Pigtails - Elizabeth Unexplained
Lots of data but no answers
I declare today the day of hair-themed posts about the kids.

Warren has declared that he does not like me putting Margaret's hair in "little girl" hairdos. One of the very reasons I wanted a little girl was to do cute things with her hair when she would tolerate it. Please feel free to comment on the subject.

She looks adorable.

What doesn't Warren like about girly hairdos?

I'm certainly puzzled by this! Is it the "little" he doesn't like, as opposed to the "girly"? Margaret certainly seems to love the bows and flowers and ruffles, in her hair and elsewhere...

I lean towards whatever Margaret's opinion is. If she's not consistently taking them out, and keeping age-appropriate track of them herself, why not?

Of course, understand this is from someone who's been letting her kids dress themselves for years now, be that pajamas under regular clothes for preschool or shorts-until-I-hide-the-things or the weirdest combination of colors ever. :)

I think this photo accurately reflects Margaret's opinion of pigtails:


That, my friend, is the expression of a very small person who, despite her youth, understands perfectly well when her parents are objectifying her as a toy, rather than treating her as the mature, intelligent adult that she so obviously is.

Well, I have to admit that you may be right about that. She pulled the pigtails out shortly after I took the photos.

She doesn't look particularly unhappy, but she does look like she has a runny nose.
