Little Miss Diva daughter over at Dust Bunny Hostage came up with the idea of having positive day. This was of course after a bad experience with a critic who was so negative about a movie. She decided (with the help of her mom) to rewrite the article more positive. And made the remark that when she runs for president in 2032 she will enforce a positive day. Well from this experience was born Positive Day in the Bloggosphere.
I know Girly Do's is about hair, but I hope you understand that it is about so much more then just hair. It is about building relationships with our daughters and using this time if it is the only time you have in a day to talk to your daughters and enjoy them. When I say this challenge from Diva Daughter I thought what better way to support our daughters then to support another mom that was supporting her daughter. So I hope you don't mind this break from our regular hair stuff to be extra positive for today.
One of the things that makes me happy is my three kids. I have two boys and Beans and every one of them is so special to me. D (my seven year old) is the kindest most thoughtful boy. He was born first because he is a true leader and a great friend to the younger two. He loves everyone with a love so pure. He is so forgiving and positive always. If I could be like anyone in this whole world I would be just like him. Beans (almost 5) is beautiful and smart. She's the funny one in our family. She says the most off the wall things that make you laugh so hard you almost pee your pants when she talks. She was supposed to be our surprise baby and we weren't going to find out her gender when we were pregnant, but I couldn't handle it. I was so sure she was a girl I had to find out because I thought I would be disappointed if I was wrong. I was right! And she's been 100% girl her whole life. She is amazing! She was born in Rhode Island so we call her little Miss Rhode Island all the time. Baby J (almost 2) is a lover. Almost two and he still cuddles. I may have died and gone to heaven. I am so lucky to have such a cuddly baby. Every morning he wakes up before everyone else and joins me in bed. Cuddles me tight and falls back to sleep. I lay there and say my prayers thanking God he gave him and the other two to me. Its my favorite time of the day.
My husband would be top shelf for me too. He is so supportive of my crazy idea's and hobbies. He even loves to know whats going on over here at Girly Do's and will bribe Beans for me when she doesn't want to have her hair done and I have a good idea to try. It doesn't happen often, but when it does he's there to support my hobbies. He and I have been married for almost nine years and they have been the best nine years of my life.
One of the greatest most positive influences in my life right now is my friend "The Mom" over at Babes in Hair Land. She and I met after this whole hair blogging thing took off and have been friends ever since. We have talked about joining blogs before but haven't done it. Maybe in the future we will come up with something to do together. But I just adore her and her family. Her husband has the best sense of humor and he makes me laugh. I am grateful for her and her friendship.
My sister and my mom! Two of the best women in my life and the best shoulder and ear combo! No one in the world could hold a light to these two and what they have done for me in my life. I learned how to be a loving mom from my mom and how to be a fun one from my sister. All thought there was that one time my mom got drunk with a root beer float and came into our room jumping on our beds--- maybe I got the fun from both of them.
I could go on and on, but I think that is pretty good. I hope that all of you reading this today will go write your own post being positive about everything in your life and go over to Dust Bunny Hostage and let Diva Daughter know you participated in her positive day.
