They were all excited up until their names were called. Then, of course, Arella promptly flipped out. When I tried to carry her over, she began diving full force out of my arms. Meanwhile, Zoe marched right after the stylist and hopped up in the chair by herself. Since she had little sleep last night, I assumed Zoe would be the one to freak out. You just never how kids will react to something new no matter how well you prepare them. But I've learned that as you have more kids, the odds go up that at least one will completely loose it at any given activity.
Zoe sat there like she was being made into a princess. Not one drop of fear. She just seemed to be waiting for the magic to happen. Then she got sparkles sprayed in, and it was like the fairy godmother just bippity-boppity-booed her right into Cinderella.
Zoe was able to reassure Arella that it wasn't scary and didn't hurt. That plus a sucker did the trick. Arella did great from that point on, although she didn't need sparkles to feel like a princess.
Thanks Snip-its for a good experience!
Happy Friday friends.
