The Red Bow

I've been meaning to post about this for a while. Kati Ann is a creature of habit. She likes things to do things the same way each time we do it. So, lots of mornings Jared & Kati Ann go down stairs to have cereal and juice while I shower or get a little extra sleep. I have requested that Jared always pull Kati Ann's hair back when she eats so that her hair isn't sticky when I try to fix it later and it keeps her from screaming (as much).
Most mornings, Jared would forget to get a bow before coming downstairs and he quickly got tired of having to run upstairs to get a bow every morning. So being innovative, Jared introduced Kati Ann to the "Red Bow". It is a magnet that stays on our refrigerator and every morning he pulls her hair back with it. After finishing her cereal, Kati Ann removes her "bow" and returns it to a specific spot on the refrigerator.
On mornings when I am downstairs doing cereal & juice (we could serve something different for breakfast but right now it has to be cereal and juice because she's quite the creature of habit), I will try to put her hair up with an actual hair bow and she insists on the "Red Bow."
Oh, the memories you make with Daddy!
