Two bow or not two bow

>> Tuesday, August 7, 2007

My husband and I are pretty clueless fashion wise and this will unfortunately get passed on to our babes. Give me a skirt, a tee/tank, and my Birks and I am good to go. Poor kids, they actually are kind of starting to look like mini-me's. Piper just turned 2 a few weeks back and a friend of ours MADE her 3 bows - WOW! They turned out super cute and are very well put together. Here is the deal, we have never actually put a bow on either of our daughter's - we just aren't bow people ya know? One day I showed them to Piper and she loves them. Here and there she has been wearing them around the house but yesterday decided she wanted to wear them! Matt came home from work and laughed about it but when we decided to take the girls to get some ice cream can you guess what was in her hair? Not 1 hair bow, nope 2 :) My husband tried to get her to take them out but no go and here she is with ice cream still on her chinny chin chin...

She asked for them AGAIN today when we went out but I talked her into just the cute pink one and not both. OK, I could have done it last night too but I like to torture my hubby all the time sometimes. What are your opinions on hair bows? Do your girls wear them or if you had a little girl would you put her in them? Just curious about that and wondering if my dh and I are in a minority.

Because it seems like I talk about my oldest more (don't mean to) and because I *heart* this shirt so much here is the babe last night being a rockin girlie girl with her big sis's necklace and Mom tattoo tee.

I would also like to post about a FABULOUS contest that Andrea is having on her blog sponsored by Four Peas to win one of their cool backpacks. If I am the lucky mama who wins I would love the Rock Star. I am such an orange lover! How hip would your kiddos be walking into school with one of those?

Hey - I was here visiting from the Memory Lane "Two Lines" entry (I'm a glutton for birth stories, pregnancy stories, the works) and anywho, I want to wish you luck with the Four Peas drawing. I won a backpack from them off of Steph's Adventures in Babywearing, and I LOVE IT. My daughter loves it too. Hope you win!

I HATE those awful headband thingies they put on bald infants. Really, if there is no hair I don't get the point.
However if I had a girl with HAIR, I think i would do the bow thing for dressy occasions. It would depend on my kiddo though. I'd let her take the lead on this one.
I'm a casual mom myself. I prefer bright/dark/retro styles for my lil man. (He has that mom tat shirt too!)

I'm not really a "bow" kind of gal, myself, however, I admit that on my own daughter, not only do I do bows and ribbons at times, but all kinds of hair styles from pony tails to Princess Leia buns. (*blush*). Of course, there are plenty of days her hair is barely brushed but...
