Is this what I've taught my sweet little girls to yell when one sister has the big brother in a choke hold? I couldn't believe "Choke Him!" was coming out of Joy's sweet little mouth.
Fortunately for Eva, Jack was a good sport during it all. She doesn't understand or even care that Jack just received his black belt in karate. As rotten as Jack can be to his sisters, he never once got too rowdy with either of the girls. He always gently removed them from his head, shoulders, or face. How gentlemanly of him! Ivy was much too lady-lake to participate in such activities. She sat by and just giggled.
Remember the "comb stuck in the hair" incident? Well, hair has been an issue in our house lately. Or rather, the lack of brushing the hair. The girls were capable of brushing their hair from the top down to about the shoulders. Anything longer than that got neglected. It was usually a snarly mess every single day. So, I finally ventured out with all 3 and took them for cuts. I was quite pleased with the results, and the girls all had fun times.
Ivy is sending her hair to a "Locks of Love" type program with Pantene. She only had 7 inches cut off, not the 10 inches needed for Locks of Love. Eva had about 5 inches off. Joy had less cut off because her hair is much easier to care for (as long as it isn't twisted in a comb).
Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri
