Briefs and Bears

I have been caught in a 72-hour non-stop Daubert drafting vortex. There has been no sleep, a bit of stress, and a LOT of writing (followed by deleting, followed by more writing, followed by searching for better cases to cite, followed by some re-writing...). But the brief is done, the partners have approved, and the client just told me I get a gold star.

I really like gold stars.

Completely unrelated, I came home today to an adorable, squealing, pigtailed Little Bear who RAN into my arms when I walked in the door. The pigtails were new, courtesy of Ms. Natalie, and I was both charmed and suddenly awash in insecurity over the fact that I don't know how to do hair. Something new to research, I suppose.

A picture of the pigtailed Bear was necessary, of course:

Oh, this girl. This girl, who suddenly looks like such a little Girl (where is my chubby baby Biscuit?), she just kills me. In the most awesome, fabulous, oh-my-god-I-love-you-so-much it hurts kind of way.


  1. You have to put the little hair on top of her head into two little pigtails. You have to. I promise you, it will be so worth it.

  2. So cute! I am terrible at hair/accessorizing but I feel like I'm getting a second chance to learn now with a daughter. Looks like Claire will have some great hair to practice with!

  3. Following Anon's lead…ponytail holders/rubberband-types may not work with her shorter, wispier locks on top. Try the easy slip-on style clips which come in a variety of choices from traditional bows, watermelons, doggie faces, flowers, etc. One or 2 clips in the middle of that head would look sooooo sweet!

  4. There are rubber band style holders that are especially for little girls. They are very small and thin and work well for her age. I remember buying a package for my daughter from Target.
