Skylar, on the other hand, has apparently turned to the wild side. She was begging me to take her picture as she was table dancing to Veggie Tales in her too small, mismatched pajamas. Should I be concerned about this behavior? Is this what happens after only one evening of attention deprivation due to an ill sibling?

Londyn was first, and insisted that she keep cutting it shorter.
The final unfixed product, but shorter as you can see. It's not terribly short, but enough to make a difference. Every girl needs a change now and again, right? They were thrilled, I'm hoping I can figure out a cute way to fix it. (I know my mom is cringing as she is reading this. Sorry mom, it'll grow back.)

..an ear, according to Skylar. Last night as I was diligently trying to make dinner as well as get ready and get to church by 7:00PM, my sweet children wanted so badly to help. (It's a rare occasion when they actually see their mother cooking a meal.) As I was chopping away at the peppers, onion and cilantro to make pineapple salsa, they are both climbing up the drawers to get on the counter to help. I let them both try to use the chopper, but they just weren't quite strong enough. So, Skylar resorted to analyzing the red pepper, questioning about the seeds and such. I try to encourage her, thinking she may actually become brave enough to taste this newly introduced vegetable. Wishful thinking. She informed me that she might try it if didn't look so much like an ear.

It absolutely cracks me up how upset Skylar gets about losing. She rarely ever cries or acts out, but she is just enough of a perfectionist that she cannot stand to lose, especially to her sister. If she even begins to think that she won't win, she immediately gets in a bad mood and starts pouting. She actually cried real tears from losing Chutes and Ladders.

Londyn giving it her best shot, but not quite able to pull off a genuine smile.
