Kara Gets Pampered In Style

My weekend consisted of three photo shoots, one ladies' night out, one end-of-season soccer party, four Chinese classes and one afternoon of pampering for Kara. Whew! Busy, busy, but lots of fun.

Kara was invited by a friend to go to a local kids' salon to get a mani, pedi and hair updo on Saturday afternoon. I wasn't sure what her reaction would be, as Kara originally told us she didn't like anything girly or fancy. Well, four months in this girly house and it doesn't surprise me that I have seen a gradual shift in her tastes, but I still wasn't sure if a couple hours getting the spa treatment would be a bit much. It's not that I ever thought she would dislike it, but I wasn't sure how much she would really enjoy it, if that makes sense. I think the pictures speak for themselves. Kara loved every moment! The best part for me was when she was getting a pedicure. She couldn't stop laughing because she was so ticklish. For the updo, she chose the "princess" hairstyle. After she was finished, she said, "Look, Mom, I look like Tinkerbell!" And best of all, she got to enjoy this experience with two friends.

Okay, so I'm one with the Kara-before attitude - not my cup of tea at all. (People actually touching my feet?!?!! Ack!!) But I love that Kara fell in love with the experience. And I love that she's developed friendships so that she was able to share the experience. Gorgeous girls with gorgeous hearts!
