Mary Clare sported pigtails to school yesterday for the first time, so of course I had to commemorate the occasion. Of course, she is now at the stage where seeing a camera inspires her to scrunch up her face and say "cheesh!" As if her father and I didn't give her squinty enough eyes as it is.

But the point of this post is the pigtails, and they are pretty darned cute. And they do make her look grown up. Too grown up, apparently, since upon seeing her yesterday, her teacher started talking about how Mary Clare will soon transition to the three-year-old classroom.


Mary Clare may be ready to transition, but her mom sure isn't. So that's the last we'll be seeing of these pigtails, I can tell you that much.


  1. First pigtails, then she's driving herself to pre-school. I hear it goes by quickly. They are super-cute though!

  2. "Cheesh"! I can never get through that one with a straight face...

  3. I LOVE the pigtails. Adorbs. And two matching bows for the pigtails? Love that even more.

  4. You know, of course, that the debut of the pigtails had to be delayed until I had two matching bows. Like I'd let her out of this house without a bow. What kind of mom do you think I am?

  5. She looks just like her dad! (at least in that pic!)
