean loves to put on a tutu and dance. Frequently she insists upon Christmas Music which is a little weird in the Spring but who am I to argue. We were sent a tutu and hair clip from Posh Little Tutus and they, like all the Posh Little Tutus offerings, are springy, girly and cotton candy sweet. Posh Little Tutus range in size from infants to size 12, come in all the jelly bean colors of the rainbow, and are made in chiffon and traditional premium tulle. Each tutu comes with lots of coordinating accessories (including fairy wings!) so whether you’re looking for that perfect outfit for a princess party, a costume for a first ballet recital, a magical present, an enchanting flowergirl dress, or a special portrait outfit, you’ll have your little peony dressed from head to toe.
My baby girl loves her hair. She has, however, had only two hair cuts in her entire life. We took her to the fancy schmancy overpriced NYC hair cutting place for kids…where your kid can sit in a cool car and watch videos and have a bevy of really friendly stylists blowing bubbles and singing songs. The amazingly skilled stylist cut her hair quickly, efficiently and beautifully. And the Little Bean howled and cried the entire time. So now when I say “Bean, do you want to get a haircut?,” she smiles sweetly and says “No thank you.” Even when I add the most tempting of all incentives…”we’ll get a cupcake afterward,” she still replies in a maddeningly polite voice “No thank you, Mama.”
I’ve kinda had it with batteries. I mean, don’t get me wrong. All my baby wants to play with, really, is the cell phone and the TV remote. And after Dr. Oz informed my mother via “Oprah” this week that children really should not use cell phones because no research has been conducted regarding what effects cell phones have on developing brains (let alone grown-up ones I suspect), I am somewhat forbidden to allow her to do so. Although I have attempted to limit the amount of plastic c-r-a-p that has invaded our small apartment, we do have a heck of a lot of it. And though the Elmo remote control does make fun sounds, I find myself yearning for more toys that do not light up and quack and move about on their own accord. More toys that I can feel good about.
