Exciting Events in Houston

Finally, a ponytail! This mommy has waited 2 years to put her daughter's hair in a full-fledged pony tail & yesterday, we finally did it. Little K was convinced she looked like a movie star and showed her friends at nursery school her new hair-do. My husband & I marveled at how much Little K has grown -- not just her hair but her awareness, her charm and her temperment. It's just another reminder of how quickly they grow.

We're also excited about the new Winnie the Pooh show that will begin Saturday, May 12 on the Disney Channel. "My Friends Tigger & Pooh" is sure to bring back fond memories from my own childhood but Little K has been eagerly awaiting the show. Perhaps our family will have a small Winnie the Pooh party that morning to celebrate. I love how the old shows seemed to weave in a positive lesson. Hope the new edition does, too.
